Knit the Almanac

Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac

“…I can knit. I knit all year, day in, day out. It is my passion, and I rarely knit the same thing twice the same way. Here, then, is a knitter’s almanac; a monthly record of the changing year in the light of my amiable craft.”
– Elizabeth Zimmerman, Knitter’s Almanac

And so begins Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitter’s Almanac. The Almanac contains patterns for pullovers, cardigans, blankets, mittens, hats, socks, shawls and more. At the beginning of every year there’s talk of knitting the almanac, but this is the first year that someone – in this case Elizabeth – stepped forward and decided to do it. Kathy H. joined in, so we’ve made it an official event.

Join us on the 4th Thursday of every month from 6 to 8 p.m. and knit the almanac. Start with any month you like and knit whichever projects you want. This is not a class, just a fun way to share and to encourage one another.

We hope you’ll join us!

  1. Had a nice time last night. Hope to have my Three Cornered hat ready for show and tell next month.

  2. Iam not able to view the entire instructions. For example, as I am typing, the words “I am n” are not showing up on this screen. What would you suggest? Thank you!

  3. I’m not sure which instructions you’re trying to see, Marilyn, but if you let me know I can email them to you.
