Knit Winter Olympics will be starting on February 12th. We found a great kit that many of us will be doing. I've left the sweater on the mannequin for you to share. We will be starting our Winter Knitting Olympics at the Olympic Opening Ceremony on February 12th from 6-8pm. Anyone who chooses to attempt the Jacket during the Olympic event will be entered into the "Gold" category for the Olympics. There will be several prizes for each medal level, and one of the prizes for the Gold medal will be a $100.00 gift certificate for Knitique.

The details on the sweater: This is being kitted up with 100% Sport-weight Alpaca. The yarn is held double-stranded on a larger needle, making this an easy to finish project. During the Olympics we will have training sessions almost every day to help keep our knitting athletes motivated. This jacket comes as a kit with all yarn needed, gorgeous handcrafted ceramic buttons to match (which they choose), and the pattern. There are over 65 gorgeous colors to choose from.

We will be placing our order on February 1st. If you prepay in full you will receive a 10% discount on the kits.

Keep the spirit alive, and join us in our 2nd annual Knitting Olympics.

To enter the Knitting Olympics all yarn must be purchased at Knitique. The different medal levels are as follows:
