KAL News:

I’m excited to start the Box O’ Sox KAL, hosted by the Yarngasm Podcast
We have two active Curious Handmade KALs going at the moment. The deadline for both is the 31st of January!
Vintage Fairy Light KAL
WIPs, FOs and even chat will qualify you for this draw! Modifications to the pattern are welcome! The prize is very special: a skein of the limited edition Hedgerow Yarns colourway created for the Christmas Eve Cast-On Kits!
Knitvent KAL
A photo of an FO from any pattern from any year’s Knitvent collection will qualify you for the draw, as long as you began knitting it in November or later. There are two prizes, TBD!
Mystery KAL coming soon!
There is a Mystery Knitalong on the way from Curious Handmade…for more details make sure that you’re signed up to our mailing list.(You’ll even get a free shawl pattern as a bonus when you sign up!) In the meantime, have a peek at the Summertide Shawl MKAL we did together in 2015. It will give you a good idea of what to expect
The Not Seen Before MKAL is starting soon.
This MKAL is to benefit the Sight is Life project, which raises money for sight-saving operations in Congo. I spoke to Kristina Vilimaite about the project on the podcast not long ago. The MKAL will feature clues from 7 designers, including me! The pattern hasn’t been released yet, but you can get it by purchasing the Sight is Life eBook. The pattern will also be released individually. Learn more in the Sight is Life Ravelry Group
That’s all for this week! Thanks so much for listening, and happy knitting!
