I am hosting my very first knit-a-long to celebrate the release of my latest shawl design, Ysabel. Full disclosure, I’ve never actually participated in a KAL before, so it’s a new experience for me all around. But I’m very much looking forward to working up this shawl with all the other knitters who have joined the KAL so far. The KAL runs until June 30th and everyone who signs up and completes the shawl (including project page with finished photos) within that time frame will be entered for a prize package including a skein of yarn from Long Dog Yarn, my new yarn line (more on that later!). If you’d like to join in, you can find us here in my Ravelry group and receive a special discount on the pattern, too!
I’m trying to narrow down my choice for my next Ysabel. I know I want to use the skein of Republic of Wool Twisted Fingering in Goober Patrol that I bought when I was visiting Portland in January, but I’m having trouble finding a color to go with it. I have a pink and a black in my stash that might work. Or maybe I need to go do a little yarn shopping?
