July:  Christmas in July Ornament KAL!

 Get a jump on your holiday crafting with this month’s ornament KAL!  We’ve made a kit of 6 different ornaments: A cottage, Christmas tree, mitten, hat, mini-sweater and acorn.  The kit contains all materials to make each ornament (and 2 each of the hat and acorn), including patterns, yarns and hangers.  You just need #3 dpns or a circular for using the magic loop technique for knitting in the round.   We hope you’ll join us each Thursday evening in July beginning 7/6 and continuing 7/13, 7/20 & 7/27.  If you cannot participate in the KAL on Thursday nights, the ornament kit is available for purchase.
