January 24 2013 – thisisknit
Look, it just happened, ok? First, there was a blog post on our trio of Color Affections and then it exploded. Before we knew it, there's a sudden Knit-Along happening. All over the place, people are gleefully choosing yarns, burrowing into stash, mixing colours. We've got a thread over in the This Is Knit group on Ravelry to discuss plans and progress, and there's a lot of chatter on twitter (you're following @ThisIsKnit, yes?). So why not leap in and join us? You'll need yarn in three colours - most people are using fingering weight, but you don't need enormous amounts of any of them. A quick browse through existing projects reveals that 275m of colour 1, 250m of colour 2 and 275m of colour 3 should do it. Over in the KAL thread, January 28th is the suggested start date, with February 25th as a finish line. There's a couple of relevant groups that are goldmines of information on Ravelry: Wingspan, Color Affection and More KAL, which started as a KAL group but which has continued on afterwards and Stripes Galore KAL, another former KAL thread devoted to Veera VÃ¤limÃ¤kiâ€™s lovely clever striped designs. Three colours, toning or contrasting, and lots and lots of soothing garter stitch. What could be nicer? The only question is: can we stop at just one?
