In case you missed it we are hosting a KAL over in our Ravelry group for Heart on my Sleeve! There are lots of supportive knitters there already and did I mention the fabulous prizes? You can join in on social media with the hashtag #heartonmysleeveknits
What are we knitting?
Emily still hasn’t quite decided which sweater she will be knitting along, although she will have to decide soon, she only has 1 more sleeve to go! My Hearthstone for Bodhi is coming along nicely. When I went to the stash to choose some yarn for this KAL I made an awesome discovery: 2/3 of a sweater body! I can’t remember what my plan was, but it’s now becoming a Hearthstone sweater.
I’m working in Sweet Fiber Merino Twist Worsted, which is thicker than the DK called for so I’m knitting a 1-2 year size (which is the about the number of sts in the discovered sweater body) and it will come out a little big for Bodhi (perfect for some room to grow!).
Emily’s sleeve is looking lovely in Malabrigo Rios in ‘marte’, while mine hit a bit of a snag when I joined at the yoke to discover one sleeve was a full 12 rounds shorter than the other….rip rip rip!
For the nervous sweater knitter:
If you haven’t knit a sweater before don’t worry, this is the perfect moment! All the sweaters in Heart on my Sleeve are done from the bottom up, they are all pretty much the same until you hit the yoke. If you are new to it all, try the Heartstring yoke. If you have experience with charts or colourwork try Ironheart, Crazyheart, or Tenderheart!
The awesome prizes:
We were so fortunate to have so much support from the yarn-y community for this project! There are so many great prizes for the Heart on my Sleeve knit along, thanks again to Baa Ram Ewe, Fringe Supply Co, Pom Pom Quarterly, SweetGeorgia Yarns, Tanis Fiber Arts, The Loveliest Yarn Company, and YOTH yarns.
So, which Heart on my Sleeve sweater are you working on?
