You know I can’t go a whole month without hosting a knitting event! The Sweatshop of Love has been exclusively Chicago based since 2006. Exclusively Chicago based until now, that is!

The Sweatshop of Love NYC Meet Ups:

Knitting in the Bar

Chicago Sweatshoppers have been known to knit in bars, and now that silliness is coming to Floyd NY. Please join me Thursday, August 12th at 7pm at Floyd NY – 131 Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn – with knitting needles in hand!

From experience, bring an easy project. After a couple beers those stitches start looking WEIRD.

Knitting in the Park

Picnic knitting is a blast! Can you think of anything sweeter than sipping lemonade in the sunshine while knitting away? Swing by McCarren Park in Brooklyn Saturday, August 28th at 2pm with a blanket and your latest project for some outdoor knitting and sunbathing. Exact location to come!


Both of these events will be opportunities for you to come with your knitting questions; with patterns you need help reading, with techniques you can’t figure out, with projects you are stuck on.

Haven’t knit in years? We’ll get you started again! Knitting expert? Come and make some new knitting friends!

Sound like fun? It will be! Email me at allyson [at] thesweatshopoflove [dot] com to get on my mailing list. Forward this to people you think would be interested. Email me if you are planning on coming or if you’ve got any questions.

I can’t wait to knit with you!
