Summer KAL

Can you believe it's almost summer?! We had a great preview here in May, but it looks like we're headed for a little June gloom for a while. Hopefully the sun will keep making daily appearances!

The summer KAL is just around the corner! We'll cast on June 20th, the first day of summer. We're going to be knitting Sierra Sunset Cowl from Marinade Designs and I just can't wait! We'll be using DK, 85% Polwarth wool and 15% Silk. Such a gorgeous yarn!

Special thanks to JimmyBeansWool for sharing these pictures and for sharing the free pattern! Doug Zander did a great job with the pictures!

Thank you again to Doug Zander and JimmyBeansWool for the photo
The cowl looks lickety split fast with all the garter knitting and then a tidy lace border. Best of all, we get to use buttons! I have a wee stash...somewhere, but I might need to rustle up some perfect ones for this. I also think this will be a great addition to the sunset wardrobe. There's a little chill that moves in and I think this is just the ticket! I hope you can join in on the KAL. I bet we can even talk Kristen (could she be any cuter!), the designer, into a little interview! Stop by the shop and get your yarn for the summer KAL!
