Progressive East Side Project (PEEP)

Join us!

For this year’s Progressive East End Project (PEEP), six yarn stores have joined together to host a Mystery Knit- and Crochet-A-Long! The project is a hat and mitts set. Each store is pre-selling kits which include Pipit DK Micro (75% merino, 25% nylon) mini-skeins dyed by MUSE2320 and a main color chosen by each yarn store. Choose which main color resonates with you – then purchase that kit from the store offering that color.

Like last year, each shop will sell complete project kits. Cost is $52/kit. There is no need to travel to each of the six shops to gather the mini skeins. 

Kits go on sale today, July 22 through July 29 – they will not be available after the 29! Purchase of a kit automatically registers you for the MKAL/MCAL. The first clue for knit and crochet patterns will be sent to all kit purchasers on October 7; we’ll offer a “Let’s get this PEEP party started” Zoom meeting that day as well (time TBD). Second clue released on October 14; third clue on October 21; final clue on October 28.

Follow PEEP on Facebook and Instagram to see the big reveal of the main colors from each shop and check out our colors below. Preorder our kit by phone (651.426.5463) or come into the shoppe during our regular hours! Pre-ordered kits will be available September 15.

Project Information

Jeepers Peepers, designed by Laura Rasmussen, is a gender-neutral hat and mittens (or mitts) set. The pattern is accessible enough for an inexperienced knitter yet engaging for a more advanced knitter. The stitches used are basics: knit, purl, k2tog, ssk, and yarnover. You’ll need US 5/3.75mm needles in 16” circular, dpns, and, if desired, 8-9”circular. We’ll share more info as we get closer to cast-on day, October 7.

Our crochet pattern, Not a Peep About It, is a hat and fingerless mitts set. Designed by Carly Stipe. Great for an adventurous beginner or seasoned crocheters. Using fun twists on the Hdc, you’ll work the hat in the round. The fingerless mitts are worked flat and seamed. You’ll need both a F/3.75mm & I/5.50mm Hook sizes (or the hook size that will get you gauge).

Come by the shoppe or call us at 651.426.5463 to get your kit today!
