Nicky Epstein Weekly Knitalong & Giveaway

I recently purchased Nicky Epstien’s book Knitting Block by Block.  I was talking to the owner of my LYS (Knitting Criations in Somers, CT), Pam, and she told me her idea of knitting a block a month.  Since I do not have enough months before Christmas, I thought that I could knit a block a week instead and have a beautiful afghan in no time!  Kara came to my rescue and we are doing this project together as a friendship blanket.  She will knit a square a week with me until we have enough squares.  Then I will do the same for her after Christmas.  Want to join us?   Grab a partner – it will make a great project to work on with a good knitting friend! There IS enough time to start now and have one ready for Christmas!

Nicky’s book is a valuable asset to any knitter wanting to learn different techniques. Tackling them in small blocks makes it a lot easier.

My first block is called The Portal Cable.  I am using Berocco Vintage yarn which is a machine washable blend.

Kara started with the Reversible Hourglass Pattern

With our weekly knit a long now underway we want to encourage all of you to join us!

We are giving away 2 Nicky Epstein Knitting Block by Block books. 

Earlier today in My Pembroke Wrap post I asked the question “Where do you love to knit?”

Just leave us a comment with your name and info telling us where you love to knit!  It is that easy!  We will draw the winners randomly Tuesday.

  1. Love this idea too! It would be a lot of fun to do together with someone. what do you day Mel-dinda??

  2. OK Colleen I will do it with you and it will be a “friendship across the miles” afghan :) I love to knit sitting in my living room in from of a nice hot fire with a cup of coffee or glass of wine next to me (depending on the time of the day)

  3. Sounds GREAT minn- Also forgot to add my place to knit is in my Chair with my Knitting and tatting things in the box next to me. I can even put my feet up with the foot rest if I want! Usually I am listening to some book on tape. Preferably a Jane Austen!

  4. My favorite place to knit is either in the car on a trip…..or just sitting on my couch in the family room. If anyone is looking for a partner for this project let me know.

  5. Sounds like an awesome idea! If I start now maybe I could have one done as a wedding gift for Lydia :) ! Sharon I’m afaid I’m not the partner for you.
