Hola El Stitch y Bitch!

July is hot hot hot… what a great time to be outdoors for some knitting al aire libre. July has lots of great events, here are just a few.

Constructor Craft Fair is this Saturday, July 9th in Berwyn. This is Constructor’s fourth year and it gets better every time. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us! A few of us are meeting at noon; feel free to bring your current projects and join us for some beer, local handmade crafts and good summer times. The craft fair is at Fitzgerald’s: 6615 W. Roosevelt Rd., Berwyn, IL from 10am-6pm. Hope to see you there!

Our next knitting circle will meet at Cobalt Studio’s//Embedded// Block Party on July 16th! Adriana and Antonio are celebrating the studio’s one year anniversary with a fun filled day of art sales and raffles, free market, musica and bbq! Let’s meet from 3pm-6pm for some on sight knitting and yarn bombing. If you need extra yarn, I have plenty! The block party is on 21st St. and Damen, extending down to Wolocott.

We want to hear from all our fabulous beginners… Please join us at our next meeting, share your new projects or pick up a new pattern. Our next knitting circle will be on July 27th at Efebina’s Cafe: 1640 S. Blue Island from 7-9pm.

Have a great one!


Looks like the cold weather is here to stay and that only means that we need to warm up some trees in this city! Is anyone in the mood for some knit graffiti? If you’re up for the challenge stop by Efebina’s Cafe (1640 S Blue Island Ave) on Wednesday, December 8th at 7pm. We’ll have our usual knitting circle and venture out to 18th St. afterwards to install our swatches. You have a little more than a week to create a colorful yarn bomb (and maybe we’ll throw in a prize for the best one)! If you need some inspiration I took some quick measurements (yes I really did); skinny trees/poles are about 7.5-8in. wide, while the larger trees are aprox. 20-24in.

Happy stitching!
