Join us for the KITH KAL!
Knitting in the Heartland is hosting a knit-a-long project for our conference. Kansas City native and nationally recognized designer/ instructor, Cheryl Murray, has created a special KAL design for us: The City of Fountains Scarf/Wrap
Fountains are everywhere in Kansas City, and this project salutes the integral role they play in the city's identity. A combination of easy stitch patterns represents the jets spraying from their stone basins, sending water droplets high in the air. The project is worked flat in two pieces from the bottom edges to the center back where they are joined with Kitchener stitch or a 3-needle bind off. The pattern is written in two sizes to produce a generous scarf or a larger wrap. Knit this in a cool, watery shade of hand-dyed yarn. Refreshing!
We have collaborated with Kansas City indie dyer, Christine Long Derks of Treasure Goddess Yarns, to offer an
exclusive colorway for this project from her Treasured Toes Sock Yarn.
The pre-ordered kits have been delivered! If you missed out, they are available on the Treasure Goddess Yarns website, supplies are limited! If you want to knit-a-long with your own yarn, the pattern can be found here.
Scarf kit includes 1 pattern + 1 skein of Treasured Toes Sock Yarn*.
Wrap kit includes 1 pattern + 2 skeins of Treasured Toes Sock Yarn*.
*The colorway for the skein is City of Fountains.
Presenting Project Handwork

KITH 2020 STITCH MARKER EXCHANGE
Join the fun of exchanging stitch markers with old and new friends! The KITH 2020 Stitch Marker Exchange is an ongoing activity that will be taking place throughout the conference. There will be designated swapping areas or feel free to make new friends by approaching someone with the designated sticker indicating they are a “Swapper.”
Bring some stitch markers to share. Buy them or make your own from your collection of charms and beads following online tutorials. It doesn’t take much effort; just bring what you have time for and can afford, and especially, those that you like. You will go home with a very unique collection as a memento of your time spent at KITH.
