Today marks the beginning of the latest Woolful KAL, although if you’re like me you don’t even have your yarn yet. 🙂 So I’ll be swatching with some leftover Brooklyn Tweed Shelter and getting ready to cast on the moment my yarn arrives.
When I first got the latest issue of Taproot, aptly named ‘Shelter’, I wasn’t totally sure how I felt about the Portland Pullover. I’ve recently made the discovery that I prefer set-in sleeves far more than raglan shaping because of its fit and I had made a momentary mental note to ‘only knit set-in sleeves’ from here on out…until I realized how silly that is. So when I picked up the issue and flipped through it again, I lingered on the pullover pattern a bit longer, admiring it’s neck shaping and simple silhouette. Ok. Done. I’m in. I realized then how great it would be to knit my first sweater started in the new year with friends…so, here we go.
What: Portland Pullover by Carrie Bostick Hoge. You can find this pattern in the most recent issue of Taproot, Shelter. Go grab a copy or subscription if you haven’t already!
When: January 1st-ish through March 31st 2016.
With: Brooklyn Tweed Shelter OR your preferred worsted weight yarn (stash busting time?)
You can find Brooklyn Tweed at some of our friends shops in person and/or online…
And for those that join along, make sure to post photos of WIPs and finished projects on Instagram or on the Knitalong Ravelry page so we can all follow along. Use hashtag #woolfulKAL and after March 31st I’ll announce the lucky random folks who won the gifts. I’m still working to finalize all the gifts, but they will include a Taproot subscription, some Brooklyn Tweed goodness, a copy of Carrie Bostick Hoge’s newest book Swoon Maine and more.
So, go find your yarn and start swatching! xoxo -ash
