Thanksgiving is coming here at the French Knot

     Holidays are upon us once more and that means we’re busy knitting, crocheting and needlepointing our fingers off getting those gifts finished.  Once the holidays are over, we decided to put our feet up, rest and in the company of good friends and family, do a January Knit a long.  Meg chose Emiliana.  This shawl and it’s technique is very popular and nearly 600 people have knit this beautiful shawl in just 1 year!  Mosiac knitting  has been popular and, what’s awesome about this project is  the color combinations are endless.  Only 2 colors!!  A light and a Dark, or a Light and a Variegated. Whatever you choose, this project will be great to knit and beautiful to wear. We have lots of choices in fingering weight for you to work with.  Here is a photo of one in progress.  Inspirational Project Photos on Ravelry to help you with your color choices.20161115_090000 We will start Tuesday January 3rd.  Don’t let another year go by without learning how to make something beautiful.  

Don’t forget our  Felted Bag KAL coming up December 6th.  If you purchase the yarn here the pattern is free.
