We are super excited that some shops and friends in the DC knitting community were willing to help us defray some of our costs! We'll be posting about all of them in the next couple weeks, so stop back again! First up is Knit-a-Gogo!
I am Danielle Romanetti of Knit-a-Gogo. A couple of years ago I launched this funky little knit business to better provide knitting instruction, events and community building in the DC metro area. I love converting busy professionals to the wonderful world of knitting! Recently I have started more knitting related retreats and trips, such as the Exploration of Lace Retreat in March and a Knitting Event on Mother's Day for mothers and daughters who want to learn together or improve their skills.
My beginner and intermediate classes can be found in a variety of places, including coffee shops, community centers and even bars.
But my real specialty is the "knitted party." It is a great way to spice up a bridal or baby shower or even a get together with girlfriends. At a "knitted shower," everyone learns to knit, while creating a small square that will become part of a blanket for the new bride's home or the baby that is on the way. For more advanced folks, a knitted party can focus on a skill such as lace or entrelac or on a project like Harry Potter Scarves, holiday stockings or sexy lingerie.
I hope you will join me one day for an event or knitting class!
