Colder than normal May weather has me still looking at sweater projects and pondering what to make next. Starting a sweater in early summer, but planning to finish it when crisp Fall air arrives, has always appealed to me. In the meantime, I've been very busy adjusting Countrywool to meet our new on-line normal.
It looks like the safest way to gather together to knit, is virtually.
Many have figured out how to use ZOOM to make that happen,
and we have been successfully meeting online for not one,
but TWO weekly
Knit Nites!
When weather is rainy, Knitting in the Afternoon appears as well.
Our chit chat about knitting and everything else has been a comfort in our socially distanced way of life.
Please feel free to ask questions about how to be with us on Zoom.
We are all in this together and there is LOTS of support available to help you.

But, I am missing spinning camaraderie as well,
so look for a Virtual Spin-A-Long once we hit June.
Please come and join us. All the details are here.

Knit-A-Longs - the new community knitting normal
We check in on Ravelry through COUNTRYWOOLERS,
creating project pages to share (this is so much fun, right?!?)
and meet together once a week on ZOOM to share and ask questions/chat

 ...for May

New Knitter? Need specific help?

I am doing all teaching online through Zoom for the foreseeable future.
1. There will be a basic LEARN TO KNIT class that starts and runs for 4 weeks in June.  There's a kit including our favorite tools and yarn available as well, and you can make arrangements to have that shipped to you, or it is available at the shop. (see the new One Person Shopping arrangements on our home page).
2. For those who have a pattern/project that has stymied them, consider pulling me into the issue so together we can figure it out. I'd love to help!
3. I am ALWAYS open to new ideas for a group Knit-A-Long!!!!

New Pattern!
Just published online... Sticks and Slants Socks are here!
Warm weather is a GREAT time for sock projects.
We love these knit with Durasport and Bearfoot!
