July is just around the corner and here at KnittyG HQ, we are gearing up for a summer of knitting.

With the launch of “Knit by the Lake”, our bonus knitting group session (3pm @ Lost Lake every 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month), and the near completion of the yarn mobile,  we in Whistler certainly have summer knit fever!

Now Open roads Intergrated Media has teamed with Abrams for a “Summer Knitting Initiative”. Together they are releasing a host of popular knitting books in a digital format for e-readers, making transporting your project with you on vacation ,or down to the lake, a breeze!

Also keep an eye on their blog (Click here) next week, as to kick off the initiative, Open Roads will be releasing free patterns from two of the books below,  publishing recipes for iced drinks and making a playlist of summer songs to compliment your summer knitting bliss! And  if that isn’t enough from July 3rd-10th these e-books will be available at a special promotion price from $4.99 and up!
