To kick off 2022 we have not just one but, TWO knit-alongs to join in on! Becky and Sharon were inspired to knock out some gorgeous queued up patterns and we’d love to have you make them with us!

Join Becky as she leads the Oracle KAL. Cast on the Oracle or Half Oracle by Kristin Lehrer of Voolenvine. Join us in the shop or at home on January 1st with 3 skeins of fingering weight yarn.

 

Sharon will leading the Opus KAL also beginning January 1st! Cast on the Opus by Maxium Cyr in store or from your home.

These are both informal KALs, aiming to wrap up around March 1st, but as Stephen West says, “Its not a race, embrace your own pace”. You can use yarns from your stash or from the shop. You are welcome to gather in-store on Thursdays and Saturdays for the KAL.

Share your cast on and progress here on Ravelry or social media using the hashtag #TMSOracleKAL or #TMSOpusKAL or email us your photos!
