January is Knit for Me Month.

So, Time for a New KAL!
Julia has finished her Dustland Shawl from a previous KAL.
It looks wonderful! Stephen West designed this magnificent piece as a large wrap to completely surround you in warmth.
Julia’s wrap knit in Jody Long’s Alba does exactly that.
But now Julia is ready to begin our next KAL- The Carbeth. You will love the interesting construction, and the swift gauge. Knit this beauty at 3.5 sts to the inch with either a chunky weight yarn, or a DK weight yarn doubled. Either weight of yarn will make fast work of this design. If the cropped look is too short for you… just make it longer. If the big collar is too big … change it up. KAL to begin on Friday January 11 on our Facebook Group Page. Join us on line or come to one of Julia’s classes. She teaches at TKE on Mondays.
Julia’s Yarn Choice for The Carbeth
Julia has chosen to use Tosh Sport in the color Sand Dune.
She has 6 hanks, each with 270 yards of Superwash Merino.
The yarn will bloom so nicely when held doubled.
Check out these other suggestions for Carbeth.
Many colors available in this Aran/chunky weight wool. Choose it with or without the tweed effect.
A supersoft chunky weight merino that’s machine washable.
We have many tonal shades of Mecha- a rare chunky weight
superwash single ply merino.
