The Perfect Blend MKAL will begin July 8! It is a collaboration with Miss Babs and me and open to all dyers and LYS’s - read more below. It is about community and sharing our love of knitting (and tea) - and you will end up with a very pretty boomerang shaped shawl! Also the “Lagalong Group” was a strong group last year so no worries if you don’t get it done on time!

6 clues over 6 weeks
12 mini-skeins - or use 4 skeins of 300 yards of sock yarn
Tea recipes!

Skill Level - advanced beginner. Can yo, k2tog, ssk, slip some, knit some, purl some, make some, that kind of stuff. If you’ve done some of my patterns, you’ll be fine and there is Paced and Planned Netflix Knitting throughout.

All of the details are here including all of the participating dyers. As their kits go up, I will put links in. If you purchase the pattern now, you will automatically get update emails with new pre-clues and when Clues 1-6 are published. There is currently a pre-clue with a schematic to help with your color placement and I’ve added one for those who want to use four full skeins of sock yarn.

The kits from Miss Babs are now available here. The top one is the one I used for the design - I started with the hot pink (Color 1) and ended with the Gold (Color 12).

Materials 12 mini-skeins, at least 100 yards each for the normal sized shawl - not huge but lovely (80 yards for the smaller version which is still in testing).

If you are a local yarn store, feel free to participate in any way you like to foster your individual community. Think afternoon tea or a matcha tasting! There is a list on the details page (link above) of the participating dyers and a number of them do wholesale orders to LYS’s.
