Slip into Spring MKAL

Slip into Spring

As we look forward to welcoming Springtime and all the wonderful things it brings, we are starting our second pattern in our year of Mystery Knit Along’s where we learn something new.

This time we are focusing on slipped stitches.

This is a 2 color, crescent style shawl in lovely fingering weight yarn that uses slipped stitches to create some very interesting patterns and lace components.  Beading is optional, but a great introduction to using beads.

The clues will be spread out over 7 weeks with simple, non-stressful sections released each week.

If you’ve never done a Mystery Knit Along before, you are in for a treat.  Discovering the mystery along with your fellow knitters is the best.

Each Clue will be added to the one(s) previous, so in the end, you’ll have the final pattern in whole.

The MKAL discussions will be in the Wild Prairie Knits group, so come and join us.

Where will you keep your project over the 7 weeks?

Plum Creek Project Bags

As many of you know, Ann from Stunning String Studios and I worked very closely with a local seamstress to create what we consider the perfect project bags.

These bags are excellent for organizing and/or transporting your knitting and crochet projects.

 

  • We offer fabric choices that are classy and elegant and fit into a modern woman’s style, allowing you to easily take your project into a professional working environment.
  • The size allows you to keep your yarn, work in progress and accessories inside the bag wherever you go.
  • Transporting projects can be hard on yarn.  We use satiny linings exclusively so it slides over your yarn without grabbing at it and fuzzing it up.  All bags also have a satiny interior pocket.
  • The top strap is very versatile.  It can hang from your wrist or an armrest (works especially well on airplanes), and is great for storing multiple projects on hooks or doorknobs.
