Countdown to the Yarn Over KAL

Are you up for some relaxed summer knitting among friends? The next Blue Peninsula knitalong starts in a week, with a focus on lace. For the Yarn Over KAL, you can knit any of my designs with a yarn over in it.

Socks, sweaters, shawls, scarves, cowls, mitts—all qualify for this KAL. The dates are Sunday, May 28 through Sunday, July 30.

There will be some lovely prizes, too. One is a skein of Luna Grey Fiber Arts Altair sock yarn, a blend of merino/nylon/Tencel. I'm knitting my next sock design with this yarn and am so pleased with its striking color and stitch definition, I decided to order another skein for a KAL prize.

Another prize is two skeins of Stitch Sprouts Yellowstone, the sport weight wool/silk blend that I used for my Meadow Road pullover. Yellowstone works beautifully for lace, so it seemed like a natural choice for a prize. Two skeins are enough to make many of my cowl or shawl designs; see my Ravelry designer page for ideas.

Prize for Yarn Over KAL

I'll be announcing one more prize later this week in the KAL discussion thread. You can join now or anytime during the KAL, and WIPS are welcome, too. So if you started a sweater or a shawl a while ago and need incentive to finish up, this KAL is for you. 

Hope you can join us! Thanks for reading—and have a beautiful day.
