Nicky Epstein Weekly Knitalong & Giveaway
I recently purchased Nicky Epstien's book Knitting Block by Block. I was talking to the owner of my LYS (Knitting Criations in Somers, CT), Pam, and she told me her idea of knitting a block a month. Since I do not have enough months before Christmas, I thought that I could knit a block a week instead and have a beautiful afghan in no time! Kara came to my rescue and we are doing this project together as a friendship blanket. She will knit a square a week with me until we have enough squares. Then I will do the same for her after Christmas. Want to join us? Grab a partner - it will make a great project to work on with a good knitting friend! There IS enough time to start now and have one ready for Christmas! Nicky's book is a valuable asset to any knitter wanting to learn different techniques. Tackling them in small blocks makes it a lot easier. My first block is called The Portal Cable. I am using Berocco Vintage yarn which is a machine washable blend. Kara started with the Reversible Hourglass Pattern With our weekly knit a long now underway we want to encourage all of you to join us!
