Home and Away Knit-A-Long: Lesley

Out of stock


March 1st–March 31st, 2018

February 8th-February 18th: Order the yarn, needles and a copy of the book now through February 18th. Everything will arrive in the store (or straight to your doorstep!) with plenty of time for you to cast on by March 1st. When you’re done, we’ll expect to see finished shots of you and your sweater! Email us at thebuzz@woolandhoney.com, use #woolandhoney on Instagram or post on our Facebook page.

Help every Thursday: We’ll be devoting our Thursday evening Open Knitting to the Lesley KAL–March 1st-March 31st–we’ll be here to help you if you get in a rut or need help navigating the pattern, but primarily it’ll be a chance for us to motivate each other.

15% Discount: the book, the needles AND the yarn. We’ll be knitting ours with our custom colorways of Plucky Knitter Snug, an aran weight wool yarn that’s a sumptuous blend of Merino wool, cashmere and royal alpaca.

Prizes: Every single participant who completes their sweater will receive a ‘Tacit’ fingerless mitts kit pictured below (the pattern and one skein of Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering in Port Oneida–a $38 value) AND every single participant who completes their sweater will be entered in a drawing to win a $50 gift certificate to Wool & Honey, to use in-house or online.

No need to use a coupon code at checkout–the discount is already applied.

With a graceful neck fashioned with short rows, Lesley lends itself well to a closer fit. Knitted in an aran weight yarn, it’s a comfortable pullover suitable for both indoor and outdoor adventures.

The sweater can be knit in pieces and seamed OR seamlessly in the round–instructions are given for both.

Snug is a gorgeous, springy aran weight yarn with the most beautiful halo and amazing depth of color. The Plucky Knitter Leelanau Palette is a series that takes its cues from the natural beauty of Pure Michigan. These colors are inspired by some of our favorite Northern Michigan landmarks and we’re thrilled with the way Sarah brought them to life in yarn form. As with all Plucky Knitter yarns, this colorway is available for a limited time only and is exclusive to Wool & Honey.
