Finishing & Advanced CustomFit online seminars

Hello good knitters! Lauren here.

Did you finish your holiday gift knitting? You’ll be happy to hear that I did, and even got it mailed in time to make it to my home state for Christmas! My Gift Sweater KAL recipient may have been spoiled by some photos I posted on our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, but even if she has seen them, I hope she’s delighted. In the meantime, I’m trying to decide what knitting to bring on the plane for my Christmas travels… At least I have a lot of options?

Amy loved teaching the first Make. Wear. Love. series for new sweater knitters — and I loved helping out too. Now, we’re excited to bring you some brand new online classes! The more advanced sweater knitters have spoken, and they want online classes too. And so we’re closing out 2014 with two Advanced Seminars with Amy.

First, finishing! Knitting sweaters is the fun part, but many of us dread putting them together. Let Amy help you set in sleeves, pick up buttonbands, and match mattress stitch seams. Amy will fully customize the class to the students’ questions and interests. The Finishing Knits Seminar will take place on December 27, from 11 am – 1 pm EST. The cost is $40To sign up, fill out this form.


Next, Advanced CustomFit. This class might be for you if you’ve made your first CustomFit sweater and you’re ready to take it to the next level. Do you want to add cables to your sweater, but you’re not sure how many stitches to add? Maybe you have a favorite pattern by another designer that you’re dying to adapt using CustomFit. Or if you just want an overview of the steps beyond basic custom sweaters. The Advanced CustomFit Seminar will take place on January 3, from 11 am – 1 pm EST. The cost is $40To sign up, fill out this form.

We know the holidays are upon us, and you may be busy at these times. Not to worry — we’ll run these seminars again soon. Since it’s such a busy time of year, each class will only run if we get 8 students or more. We’ll send confirmation with 1 business day, unless we don’t get enough students — in which case, we’ll let you know as soon as we decide.


Finally, you may notice a bit of a delay in our response time over the Christmas holidays, as most of the team will be traveling, spending time with our families, and snuggling up with a mug of tea (like Jackie below, from last year!). Thanks for your patience, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we’re back in the office! We’re so thankful to be part of your sweater journeys every day. ❤noanet-peak-finals-smaller-5

  1. Happy Holidays to all of you! I’m so glad you’re going to do an Advanced Custom Fit more than once. I really want to do this, but can’t in ealry Jan. Safe travels, warm fuzzy times, and good knitting!

    1. Another time! Happy holidays to you!

  2. Happy Holidays to all the wonderful women of Custom Fit. I am almost done with my sweater fronts from the Monday class that started in September. I am not a slow knitter but I have a Golden Retriever puppy that i am training. He also thinks of yarn as balls to play with. He won’t be a puppy forever… i have another year or so. I also would be interested in the Advanced Custom Fit and finishing class….maybe in a couple of months. I really enjoyed Amy’s class. I have been knitting since i was a child; and i still learned a thing or two every class. Safe travels ; and healthy and happiest of new year’s to each of you.

    1. We can’t wait to see your sweater 🙂

  3. Marry & happy & joyful to you all! May your travels be safe, the time spent with loved ones special & may creativity & prosperity follow you into the new year. Thank you for your work that inspires us, makes us better knitters & allows us to see our garments with an educated vision.

  4. Please, please don’t have all your classes on Saturday! I’d really like to take them, but I am Sabbath-observant and can’t do them on Saturday. Please have some on Sunday or weekdays for those of us who can’t do Saturdays, for whatever reason…thanks!

    1. Hi Carol, Thanks for the feedback! The timing of these classes was a bit funky with the holiday season, so we’ll definitely hold them on Sundays and weekdays in the future.


  5. Love to take the Ad. CF class and plan a new sweater. So many on my Wishlist. What about Brickland which is already in the MWL catalog? Better to take one uninvolved in CF? Oh, and I want to knit in the round. Sorry, I just love it that way.
    Happy Holidays to all you wonderfully creative women.

  6. Are there plans for more of the first online classes to be run again? I couldn’t sign up for the first round but I would love to do it in 2015.

    1. Yes! Absolutely! We love the online class format and both of these seminars — as well as a repeat of the 6-week introductory class — will get their chance in 2015.

  7. Will you be holding the advanced class this Sat? I wasn’t able to complete the form.

    1. Hi Linda! The class is full, but we’ll be holding another in 2015 very soon!


      1. Ok thanks Lauren.
