A while back, I was talking sheep with Diana, a fellow knitter and shepherd. She described a long unfinished sweater and she was stuck because she didn’t know how to do the three-needle bind-off. (If you don’t either, watch this!)
That broke my heart – this beautiful sweater that no one gets to wear because of a technique?
We can fix that.
We can teach you how to do these things.
We can help you finish that beautiful sweater – or hat or mittens or scarf or shawl – that you have worked so hard to make and deserve to wear.
And we can do this together.
But Erin, you’re in NY and I’m in … California or Australia or Israel or Switzerland or Minnesota… (Yes, we have members there and a lot of other places too!)
We’ve got that covered.
Our Knitting Community values learning above all else, which means we approach each project with curiosity, a ‘how does this work?’ attitude, and the grace patience to build our knitting toolbox. We’ve moved away from social media so that we can minimize the distraction and focus on what we’re here to learn!
Pop on over to read our FAQs about how The Flock (that’s what we call it) works!
Each month we pick a different project to learn or practice a technique. Join in as your spirit and schedule permit – we don’t have any requirements other than three simple rules:
1) be good to each other, and yourself
2) You can’t say the word can’t unless you say the word ‘yet’ after it
3) Behind isn’t a status, it’s only something you sit on.
Each day of the Knitalong, we’ll post a goal for the day. Sometimes it’s specific pattern instruction (rounds 1-5), sometimes it’s a length of time (find yourself 15 minutes to knit), or whatever seems fun that day (including a rest or catch-up day). As techniques are introduced, we show you what you need to know in video with THE technique – no hunting through endless choices on YouTube. That means you have less time searching, waaaaay less frustration, and more time to knit.
These Knitalongs are for YOU, so knit along at your own pace. Speed up if you get a chunk of time or long car ride, slow down if life gets too busy.
Ask questions. Give answers. Provide encouragement. Find success.
See you there!
