Oh Say Can You See
 

The winter games are just around the corner and we've been training hard with Lorna's Laces and designer Lara Smoot (Remember our Shark Bite II KAL?!) to get ready for this year's events on February 9th with our Speckles and Stripes Sock Knit-Along. In this interactive KAL, you'll knit along with us and our USA athletes! As they add medals to their stash, we'll add faux cables to our socks, so that by the night of the Closing Ceremony, you'll have a knitted record of the number of U.S. medals won!

 

Olympia Sock Kits
(Ships Late January)

Each kit contains 1 hank of speckled Shepherd Sock and 2 staccatos (1 red and 1 blue), along with a baggie of red and blue plastic stitch markers! After procuring your kit, head to Ravelry to purchase the pattern!

This pattern is easy enough for the advanced-beginner knitter so we'll leave the figure 8's and Fair Isle to the pros!

Blast from the Past!

We certainly have a penchant for winter sports! In 2016, to help promote the movie Eddie the Eagle, we created "E" hats, yarn-bombed Park City during Sundance, and teamed up with the producers to teach Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton how to knit (not all heroes knit capes!).

Check out the video below!

The Fabulous Feast
of Wild Men

Men and knitting - what a gold medal combination! According to the interweb, January 12th is "The Feast of Wild Men Day" and in order to celebrate we highlighted some of our favorite male knitters and their work. Head over to the blog to read up! (Unfortunately, Hugh and Taron didn't make the list... but another A-List celeb did!)

Little Hats, Big Hearts
 

Like we said earlier, not all heroes knit capes - some knit caps! The American Heart Association is seeking volunteers to knit and crochet red hats for babies born in February. The Little Hats, Big Hearts Program raises awareness about congenital heart defects that affect 40,000 newborns per year.

 

Eddie's Dream Hat

Interested in being a heart healthy cheerleader? Our Eddie's Dream Hat pattern (in knit and crochet!) is free and would look great made in solid red!

Here are a few yarn ideas to get you started:
