Have you ordered your yarn for the January Knit Along?

Endless Knitted Cardi Shawl
We are excited to be knitting and crocheting this Stitchdiva pattern together for our January Knitalong- the Endless Cardi Shawl! We have both the knit and crochet patterns for this sweater and would love to see both knitters and crocheters working with us this month. The sweater is worked up in one piece and very simple to knit or crochet while producing lovely results. It can be worn on its own, with a shawl pin, or a belt. The versatility also extends to the fact that it can be worn rightside up, upside down, and backwards! So whether you have been apprehensive to start your first sweater, or you have made many sweaters in the past, jump right in and join us!

The yarn will be ordered this Friday and will be arriving next week, so that we will hopefully be able to begin swatching when we meet Thursday night! We're offering 15% off on the yarn for this project, as well as the pattern, so come on in- it's not too late!
