Wow, it's been busy around here lately! Not least of all we've been working out our Fall and Winter schedule for classes, workshops and special events. This year is going to be really fun. We've added all sorts of "little extras" to the venue. The current list of activities will be posted in the next week as there are still some small tweaks to take care of.
Today, however, I am able to officially invite you to join in our upcoming knitting circle where you might choose to knit Sally Melville's Einstein Coat along with us. All of the girls in the shop, including myself are game. We're perusing the shelves and trying to decide on which yarn, colour, texture will be employed in the making of our own special coat. Isn't the planning always the best part of any project?

So, here's the whole picture. It speaks to those who are coming in to "physically" join the group and who enjoy London-Wul as their LYS however I'd like to encourage anyone who wants to "virtually" knit along with us to jump right in. Send us your messages and photos. Perhaps your blog address where you are logging your progress? You'll note that we have given loads of time for the preparation and planning stages of this project. We'll commence to stitch immediately following the craziness of December. You'll have lots of time to visit your LYS or order the PERFECT supplies and begin knitting FOR YOURSELF come January.

Knitters Drop In
(first Sunday of every Month Oct-May 2-5 pm)

The perfect opportunity to get some assistance with those small problems that are holding back your project, help others or just sit, knit and chat awhile.

…Also check out our monthly drop–in Demos where you'll learn new tips and tricks with each visit.

Knit-a-Long Project – The Einstein Coat

The Einstein Coat is so named because you feel like a ‘genius’ when it is done.
The pattern is from Canadian author Sally Melville’s book “The Knitting Experience –Book 1-The Knit Stitch”. A definite ‘go to’ resource book which contains many terrific patterns using only the garter stitch.

Join us one Sunday each month as we knit our coat – sharing stories, tips, and techniques.

Experience: Very Easy; Lots of Knitting; minimal finishing

No instruction fee - preparations begin now for a Jan 7 start . Come early to purchase Book with pattern and your choice of yarn available at London-Wul.
