International Year of the Scarf Update
The International Year of the Scarf will soon be launched. If you act soon, you can still sign up at the discounted rate of $60.00 CAD. After 04 January, the annual membership will be $75.00 CAD.
I am very excited about the international aspect of this knitting club. There are members from many different parts of the world, as well as the U.S. and Canada. You can keep track of the countries and the states of the US and the provinces of Canada on the IYS page which I keep updated.
Within the next few days, I will be sending out the first scarf pattern. Until I send out the pattern for each month, the design and the country it represents remains a mystery.
What I can tell you is that each month will be different--quite different--from the other months and that there will be a variety of knitting styles represented. Many of them will not be typical of my other design work. So you can expect some surprises.
For those who want to know what they are buying: I will be posting the patterns for individual sale later in the month. But they will be at their regular retail prices.
Another advantage of the International Year of the Scarf Club is that any instructional tutorials associated with each month's pattern will be available free to club members.
I am looking forward to an interesting, international year.
I wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year, filled with knitting projects that inspire and delight.
