Last year we had a few goodies, like on the T, in a bar, and at the beach. Where will you knit in public this week? Tell us and the send a picture! The best one wins a prize and their photo in our next email.

You may remember a few weeks back we had a very special workshop on “Fit to Flatter” knitting with Amy Herzog. Since then we’ve been hard at work not only knitting our own sweaters, but developing a plan to bring Custom Fit to the Stitch House. We are kicking things off with this intimate custom fit sweater workshop with Claudia. Claudia recently finished Herzog’s Acorn Trail sweater, custom to her measurements. and now we’re inviting you to do the same! This series will run for 10 sessions (9 as a group and 1 private) and costs $100 including the generated pattern. Together you will select your perfect yarn, take your measurements and get going on a sweater knit all for you! If you are interested in more details, please email or call us and we’ll fill you in! Sign Up Now – space is limited.
Series meets Saturday afternoons 4-6pm June 21, 28, July 12, 26, Aug 9, 16, 23, Sept 6, 13.
