March #knitterlykal

Posted on July 14 2015

This year has been screaming by! Is it seriously March?? I'm seeing green shamrocks and corned beef already. So - I am excited to say the knit-a-longs have been going great! I plan to do one every month through out the year. It's super fun, I love seeing your Instagram pics and Facebook posts, and I'm getting a lot of knitting done. This months project was inspired by my own family life. We welcomed our third baby and second son into our lives last Monday. So of course when we got the free Erika Knight "Little prince & Princess Slippers" I had to chose that for the KAL for March. The timing was also perfect for a shipment of yummy a new (machine washable) yarn"Big Bad Wool" 20140223-055320.jpg They would make a great shower gift or welcome home gift for baby. It takes little yarn and knits pretty quickly. And you can personalize after knitting! I have some fun ideas I'm excited to share. I plan to make four pair. A boy/ girl in the Erika Knight yarn "British Blue Wool" and a boy/ girl pair in the "Big Bad Wool". I'll let you know as I go what I think of both and what I think of the pattern. One of the things I love about knitting together is perspective. Sometimes we can get stumped on a pattern and it just takes a different perspective to make it clear. So share! 😉 You can download the pattern here or come in the shop and grab your free copy. There is also information here on donating your baby slippers to newborn babies in hospitals. It's pretty great. If you want to participate and help a good cause. I think these could be a great project to make and stash for when you have a shower to go to or find out a friend is expecting. Just personalize once you decide who they are for😉 March #knitterlykal materials: *Pattern *About 60 yards washable wool ~British Blue Wool ~ Big Bad Wool * US #3 needles * Ribbon or other embellishments * Darning needle I loved doing the raffle last month. So fun! This time I'm going to share with you what the raffle prize is. 👏😋 Have you seen the new and really fun bags we carry? We carry two local companies "Fringe Supply Co" (our last raffle prize was a Fringe Supply Co bag) and "Ambatalia". I have been using both of the local brands bags and adore them. So this month the raffle prize will be the gift of the adorable Bento bag by "Ambatalia"! 20140223-060329.jpg All the shop girls love them and they are great for projects, lunches, or whatever😉 So come get your supplies and be sure to leave your name and number for the raffle. Then tell us on Facebook, tag us on Instagram and track your progress on Facebook (and Instagram) with our #knitterlykal hashtag. Can't wait to see who joins!! This month we will do a picking up stitches tutorial on our YouTube page. Happy knitting! xx Ash
