Calling All Baseball Fans!
Spring has begun, and baseball season is here! Are you game to make new friends? On deck to learn new knitting skills? Share the baseball season with other fans? This Knit-A-Long will hit it out of the ballpark!
With Yvonne as your KAL Team Manager, you’ll knit your favorite team’s 2017 season into a tube which you will make into a scarf or cowl at the end of the season. Using your team’s colors, you’ll knit to reflect your team’s wins and losses at home and on the road. Watch the season and colors unfold as we start the tube in these first few weeks of the season and finish at the end of the season.
New for this year’s KAL will be a Gamer Babe Knits pattern for the tube and yarn kits by Luna Purl Yarns in Giants and A’s colors dyed specially for this KAL! You can choose from a 4-color kit or 2-color kit. If you knit for another team or prefer to choose your own colors, we have lots of color choices in the shop. The Luna Purl Yarns kits are only available by pre-order. Starting on Wednesday, March 8 at 10a, please come into the shop or call to place your yarn and pattern order. Orders placed by 5pm on Friday, March 10, will ensure delivery of your kit by the First Pitch meeting (see below). If you miss this deadline, we will have a second pre-order deadline of 5pm on Friday, March 24. Yarn delivery will be on or about Saturday, April 8.
We will have two First Pitch meetings at the shop – one on Saturday, March 25 at 12:30p and one on Thursday, March 30 at 5:30p. It is highly recommended to attend one of these meetings. We will cast on and work the set-up rounds before the start of the season, and you’ll be ready to knit by the time they say “play ball!”
During the season, we will meet to work on our projects and talk baseball. By the end of the season, you’ll have made new friends, created a unique and beautiful accessory and learned new and cool skills along the way. These skills will open a whole new world of knitting possibilities for you.
To sign up, please come into the shop, or call (925) 263-2661 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Yvonne will get back to you with a link to sign up. Once you have signed up, Yvonne will send a follow-up email with more details.
We hope you'll be inspired to join the fun to make a beautiful accessory to show your team loyalty!
