Calling All Baseball Fans! Let's Knit the Season! Spring training starts early this year!
We are prepping for our 2018 Baseball Knit Along! Are you game to make new friends? On deck to learn new knitting skills? Share the baseball season with other fans? This Knit the Season baseball knit along will hit it out of the ballpark! With Yvonne as your KAL Team Manager, you'll knit your favorite team's 2018 season using your team's colors.
2018 will be the third year for this knit along. We had a wonderful KAL in 2017 with 28 knitters knitting for the Giants, A’s, Yankees, Red Sox, Indians, and Tigers! We are trying for 40 knitters this season!
Many of 2017’s participants have been anxiously awaiting the design “reveal.” 2018’s project will be a 2-color brioche in-the-round tube with beads, and we’d like to introduce Invictus Yarns as the dyer for our kits! The ends of the tube will be joined, and you’ll have a unique and beautiful cowl after the season is over. We’re also adding some surprises to the kits!
We will start taking kit orders and payments in mid-January, and we must get our first order to our dyer by the end of January for delivery prior to the start of the season. If you think you might be or will be joining in this knit along, please fill out this form so that we can give the dyer a general idea of the number of local team kits and so she can start putting colors together for non-local teams. The form also asks for some basic information so we can better plan the prep classes.
We will have prep classes for the different techniques used in this project in January and February. Look for registration details coming soon. This knit along will have different levels of participation so if you love baseball and you love your team, consider joining no matter what your knitting level!
Spring training will be here soon, and it won't be long until we hear those two magical words PLAY BALL!
