It’s been an incredibly busy week here at NSAD Headquarters! We launched our first class of the new year and hosted two LIVE classes! I’ll tell you more about that in a minute.
Personally I’ve been fighting a cold all week but I’m pushing through to keep bringing you all the great content we publish every week. Today we just finished filming our next class. More on that in a minute too.
There’s lots more great stuff below, so check out our pattern finds and all of this week’s stitches.
Don’t forget to answer our question of the week at the end of the post!
Welcome to Our New Email Subscribers
It’s been about a week since our last update and we had 562 people coming on board the New Stitch a Day email list! We’re very excited to welcome you to the NSAD family!
New Yarn Craft Academy Classes
Our first new class of the year has been a huge success! Here are what some people are already saying about Knitting Styles 102: Continental for Beginners:
That was just a few of the 12 five star reviews for this class!
If you want to become a faster knitter, continental style is a great way to improve your efficiency, so you can spend less time knitting and more time enjoying your knits!
We’re releasing our next class tomorrow, Colorwork Knitting 102: Double Knitting for Beginners. I’m really excited for this class. It’s a very interesting technique that creates a unique fabric unlike anything else in knitting.
Academy members will get early access, but everyone will get a chance to take the class for free during our live broadcast. More info to come on that tomorrow.
If you want to get unlimited access to all our classes, become a member today!
