February is the launch of a new feature at maisieblue’s: Sunday Afternoon Knit-Alongs (or KALs for short). We pick a pattern, meet up once a month on a particular Sunday and knit it along together! The only problem…which patterns do we want to choose?
I’ve put together a quick snapshot poll of the various candidates. Some are quick , a few will take more time with a lovely reward when we’re done and a few are a great challenge to expand our skills. All the patterns have interesting elements that will keep us busy and learning new tricks in the upcoming weeks ahead. Below the poll you’ll find links for each pattern so you can read more details.
Vote for the 4 patterns that would tempt you to come sit with us, sip tea and enjoy a few hours of unfettered knitting time.
So…which are your favorites?
Links for more info:
Baktus [on ravelry] Numerous variations on the original pattern are available (lacey, stripes, miters); the first link takes you to loads of pictures…just don’t be startled by the very scary-haired puppets. The scarf is named after a character in a Norwegian children’s classic tale. I promise…you’re scarf won’t look nearly as scary!
(Unsure of what “ravelry” is? I highly recommend joining to find out-just click the link to check it out. The pattern & yarn database alone is worth it’s weight in wool. Simply put: Ravelry.com is facebook for crafters like us…but much, much cooler. Kimberli can fill you in on all fun bits of life at ravelry.com. Don’t delay… Endless hours of pattern-trawling are merely a few keystrokes away!)
