Registration opens Aug. 1 for Knit Fit at Ballard Community Center

Posted by Meghan Walker on July 30th, 2013

The Ballard Community Center hosts a knitting market each year called Knit Fit, and registrations for the event open on August 1. Knit Fit is a free-entry fiber market and takes place Nov. 2-3,  featuring independent, regional producers offering a wide variety of yarns, roving, fiber tools, accessories, many of which are hand-crafted and unavailable in stores.

The weekend will kick off with a presentation from Mary Scott Huff called “Everything I Need to Know, I learned from Knitting.” In addition to the craft supplies, daytime classes are offered throughout the weekend event on a wide variety of knitting techniques, crochet, spinning, and craft photography for all skill levels. Classes offered include Knitting with Vintage Patterns, Recycled Yarn Making, steeking, colorwork, double knitting and more.

There will be a Saturday evening Game Knitting night hosted by Lee Meredith (aka Leethal). “Game Knitting (developed by Lee Meredith) turns the act of knitting into a game played along with a movie, and participants knit small projects during the show, with the pattern emerging based on instances (memorable lines, events, scenery, long-haired grunge rockers, etc.) in the movie,” according to Knit Fit organizer Sasa Foster.

To see a schedule of the classes and to register for the event, click here. Learn more at their website or Facebook page.
