Love Note Continues

Plus New KALs are ready

As Julia finishes her Love Note Sweaters, we are already planning for the
next KALS.
First up will be JoAnne with a Facebook Group Page KAL to make an entrelac Washcloth. I will lead you step by step through the project. All you need is one hank of Fantasy Naturale and size 7 or 8 needles. The pattern will be presented in the next newsletter, and I hope to begin next week. So get your materials ready for a fun fast engaging project. Plus once you learn entrelac you can try so many great designs.
Entrelac Washcloth
Takes less than 1 hank of Fantasy Naturale. I suggest you pick a print shade, as its more fun in this design than a solid color.
Entrelac Scarf
Entrelac Hat
Entrelac Cowl
Julia’s next KAL- to start in early November will be The Dustland Shawl by Stephen West. We will suggest DK weight yarns such as: Silky wool, Worsted Merino Superwash, Quaker Hill, Alba, or Neve. More info coming soon………
