March break camp at LadeeBee is focused on fostering confidence, building skills and nurturing interests in arts and crafts.

19 Knitting, Crocheting, and Crafting Days 'Til Christmas

Here is a quick gift knitted up in Illimani Yarn's Cadena I. This is a super bulky yarn with a chain ply construction, consisting of 71.5% baby alpaca and 28.5% royal merino. You can customize the size and cost of your project based on the number of skeins you use. I chose to go all out and used five skeins for the project shown. $21/skein = $105 total project cost. This is worked on a 10mm knitting needle.

Cast on 32sts
Row 1: slip 1, (yo, k2tog) repeat to one stitch before end, k1
Repeat this row until desired length is reached and bind off. Sew together bind off and cast on edge. Weave in ends. 

You can also follow a similar pattern on Illimani's website

Make 2015 the year of the sock! Join LadeeBee's sock club today and look forward to a year of surprise sock kits and meet ups with other sock knitters. Challenge yourself to knit 6 pairs of uniquely designed socks in a year. 

How it works:

You can sign up for 6 months (3 sock kits + 3 meet-ups) or 12 months (6 sock kits + 6 meet ups).
There are 8 weeks between kit pick up and our meet ups to give you plenty of time to work on your pair of socks. When you attend the meet-up we will give you the next kit, or pick up on the first weekend of the following month. I'll be delivering email reminders to club members that will include tips for knitting your sock kit.
