Are you ready for the FOX PAWS KAL?

Hello Knitters!

Have you seen Xandy Peters‘ fantastic Fox Paws design? It’s is all over my friends feed on¬†Ravelry, turning heads and challenging even the esteemed Yarn Harlot¬†who likens it to “Feather and Fan¬†on smack”. ¬†Knitters are rising to the challenge. I saw a gorgeous version worn by Debie Frable at Serial Knitters, my LYS and knew I couldn’t resist.

I am gearing up to lead a Fox Paws Knitalong Р#foxpawsKAL. Are you in?  Two options:

  • There will be an in-person workshop series held at Serial Knitters yarn shop in Kirkland, WA. For those of you who want to come in person for the camaraderie and hands-on support, register by calling or popping in to the shop. Three two-hour sessions will be offered at the shop for the bargain price of $75.
  • For those of you sprinkled far and wide, join us virtually at the Serial Knitters forum on Ravelry. This option is open to everyone and is free.

Here’s the {k}nitty gritty:
