Cozy Memories Blanket Knit Along

Do you have mini skeins of fingering weight yarn or leftovers from sock knitting? Beginning May 3, 2016, from 1:00 to 3:00, we'll be offering a free KAL every Wednesday for anybody interested in knitting along with us. This mitered square blanket uses around 5 grams of fingering weight sock yarn per square. The Cozy Memories blanket KAL is free but we ask that you register so we know how many people to expect. We will have opportunities for you to purchase and swap mini skeins as you build your one-of-a-kind blanket (search the #cozymemoriesblanket tag on Instagram for lots of eye candy and inspiration). Please call the shop to register for the KAL.

Kemper Wray's Coziest Memory in progress.

The recommended pattern is Kemper Wray's free pattern: The Coziest Memory. However -- you are free to use any pattern you choose! Please download and print your pattern prior to our first meeting. Details and strategies for starting a memory blanket can be found here: The Coziest Memory Blanket Recipe.

A few months ago, I discovered this YouTube video by podcaster Molly of Homespun House, that inspired me to start this project; it's not for everybody, but I know that many of you have already started blankets of your own and would love to join others who are working on this project.

Can we join the kal even if we can't make meetings until summer? This sounds fun.

Yes! We'd love that - we'll have a Ravelry group set up soon and you can post photos and progress there until you can join us.
