I finished my second sideways shawlette knit from Tempted Yarns Luxe Grrl Friday night:
Like the red one, this took two skeins of Luxe Grrl: 500 yards of sportweight yarn. I knit with a U.S. size 5 needle. It measures 60″ along the top edge and 16″ down the center back.
I will offer this and the red shawlette together in one pattern. They are very similar, but the red one has a lace band on the bottom edge above the ruffle while the caramel one just has a simple line of fagoting. They each have a different rate of increase/decrease so the shape is slightly different.
On Saturday I cast on again for my Summer Mystery KAL shawl. I of course have already knit the shawl, while I was designing it. And my tech editor has knit it as well. The KAL starts on June 20 — this Wednesday! At this moment 1,955 people have bought the pattern! I wonder if we’ll reach 2,000 before Wednesday?
If you don’t already have the pattern, there’s still plenty of time to buy it — and of course you can purchase it after the 20th as well. It’s $2.00 while the KAL is going on, and will be $5.00 after the KAL ends later in July.
If you purchase before June 20 (through my Ravelry store) you will get all the preliminary information, including yarn and needle requirements, swatching instructions — it’s all described on the pattern page. On June 20, I will update the pattern to include the first clue, and everyone who has purchased the pattern will be notified to download the update.
There are several threads for the KAL in my Ravelry group and we are having lots of fun sharing photos of yarn and swatches and asking and answering questions.
Anyway, I cast on for the project again — just wanted to knit through it again a bit ahead of the group so I could make any last minute adjustments to the pattern to make it as good as it can be.
