Celestarium Knit-a-Long:  Free to join – 10% discount on materials purchased in store for KAL

Knit-a-LongCelestarium is an accurate view of the night sky from the North Pole in the form of a pi shawl. It is the sister shawl to Southern Skies. Eyelets and beads are used to represent the stars. The center bead represents Polaris.

The first bead is prestrung, the rest are attached using a small crochet hook. The edge of the shawl is a knitted on garter stitch border. To help keep track of the star placement, stitch markers are placed every 72 stitches once the shawl reaches above 72 stitches. There will always be 72 stitches in between markers. No stitch markers have be moved around to accommodate star placement. The pattern includes a star chart that shows what constellations have been knitted.
Finished measurements:
46” / 117 cm diameter

 

Materials Needed

  • Size 4 US (3.5 mm) needles in preferred style for small circumference knitting in the round.
  • Circular needle 24″/60 cm long
  • Circular needle 40″/100 cm long  Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct guage.  Gauge is 22 stitches and 28 rows = 4″/10 cm in stockinette stitch.  Getting the exact gauge is not critical.  It is more important to get the row gauge than the stitch gauge.  To save time and to ensure accurate sizing, check gauge.  * One of our wonderful customers has taken the time to identify all of the stars in the constellations in the night sky and determine their associated Harvard Spectral Classification – that means she’s identified the colors of all of the stars on the schematic for the Celestarium.
  • 0.75 mm crochet hook for beading
  • 8 stitch markers
  • 370 size 6/0 silver-lined crystal seed beads – we will have beads available to purchase in the store for the KAL in several colors.

Toe Up Afterthought Heel Socks:  3 sessions – 2 hours each

Aftherthought socksThis is one of my favorite ways to knit a sock! It starts at the toe so it’s easy to knit a sock for any sized foot, it’s a simple tube sock so it can be a quick knit, and it’s easily customized. This is a great technique to use with striping sock yarns because the afterthought heel technique preserves the striping pattern on the body your sock. You can easily add in reinforcing thread to toughen those heels and they are easily replaceable if you wear through your heels.
