So!!! Here we are, at the beginning of June, lots and lots of KALs to join in on. I hope that lots of you are joining in with us here and making yourself a lovely lovely shawl this summer!
So, I’m gonna make something that’s been in my queue since this debuted back in early Spring/late winter. I mentioned it in the last blog post! It’s Dawn Henderson’s Retreat Shawl!
Hello all!!! I’m so sorry that this is a week behind, so I decided to just join week 4 & 5’s post together. I got an unexpected opportunity to participate in a local fiber festival last weekend, so it threw my weekly schedule off a bit. Thanks for your patience!!
So, how’s it going everyone?! Did you get through the stockinette body section? I have to admit…I’m not finished with it yet myself! OMG! Life got busy, as it does sometimes, so I wasn’t able to knit as much as I hope to. However, I’m only 2 cm away, so I’m hoping to finish it today and jump on into our next section. I’m gonna work my fingers off this weekend to catch up. Like I’ve said before, the goals I’ve been setting for the KAL are loose goals, but it’s ok to go as slowly as you need to.
October 11th is finally here, and that means our Oldies KAL begins today!! Welcome everyone!! Have you already gathered your yarn and supplies? I got a bit of a head start on this, since I’m planning to post each Thursday, but if you’re just beginning, don’t worry!
I am so excited for this event to get rolling here, especially during October! Knitting season is full on here in the Northern Hemisphere, and our queues are getting full.
Rie Vive, a designer from Kochi, Japan, has created a timeless, cozy, fun knit out of our Retreat base here at Nutmeg Fibers. I was so honored that she was interested in working with our yarn when I reached out to her, and the pattern she came up with is something that you’ll want to wear this year or ten years from now.
