quick knits

March 2017 KALFH Projects

March?! Already? C'mon now... it was just January like last week, right? 


Fiiiiiiiiine... this year can just keep marching forward at it's blistering pace. Thankfully that means new projects to look forward to!

In March I'm doing some traveling. Not only is a girlfriend of mine getting married in Cancun (!!! I know! I've never been and I'm so excited) but it's my Mum's 60th birthday so back home to Canadia I go! So my March projects are all about the quick knits - Aran or Bulky weight projects that are sure to become wardrobe staples!


If you're in the Portland/Beaverton, OR area, you can always come take these classes in person with me at Nitro Knitters
