Shawl Update and KAL!



No matter where you live in the world, shawl season is about to hit.  With both hemispheres headed into either Spring or Autumn/Fall, now is the time to start planning your next shawl project; and we are here to help!  As this week is all about shawls, we are featuring five of our favourite shawl yarns:

Because this is a pre-order update, you get to decide which colour you would like dyed onto your choice of yarn.  We have scoured the 'Wish List' thread on Ravelry and have so far come up with these colourways:


Do you have a colourway you would like to see in this week's Shawl Update? Please head on over to the Wish List thread to post your colourways suggestions.  Be quick, because the final colourway list will be posted in the Ravelry 'News' thread on Tuesday afternoon.

This week's Shawl Update will be held on Wednesday 3rd Feb at 9am AEDST (which is Tuesday 5pm EST in the USA).  We hope to see you there!  All orders placed will begin shipping from the 22nd February.



Shawl KAL

Want to knit-along with us? We will be hosting a Skein Shawl KAL which will run from 14th March - 9th May. This gives you plenty of time to organise yarns and patterns, plus finish any left over projects you might be currently working on. It’s also a great opportunity to use your Shawl Update yarns and have fun knitting along with others. There are SO many beautiful patterns available on Ravelry. Here are a few of our faves:


Great Divide Shawl, Rheinlust, Tilted Triangle, Herbivore, Samen, Buccaneer, Dotted Rays (shown at the very top of the email and knit with the colourway Neon and Grey), and Tailspin.

So, come on over to the Shawl KAL thread and let's talk patterns, yarn and colours!  There will of course be prizes; check out the KAL thread for more details.

Have a fabulous week!
