Sweater Club 2024 - Feb/March via ZOOM - Elizabeth Doherty!



Afraid to tackle that sweater alone?  We have the answer:  Sweater Club!  2 months of community, 4 gatherings on ZOOM, 1 sweater, lots of fun lead by Sandi Avila, an amazing sweater knitter!!   If you've been following us on Facebook or in our Newsletter you have heard about Sweater Club- this is your opportunity to join!   

Our March and April designer is Elizabeth Doherty aka Blue Bee Studio on Ravelry.

This designer has a variety of sweaters to choose from for all seasons.  She loves to work with different weights of yarns and design structures of a sweater and plenty of texture.

This is a KAL, not a class delivered via Zoom.  Sweater club meets from 6-8 eastern, 5-7 central, 4-6 mountain and 3-5 pacific on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month.  Meetings are not recorded.

There is no formal instruction.  Sandi Avila guides the group and everyone learns together.  Club members
 
are responsible for obtaining their pattern in advance of our meetings and obtaining materials based on the pattern for each of the sweaters.  
Yarn must be purchased at Longmont Yarn Shoppe. Sweater Club Participants enjoy a 10% materials discount using code SWEATERCLUB10  

Homework – Bring a 4x4 blocked swatch to our first gathering of the yarn you  have chosen.  If you are new to sweater making, please contact Sandi via email (sandiavila1022@gmail.com) for a quick consult prior to the first meeting and tips on fitting your sweater as well as key measurements. 

This year we are choosing designers for you but you get to pick the sweater you would like to do from that designer.  If you need assistance with yarn choices or have questions about your pattern please reach out to the staff at Longmont Yarn Shoppe. 

Your zoom link will be sent the evening before the KAL. If you do not see it please check your spam filter!

Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details: Advanced beginner, ability to knit, purl, increase and decrease. Have completed several projects in the round, but can be novice at sweater patterns.
Instructor: Sandi Avila
Instructor Bio: I was born in Greenwich, Connecticut and moved to Boulder in 1975 and have never ventured too far from here. I enjoy living where you can appreciate the outdoors year-round and knit in every season. During a month-long visit, my German grandmother taught me to knit, that was 40+ years ago. I have been knitting non-stop ever since, I always have something brewing on the needles. I continued my journey in knitting and found my true passion was knitting sweaters. I really enjoy the evolution of a sweater more than any other project. I am excited to be an instructor as I love to share my passion with others and help them dispel the fear of a fitted garment. As an added bonus, I found a husband who encourages my knitting habit; he ventures with me to knit shops when we are traveling, its always on the itinerary. It was in the last 10 years that I found my knitting clan at Longmont Yarn Shoppe and love the sharing, encouragement and support we bring to each other. It is a wonderful community to be a part of.
