Time for Sweater Knitting?

Join us for our first Knit/Crochet A Long of the new year! January is a popular sweater-knitting month, so we decided to make it into a K/CAL. Would you like to join us?

I’ve rounded up some beautiful options, and linked to even more at the bottom. Tomorrow’s blog post includes information on getting points for our Winter Semester of Knights of the Loopy Table. Typically we’d start that with yarn purchases beginning on January 1, but since I’m doing this KAL blog today and I know a lot of you are going to want to get your yarn now, we’re counting 12/31/18 purchases/starts for Winter Semester Knights. 🙂

Do you have other fun sweater patterns that you’d like to share? Leave a comment below and let us know what they are.

Book Giveaway

Here are the last two books in our four month long Monday Book Giveaways! Leave a comment to enter. Tell us what the weather is like in your neck of the woods. It’s 14 degrees and snowing here today. Perfect sweater weather!


  1. I wish it were a little more sweater-y here in Illinois – so far winter has been wet, muddy, and a little on the warm side. Not that I mind temps above freezing, but I’d like a little snow instead of months of dreary gray muddiness!

  2. Double sweater weather here= 12 degrees and snowing. The Cold Brew cowl kept me cozy on my pm errands.

    I’d like the ‘Best of …” book (I have the other one!)

  3. Yup! Snowing here and my thermometer says 13 degrees! Not a surprise as I am in Fort Collins too! No preference if I win!

  4. It’s currently 41F here but tomorrow is going to be 55F which sounds warm compared to what we usually have here. There is a possibility of snow later in the week.
    The Best of Knitscene would be my first choice:)

  5. It’s been 80 here; so happy I moved to Florida this year. I just bought a winter jacket for just-in-case, so I think that’s why it’s been warmer than usual for the time of year, which suits me fine!

  6. I’m in Los Angeles and get got to a balmy 66 today, which is very nice since I just got home from Page, AZ where it was 12! I’d love On the Road.

  7. What a great idea! However since I was just there on Friday (12/28) and purchased a sweater quantity I won’t able to do it. Though I really wish it could count.

  8. 9 degrees and getting colder here in southeast Idaho. Plenty of snow on the ground, but it all fell while we were out of town for Christmas.

  9. Has 2 in of rain yesterday and temps in the 40’s. Sweater weather for me is temps in the 50’s. Would enjoy Knitting on the Road.

  10. Warm cloudy day, the temp is 55. It will climb to 61 with a bit of wind. Quiet nice really for the first day of the new year. Happy New Year!

  11. So much inspiration with all the colorwork sweaters! I’m getting up the courage to try one of those.
    Happy New Year, Sheri; my daughter is moving to Denver so I just might have to stop in to see you now and then!

  12. Good grief. It is all of 4 degrees and snowy today. I really need a sweater.
    I might concentrate on finishing the one one the needles, that I got distracted from in Early November.

  13. We received 2inches of snow yesterday and it’s still overcast and cold here in Iowa. I would love the Knitting on the road book. I do a lot of knitting in the car and on planes.

  14. Brrr. It’s cold where you are! I’m in Idaho where it’s 31 right now. I would like the Knitting on the Road if I win. Thank you and Happy New Year to you all!

  15. It is in the 60s here and raining in North Alabama. We got about 10″ in December (which felt continuous) and looks like more rain in January. Everything outside is wet. Whenever it rains I get chilled even if I am not outside goose bumps and all, I just cannot get warm. Sweater knitting is just the thing for a wet January.

    Happy note … no shoveling … yet it all runs away by itself. I already own Knitting on the Road and use it! I would like the KnitScene book if selected.
