Hi there! If you are new here, my name is Amy Small and I am the owner and founder of Knit Collage. Welcome! Next week, we kick off a new iteration of our oh-so-popular knitting challenge, where as a community we will knit the Dream Weaver Pillow by Laurel Gervitz. Check out the video below to hear all the details! 

The Knit Collage team and I will be here to support you and answer any questions that you may have along the way so that you happily finish with something you adore. Together, we’ll jumpstart your knitting practice, so that you get to experience the amazing benefits that come from knitting things – increased creativity and a healthy tool you can lean anytime into to bring about calm and peace, just to name a few! We kick the adventure off on August 1, 2024.
