Summer Knit A Long

I've had such a great time doing the Octavia KAL that I've picked a pattern and yarn for the next! Marcy has designed a beautiful shawl, Marrowstone, that will be perfect for summer knitting and wearing. Check out her blog post for the inspiration of the shawl too.
I've listed Shine in the shop and will be doing more in the next week. Shine is 50% Merino 50% Tencel. The tencel adds a beautiful drape and shine to the yarn. The color is so beautiful and rich on the yarn too. If there is a certain color you are interested in and don't see let me know, I'll dye it up.
Cast on is June 21st and the deadline is pretty loose. I don't think it'll take you a whole season to knit it! Maybe by the time we get to casting on we'll have a goal of when to be done. I'm thinking I want to have mine ready for Sock Summit. That's just over a month from cast on and should be easy to do.
I'll be giving away a skein and Marcy is donating a copy of the pattern to a lucky winner for the next KAL. Details for that will happen soon. We have about 2 weeks left to finish up Octavia. I'm hoping to break into the fifth lace repeat tonight! Happy Knitting!!

PS a contest is happening Wednesday for a different pattern and skein of yarn!
PPS CSY/F shipped today!!!
