Vitamin D knit-along and Sweet Georgia Yarn !!

Hi Everyone,

As a lot of you might remember, a couple of months ago I sent out an e-mail about an upcoming knit-along and a pre order for Sweet Georgia yarn.

Well the yarn is here,and it is beautiful!! So for anyone who pre ordered, I have your yarn. If anyone else is interested in doing the knit-along, there are a few extra colours you could choose from,and I do have some Malabrigo sock yarn that would work also.

We will be starting "Vitamin D" on Wed. June 5th from 1PM until 3 PM. For anyone who has not attended a knit-along before here is how it works. This is not a class as such, we will all be working on this sweater together and helping each other along the way, everyone works at their own speed. There is no charge to attend, but you are expected to buy the yarn here. The pattern is one I can purchase for you from Ravelry, and you will receive an e-mail with the link to the PDF, or if you don’t have a printer I can print a copy out for you. Here is a link to the pattern for you to take a look at it.
I also have one knit up in the store that one of my customers kindly lent to me for you to see, (I have not, as of yet, knit this sweater myself).

So, if you are interested in joining us please let me know.
