KAL :: Kvosin

I have never done a KAL before, but it is something that I’ve been thinking of doing.  I saw that Stephen West is launching a series of new patterns with KAL & thought I’d join in the fun.


The first KAL begins on Friday 2/8/13 & will be the Kvosin hat. With poor old winter knocking at my door, I decided that I needed to make myself a new warmer hat. This will be just the one. I love the combination of texture & colors.  I also love that it is constructed sideways.  I’ve always knitted hats in the round, & I love having the opportunity to break out of that box!



I’ve chosen my yarn for the project.  I’m going to be using The Rocking Yak’s 100% Yak Down yarns in natural brown, cream, indigo, plant dyed yellow, & plant dyed green.  I can’t wait to get started.  Let me know if you decide to join us!

Winter knitting

With snow covering the ground, I have been spending more time with my needles in hand. I’ve enjoyed creating a collection of patterns & designs that have inspired my winter knitting. What has inspired your knitting this season?
