New KAL Has Begun!

On Friday July 9, Julia started her next KAL- Summer Flies! She will offer guidance on 2 patterns this time- Summer Flies and Summer Flies Again. Patterns are quite similar, one being much larger. We suggest a worsted weight yarn such as: Comfort Worsted, Neve Cotton (shown here in yellow), Worsted Merino Superwash, Madelinetosh tosh DK, Galway Worsted, or Denim DK (we just got new colors and restock). So purchase your pattern and yarn, check your gauge, and be ready to start on July 9! Both of these designs begin with the garter tab- the first thing Julia will go over.
Julia will be using a new yarn called Painted Sky- this softly drifting worsted weight wool will add more color to this design. (See Painted Sky Below)
Shown here in Aqua on Linda knit in Rayon Metallic. Took less than 1 hank. Linda worked the pattern as written with the ruffled border.
One of our absolute favorite shawls. The 7 pattern stitch sections will keep you interested. There is also an extended border (shown in Neve above in yellow). The pattern is extremely well written, including end of row stitch counts. Requires about 380 yards of a worsted weight yarn, but we can help you adjust things to work with DK weight yarns as well.
For those who desire a larger shawl, may we suggest you try the
Summer Flies Again. The first 5 sections are the same as Summer Flies,
followed by additional larger sections.
Requires about 700 yards of a worsted weight yarn.
