New Lace Samplers and a Lace KAL for Summer!

Lots of you have probably already noticed the new Lace Samplers that have appeared on our website. They come in 4 rich, pretty colorways and each sampler comes with the pattern to knit both the Chinook Shawl (pictures above in the “Deep Sea” colorway) and the Pyrifera Scarf. (Click “more images” on the product page to see more pictures of these!) Well, today Tina launched our Lace Knit Along and I graciously agreed to go on the record, as the designer of the Chinook shawl, to give you all an idea of how it came to be:

Neat, eh? Anyone can join the KAL, you don’t have to be working this particular pattern to do so, so come on by! I’d love to see a good mix of seasoned and newer lace knitters there, helping each other along. I’ll be there, answering questions about the pattern I wrote and…gulp! Knitting it myself, as a gift for my mother-in-law. Trust me, you don’t want to miss THAT! <
