Knit-A-Long 2016



First Point of Libra Shawl by Laura Aylor

We first saw this shawl walk into the shop as the WIP of one of our wonderful Purl Regulars and we were immediately struck with it simplicity, beauty and perfect usage of the mini skein kits! And so the next KAL was decided.

This modular garter stitch shawl is knit in multiple directions to make the most of gradient collection of yarn!

Our featured yarn is the GORGEOUS Sweetgeorgia Party of Five Gradient kits and Tough Love Sock. The pattern will require one Party of Five Kit plus 2 skeins of Tough Love Sock to complete. Purchase your materials with us by February 2nd and KAL participants will receive a 15% discount on the Party of 5 kit and 2 skeins of Tough Love sock for this project, plus 50% off a digital copy of the pattern.

We have a big order of kits enroute to the shop which we expect to arrive by the end of January. The hard part will be to decide on the Main Colour!!!! We will have lots of Birch as it has been most popular choice so far, but have a good look a the myriad of projects already worked up... the options are endless! Then pop in to see what is on hand!

Want to get a jump on your colour choices? Give us a call to reserve a kit and your main colour choice!

So here is the plan...

The official cast on date is Tuesday, February 2nd... and since deadlines are good for getting things finished... We are scheduling a gathering for a photo shoot on Tuesday, March 29th... That gives us about 2 months to knit up this cozy scarf (or two)!

As usual, our Tuesday evening stitch night will provide help and guidance... Join us February 2nd for our Kickoff and we will discuss the helpful hints of getting started including: How this shawl is constructed, the ever popular discussion about gauge, about slipping edging stitches!

We will also have a thread in The Purple Purl Ravelry Group so we can cheer each other on and post progress photos! The Ravelry tag for this knit-a-long will be:


so set up your projects and tag 'em up so we can see how awesome you are doing!
