Yarn Over KAL Beauties

So many beautiful projects are being made in the Blue Peninsula Yarn Over KAL. Today I thought I'd share a few—some in progress, some finished—with links to the knitter's Ravelry project page. (And not just knitting is happening—check the discussion thread for a delicious-sounding recipe for honey-ginger lemon-limeade.)

 a lettuce-green Knoppen Hat by afeistyknitter

 a striking Oliveta by Brennee

another Oliveta with a lovely pink lace edge by Camsclan

and still another, this one by tricoteuse007

 Fee-bee Mitts by suzygirl

 Also by afeistyknitter (her needles are smoking!): a pretty pink pair of Shallows Mitts

Such an inspiring range of projects, colors, and yarns! I'm loving all the bright, summery colors. If you'd like to join us, cast on anytime between now and May 17. While you might not be able to finish something large like a shawl, a hat or a pair of mitts is doable. And if you need extra incentive, take a look at the new prize that's just been added—a skein of sock yarn from EndoftheRowYarns:

What a gorgeous blue! It would be perfect for a pair of Couplet socks, or maybe a Biscuit cowl, or Streusel. I envy the person who wins this beauty.

Just a reminder: My Mother's Day Sale on the Conklaree scarf and Oliveta shawl ends Sunday. Use the coupon code BLACKBIRD on Ravelry to save 30% on either or both of these patterns.

That Knoppen is fantastic! Love all of these, it's so inspiring when one is in a knitting dead funk to see what other people are up to.

Thanks for your comment, Corrie. Hope your knitting funk ends soon!
