We couldn’t release the expanded Strange Brew recipe pattern AND 8 new colourwork sweaters without a KAL could we?! It’s time to gather up your yarn, pull out your needles, and join us for some knit-along fun!
How to join in:
Knit a project from our new book Strange Brew (either create a unique design of your own following our recipe pattern, or knit one of the 12 designs) between October 9th and December 6 2018, and join us in our Ravelry group here. It’s that simple!
The number one reason to join a KAL is definitely that the knitting community is awesome. Going to a party with your non-knitting friends and sharing the gory details of your latest knit doesn’t always make you the most popular dinner guest. Gary is pretty patient when I wax poetic about a new yarn or my latest sweater debates (to crop or not to crop, that is the question), but I can definitely see his eyes glaze over eventually!
But knitters? They get you. They can weigh in on your colour debates, the ‘what size should I knit’ questions, the excitement over a new short row method. They get it all. They are dying to hear which yarn you chose, who you are knitting for, what went wrong, and what mods you made. A KAL makes the adventure of knitting a sweater even more fun!
Plus, I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who benefits from a deadline when it comes to getting things bound off, blocked and ticked off the list!
What are we knitting?
Emily and I will both be knitting along too! I have grand plans for a top-down sweater for Hunter, with colourwork at the yoke, hem, and cuffs, following the Strange Brew recipe pattern. I’ve got my palette ideas started, but the final colour choices will have to wait until the swatch-a-thon has concluded!
Emily has an unreasonable plan… but this is not unusual! She’s setting out to knit a complete FAMILY of yokes for a crazy family holiday photo. Step one, choose a coordinating set of body colours. Check! More details to come on the Rav group.
Cast on today!
