Fireworks was the official pattern of the 5th Annual 4 Day Knitalong — It’s been five years since that first long weekend when I thought maybe I’d try to knit a sweater in four days. It was a silly personal challenge and I had no idea that it would become an annual event that drew together a remarkable community of knitters around the globe. The 4 Day Knitalong has never been about 4 days – not really. It’s about knitting a sweater faster than you thought we could – and doing it with the energy, enthusiasm, and support of the Olive Knits community.
