A New Challenge for a New Year

In just two days we’ll be ringing in 2012!  At Knit One we’re excited about the possibilities that a new year has to offer.  January 1 always seems to bring fresh perspective and a clean slate.  Do you have any resolutions for 2012?

If not, we’ve got one for you.  And if so, well, we’d like to add one to your list!

This year, try tapping into your creative side by designing your own pattern.  If you’ve already designed patterns, try something new or more intricate!  If you’re a beginner – get excited about making something totally your own.  Don’t forget – you can always stop into the shop to ask for advice!

As always, if you take us up on this challenge, submit your finished project/s to us by email and we’ll feature your work.  Good luck!!  We can’t wait to see all your lovely designs.
