The pattern includes three different versions each with different rib patterns and
yarn weights. Sizes range from shoulder warmer to neck warmer. It is worked in the
round on circular needles. Corrugated ribbing is used, where two different colored
yarns are stranded across each round. A gauge swatch is recommended to ensure you
get the fit you desire.
Participants should bring a printed copy of pattern to first session. We can print
a copy for participants for a nominal fee.
There is no charge to participate, however participants need to purchase supplies at GPY.
Your support allows us to continue to offer free KALs.

A good book can help pass the time. A great book transports its reader directly into
the story. With Lit Knits, you can wear your favorite story. Relive your favorite
books and discover a few you might have missed along the way. From 20,000 Leagues
Under The Sea to Black Beauty, each of the 10 knit designs brings a bit of the story
out of the book and into daily living.
Author and designer, Audry Nicklin learned to knit in 2005 and began tinkering with
designs shortly after. In early 2011 she began offering her patterns for sale.
Audry's work has been seen in Twist Collective as well as in her own Bear Ears
pattern line. And GPY has kits available to make Audry's popular Giraffe hat at using
popular GPY yarns.
Audry will be at GPY with copies of Lit Knits available for sale and she will of
course autograph your copy of the book if you choose. All of the garments in the book
will be on display with complimentary GPY yarns. Receive 10% off yarns to make any of
Audry's Lit Knit designs on December 7th.
Call us at 408-620-1042 or e-mail us at: yarn (at) greenplanetyarn.com that you will
be joining us for this meet and greet with our very own, Audry, a talented local
designer, author and GPY customer.
While our center table is available anytime for customers to work on
their projects and browse our books and patterns, we are open an additional
hour on Fridays for socializing with like-minded fiber enthusiasts. You
can make a night of it and have dinner at one of the restaurants in our
shopping center and within walking distance.

GPY Show & Tells are back. Now that we are settled in our new digs, we've scheduled
our popular Show & Tells.
Join us and share your latest creations with other yarnees and join a lively discussion
about designers, new fibers and fun blogs to follow, etc. You are invited to share any
items recently knitted or crocheted by you with the group, and you will receive one
raffle ticket for each garment made with GPY yarn, and of course not previously shared.
We offer great raffle prizes for the Chinese Style auction whereby you choose which
prizes you want your raffle ticket(s) to go towards. Past Raffle prizes won by Show and
Tell attendees have included an electric ball winder, circular bamboo knitting needle set,
sweater quantities of yarn, kits, etc.
There is no charge to participate, however, we encourage you to sign up since space is
limited. If you are interested in participating, e-mail us at: yarn (at) greenplanetyarn.com or call 408-620-1042.
These regular meet-ups are hosted by a GPY staffer and participants join in to make
the same project together. GPY Clubs offer great opportunities to learn from each
other and share and exchange ideas, and interesting conversation. There is not a
charge to participate, we just ask that you support GPY by purchasing the Club project
yarn here. We recommend that participants have advanced beginner skills to join the clubs.
Participants who would rather not work on the same project together, but are interested
in a social knitting and crocheting venue, then come by any time during regular hours
when our large main antique table is always open for socializing.
Alternate Saturdays, 5:00 pm
