We are just about to cast on for this KAL starting tomorrow Monday January 4 and though it was about time we nailed down the details and offered some more inspiration. ketch_large1 The Ketch Harbour pattern calls for the stunning Kettle Yarn Co Islington DK a lush BFL/silk blend, oh so soft, but still with a firm twist to give a stitch definition that will truly high light the design details of the Ketch Harbour Shawl. Pictured in Fiona Alice's Take Heart Collection the shawl is made in the classic Icicle. I'm debating whether or not to go for the darker Old Smoke, or to splash out in a brighter colour like the Marigold or even the Verdigris. islington_oldsmoke islington_verdigris To help you get started we are offering a 15% discount on the Islington DK yarn in a range of colours and the Take Heart book. Three skeins of yarn and the book would regularly retail for £78, but we have them here for you for £66. If you already have the book, don't worry, you can join the KAL and get the yarn from us still with a discount. Just use the code KETCHKAL when making your purchase online or mention it to us if popping by the shop. Please note that the discount only applies for 3 skeins bought at the time as this is the amount needed to complete the Ketch Harbour Shawl. ketch_large2 ketchlarge4 All though Cast On is January 4th (for the more eager and impatient of us) we have decided to run this KAL until February 28th - which gives almost two months of knitting pleasure! As usual we have set up a Ravelry KAL thread to talk about our projects and to show of the finished results - we are also accepting entries from non-ravellers, just send us a picture of your shawl to 'knitalong at knitwithattiude dot com'. We will feature all finished shawls here on the blog - and one lucky winner will win back the the value of their purchase as a Knit with attitude voucher to spend on even more yarn!!! Ready, steady, needles set - GET KNITTING! ketchlarge3
