GODDESS KNITS MYSTERY SHAWL KAL
While innocently perusing Ravelry, I happened upon a KAL being offered by a designer I had not seen before. I should have stopped there, but oh no, I looked at her designs and was drawn in.
Renee Leverington, the designer is offering the Goddess Knits Anniversary Mystery Shawl for 2013 . This is a free KAL with pattern to be given out on five consecutive Saturdays beginning April 20.
What we know so far is the design is for a lace, half-hexagon-shaped shawl that will likely be beaded (who can argue with that) and was designed to be done in about 875 yards of silk yarn on a size 4 or 5 needle. Odd how things happen, we just found a new lace weight silk yarn, Traum Seide, 100% mulberry silk that is exactly the amount needed for this KAL.
I invite anyone who loves a little challenge and is willing to be adventurous to join me for this KAL. I'll be meeting at the shop on the following dates to work on the KAL, April 21, 28, May 12, 26 and June 2 from 10:30 to 12:30. By June 2, you should have a lovely summer shawl completed and ready to wear for all your warm weather events.
Stop by the shop soon so you can look at the color card and we can order your yarn and get you enrolled in the Goddess Knits Anniversary 2013 KAL.
