Thank you so much to everyone who has already bought the book and yarn to start their Knit A Long (KAL), and thank you to everyone who is going to do so! Over at Knitterly, none of us can wait to see all of the wonderful knits that you all are making. Already in our shop, Brigit has finished her Gravel shawl. She used Woolfolk SNO, and the result is amazing. SNO knits up so softly, and the seed stitch of Gravel really lets the fibers bloom.
Shelli is working on a couple of Sequence Knitting projects herself, and can't wait until they're finished so she can share them with you. Her Twig shawl is coming along marvelously! She is knitting it with Woolfolk SNO (which she thinks is even better than cashmere!), and just had a chance to take it with her to Oregon for some coastal knitting with friends. Not only did she have a ton of fun, but got the chance to really get the feel for her Twig, and learned some things that she would like to share with anyone else making it.
Shelli wants to let anyone who is working on Twig know that it is not the knitting project you work on while hanging out with friends. The tricky stitch count on Twig necessitates personal knitting time for some uninterrupted focus.
If you are looking for a Sequence Knitting project to take with you to a coffee date or for some quality time with friends, Shelli recommends casting on for Delta Wing, which is less complex and easier to read. On her trip, one of Shelli's friends was working on a gorgeous version of Delta Wing in Isager Alpaca 2. Shelli said the yarn was knitting up beautifully, and her friend was able to chat on the beach for hours without missing a stich! When she got back home, Shelli immediately cast on for her own Delta Wing, using some of the yummy new Twirl Petals that we just got into the shop. The new colors are so dazzling, Shelli couldn't help but start right away!
And she's not the only shop girl knitting a Sequence project out of Twirl! Both Kendra and SJ have started their KAL with Twirl too. Twirl is a perfect pick for any Sequence Knitting project, and the new colors we just got in are too pretty not to try!
