Somehow, in what feels like the blink of an eye, April is behind us and May is here. And a week in too! April days were definitely full with time spent adjusting to new normals and working to stay healthy and well throughout these changes. There was so much inspiration found in photos across social media, and the fun of joining in on certain trends (sourdough banana bread for the win!) helped in staying connected despite being apart. With our SOS online forums, social media, vlog and blog, our hope is that through these spaces we can continue to offer support and inspiration for fellow makers, and we look forward to more making together in the months ahead!
New Course Now Available // Knit Your First Sweater
Sweater knitting can be a daunting task as there seems to be so many steps and so many places where it can all go wrong. But, just like any life challenge, if you break the large task into small manageable ones, you can start knitting sweaters like a pro! In our latest course release, Tabetha Hedrick walks you through the entire process of knitting your first sweater. From reading the pattern and swatching, to knitting through finishing, Tabetha is going to be with you the entire way!
We’ll work through the included pattern, Flannery, a raglan sweater, together, and by the time we’re done, you’ll learn all the special tips and tricks needed to make just about any sweater you can dream up.
Click here to learn more in our Knit Your First Sweater Course! For any questions, comments or chat about this course, they can be shared with Tabetha and fellow SOS students in the School of SweetGeorgia community forums.
