Spring is the best season for knitting and wearing shawls!
Who’s up for a knit-along?
Let’s sum it up:
- Choose a shawl pattern from the ones listed here. You can work from a pattern you already have if it’s on the list, from the free pattern available there or get one for 20% off using the coupon code ShawlKAL2016 (it will work during all of the KAL period).
- Go to my Ravelry group and say hi in the KAL thread.
- Until June 13, knit your shawl, post pictures of your progress, cheer and chat in the chat thread.
- When you are done, create a project page on Ravelry and share a final picture in the FO thread.
Repeat as many times as you like!
Every week, I’ll be drawing a coupon code for a free pattern – the more you chat, the more chances you have of winning. And during the week of June 13, I’ll be drawing physical prizes (one finished object = one participation).
We have generous sponsors who are giving away AWESOME handmade prizes, and I can’t believe how lucky we are!!! Let me show you…
Ellen from The Chilly Dog is once again offering one of her handmade roll-up knitting needle cases! She’s using a gorgeous variety of fabrics and the winner will get to choose her favorite from her shop.
Let me quote Marian from Marianated Yarns:
“My yarns marianate in colorful marianades while waiting to join your stash.”
And believe me, all of her “marianades” look delicious! She is offering a skein of Practicality 75/25 to one lucky winner who will get to choose her favorite color!
Michelle from Maple Moose Fibres will offer one of her handmade project bags! She’s using a great variety of fabrics, from delicate flower patterns to fun pop culture prints. The winner will get to choose her favorite bag from her shop.
Ludmilla creates gorgeous cards using photographies and vintage images. Her Etsy shop is filled with an impressive variety of cards of all kind that are sure to please anyone, especially knitters as her shop includes a gift for knitters section! The winner will get to choose between a set of greeting cards or a box of knit care tags, featuring her own sheep!
I am falling head over feet for Frisenvang, a Danish company with a double mission: providing quality yarn to the Danes, and supporting 265 families from Peru by getting their alpaca wool directly from the communities. [Read more about their mission here.] Their yarns are so lovely that they are now offering them worldwide. And for our KAL, they are generously offering a kit to knit their Frisenvang shawl, including two skeins of baby alpaca yarn and the pattern.
The more winners, the happier I am! Therefore, I am adding two sets of my homemade stitch markers. They are light and cute, and can be used on needles up to size US 10.5 / 6.5 mm.
I hope you are as excited as I am by this knit-along! I can’t wait to see your projects and chat with you all! ♥︎
