Sunshine and tree blossoms... Longer days and knitting in the park...
For us at TIK that all calls a Spring Knit-a-Long!
Previous KALs (Knitalongs) have included the Annis
and Luna Moth
Shawls. We're going for garments this time (who doesn't need a cotton cardigan in their Spring/Summer collection?) and we've been absolutely enchanted by the new Louisa Harding "Ondine
" patterns. There are two cardigans in particular that we'd see as being staples in anyone's wardrobe:
So, rather than choose, we're opting for both!
Here's how it will work:
The start date for the KAL will be Wednesday 6th of April.
Pop in to the shop (or email/phone us) on or before that date and choose one of the cardigans and your shade of Ondine
yarn. Buy the yarn and get the pattern book *completely free*.
The KAL will run until Weds 18th May and everyone who finishes their cardigan by that date will be entered into a draw for a great goody bag prize. Just look at the great selection
Julie won last time around...!
Knitting assistance will be available every Wednesday lunchtime at the shop and virtually (24/7) through the dedicated thread in our TIK Ravelry group
We're also going to experiment with Twitter, and take KAL questions every Wednesday lunchtime from those who can't make it into the shop in person. Twitter users can follow us by clicking here
Great yarn, free pattern book, sparkling support, fabulous camaraderie and a completely-untested-fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants-Twitter element. This KAL should be a lot of fun! :)
