It’s unfathomable to me that this post finds us at the end of October already. It feels like I’ve been head down on the book for so long that it’s almost a surprise that autumn is well and truly here now that I’ve poked my head back up and resurfaced!
One of the things that has kept me busy this month has been knitting my own Yarn Tamer with the yarnlings that I bought on the Eden Cottage Yarns stand at Yarndale. I’m quite in love with how it’s turned out, but am AMAZED by the wonderful versions I’ve seen as the Yarn Tamer KAL wraps up on the Inspiration Knits Ravelry board. If you haven’t had a chance to see them yet, go take a look. The colour combinations are so beautiful…
As the Yarn Tamer KAL is wrapping up, we’ve already been looking ahead to having a longer KAL for November/December. What better way to welcome winter than with some cosy cables? (Apologies for the alliteration but I’m just so excited about this KAL!)
If you missed seeing it on Ravelry or in the newsletter here are the details:
Cosy Cables KAL
Project(s): Shadowlines wrap or Umbra cowl
Runs from: Sunday, November 1st to Friday, December 18th (giving you plenty of blocking and wrapping time if your project is a gift, or if you’re planning on wearing it to any Christmas parties!)
Tag your projects (on Ravelry and Instagram/Twitter): #IKCosyCablesKAL
Prizes: There are three chances to win one of my single patterns – participating in the thread on Ravelry, tagging your project on Ravelry, or for having a finished and tagged project with photo.
AND… I’m also excited to announce that LoveKnitting are going to do a prize draw for a £100 voucher from names of anyone who has purchased more than 10 balls of MillaMia Aran between October 26th and November 8th. This is worth more than the price of the yarn to make Shadowlines (which incidentally, takes 13 balls of MillaMia Aran, if you were thinking about knitting this luxurious wrap).
There’s no special code to enter, LoveKnitting will automatically enter you into the draw if you make your purchase between now and November 8th – leaving you plenty of time to get knitting before the holidays. Unfortunately, this prize draw is not open to South Africa as LoveKnitting don’t ship there.
Ooh! And a little tip – if you don’t already get the LoveKnitting newsletter, sign up and you’ll be emailed a code for 15% off your first purchase – making the yarn for your wrap even more affordable!
So will we see you over there? Come join us and tell us what you’ll be knitting and your yarn choice!
