A YEAR OF KNITTING EZ….January through December, 2010
Part Knit-a-Long, part Book Club continues through the summer - join us as we celebrate the life of “the godmother of knitting” Elizabeth Zimmerman by working our way through her classic knitting diary the “Knitters Almanac”. Each month we will read a chapter and, if you chose to, knit that month’s project from the book – helping each other out along the way. Book discussion is encouraged and we will even have some prizes along the way! In order to participate in the KAL, you must have a copy of Knitters Almanac. (No sharing, for copyright reasons of course! If you do not already own one, please let Suzanne and she can order a copy for you. This book is a treasure that should be in every knitters libray and costs less than many single patterns these days).
