Summer Knit-A-Long at The Naked Sheep

I’ve received lots of positive feedback regarding doing some knit-a-longs this summer. Although only a couple specific sweater suggestions have been given…

One idea I received is to have 3 different sweaters to choose from, but not limit them to a certain month. Knitter A might choose to knit just one of the designs, and take all summer to do it…no problem! Knitter B might choose to knit two of the designs we’ve chosen…no problem! And Knitter C (you know who you are!!!) might just knit all 3 choices and be itching to start on a fourth before the end of August…no problem!

Let’s keep it informal and fun and as non-competitive as possible (although a little healthy competition is good for you, right?!)

We'll gather at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop every Saturday afternoon in June, July and August (anytime between 12 and 3pm).

So here are the sweater suggestions…

Imagine from the Spring Issue of Knitty.

Something Red from Knit and Tonic

Owls by Kate Davies (This is a free pattern on Ravelry)

You’ll receive a 15% discount if you purchase your yarn for the knit-a-long at The Naked Sheep.

Further comments and ideas are welcomed, and they can be left here. Not really interested in making any of these sweaters? Join us anyway with whatever sweater you're working on!

I have been dying to do "Owls", so I would definitely join you for that. (Just looking for an excuse!) Plus, it seems to be a generally flattering and easily customizable pattern-- and free is good, of course!

I cast on stitches for Owls, and am already to the waist increases. It's a nice, quick knit! I'm using Cascade 128 Tweed in brown. We'll look forward to seeing you some Saturday!
