If you participated, we would love to see your sweater!  Drop by the shop at any time so we can snap your picture.  Joyce (pictured above) came by this week to show off her Pure Linen version.  It came out so beautifully!

Diane (pictured above) also used Pure Linen but in the Atacama colorway.  She ran the Knit-a-Long for us since this was her second Forest Weave (her first one was knit in the Goby colorway).  Soon she’ll have a Forest Weave for every day of the week!

If you can’t make it to our shop, you are always welcome to send us a photo to info@imagiknit.com.  We can’t wait to see your Forest Weaves!

Diane’s Corner: Rowan Fur Review

Rowan Fur is just plain fun!

rowan-fur

Fur is a chunky weight yarn made from 97% wool with 3% polyamide to bind it.  Fur is super soft and well, furry.  Although the yarn is chunky, the fabric is light with a nice drape.

Fur is fun and easy to work with and is available in a natural palette of four shades.  Cozy up under a Fur scarf or cowl during the cold winter months.  Try Fur to make a striking statement piece.  The possibilities for this fun yarn are endless!

Machine Knitting Demo

Curious about machine knitting, but don’t know where to start? Come by the shop on Saturday, August 23rd for a free machine knitting demo!

Instructor Jillian Carrozza began specializing in knitwear design at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City ten years ago.  She went on to study at the world-renowned Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London where she gained invaluable industry experience from internships at design studios in Europe, such as Knit-1 in Brighton, England and John Galliano in Paris, France.  Trained in both industrial and domestic machine knitting, the designer’s acclaimed graduate collection was entirely hand crocheted from original patterns for textile structures she engineered.  Having recently returned to the west coast from New York City, Jillian looks forward to sharing her knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience with the knitting community of San Francisco.

She will be here at the shop at 11 AM on August 23rd to host a machine knitting demo.  Since we offer private lessons on machine knitting, joining us first for the demo will be a great way to figure out if the lesson will be right for you.  We’ll look forward to seeing you then!
