January 2012 – 12 in 12

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Well, the results are in…
.
You all have spoken loud and clear and the January 2012 sweater is Bedford!  Designed by Michele Wang for Brooklyn Tweed’s BT Fall 11 Collection, this sweater is the perfect winter partner.  Just like your favorite sweatshirt!
.

.
I am going to knit this sweater out of a new yarn from Cascade called Cloud.  I think I am even going to do the sweatshirt grey color.
.
The sweater would be awesome out of any great worsted yarn…Dream in Color Classy, Cascade 220 SW, Berocco Vintage or Wooly Worsted.  I suggest coming in soon for the best yarn choices.  This one is going to be popular.
.
This would be a great first sweater for those of you unsure.  Knit from the bottom up in the round…perfect!  You can totally do this!  We’ll be here every step of the way to help.
.
You remember the deal right?  If you choose to knit Bedford, you’ll get 20% off the materials to make it.  And as if that isn’t enough.  If you start the sweater on or after January 1st, finish the sweater AND bring it in to us before January 31st, you’ll get $20 in shop credit.
.

A few changes to the Sweater 12 in 12 deal this year.  The shop credit is $20 and you can only use the credit on regular priced items.  Oh and we are participating in Ravelry’s in store pattern program, so you can buy the pattern from us (at the 20% off) and it’ll be downloaded right to your Ravelry library!  We LOVE that!
.
We’ll
be revealing the rest of the 12 sweaters AND the 12 socks too, at our 12 in 12 party on December 29th.  If you can’t make it to the party look for a newsletter revealing all 12 sweaters and socks in your inbox on New Years Eve.
.
We look forward to another fun year of sweater (and sock) knitting!
.
By the way, if you were hoping for True North or Zephyr this year, you won’t be disappointed.  You’ll just have to wait a few months:)  But don’t tell anyone, it’s a surprise!

January 2012 – 12 in 12 Socks

Friday, December 16th, 2011

So, we’re adding a little more fun to our year.  12 socks too!
.
We thought we’d start out with a sock everyone can manage, Hermoine’s Everyday Socks, designed by Erica Lueder.  It is a free Ravelry download, so you might as well download it and check it out:)
.
.
Here is the sock deal.
.
Just like the 12 in 12 sweaters, you’ll get 20% off the materials to make this sock.  Along with that, if you start the socks on or after January 1st, finish the pair of socks and bring them in to us before we close on January 31st, you’ll get a coupon for 20% off another purchase.  Fun huh?
.
The rest of the socks will be revealed at our 12 in 12 party on December 29th.  We’d love to see you there!
