How about a Knit-a-long!? I’ve been reading and hearing about KAL’s and thought that it was about time that Mad About Ewe created one of our own. I have waiting for inspiration to strike and this week Knitting Daily site came up with a doozy! Check out the link to the free download from Knitting Daily. The basic pattern for the Helix Scarf is on page 2 of the download and the next 27 pages give you lots of variations to check out. I’m going to personalize my scarf with beads – no surprise there! Both Dorothy and I have chosen our yarns and are ready to go.
I’ve created a new page devoted entirely to this KAL – see the listing at the top of the blog. There we can track our progress, add our names to the roster and pictures as well. Start for the KAL will be Friday March 25th and the end date will be either June 18, or June 25 – World Wide Knit out in Public Day! We can apparently take the whole week in between as well. I’ll take a group photo at that time with us all wearing our scarves!
This week we also got in some more new yarns! A couple of very unique yarns from Be Sweet. One is called the African Bead Ball (I’ve already taken a couple of colours home to play with!) and the other is called Magic Ball! They are very cool and support women’s initiatives in South Africa.
