As mentioned in the post below – we were completely overwhelmed and so so so happy about how well our Homeward Bound Shawl had been received – that we decided to prolong our celebrations with a knit-a-long happening over on our Instagrams! The Homeward Bound Shawl is available as a kit in three gorgeous colourways in our online store, or you can get it as a single pattern on Ravelry.
The KAL started May 5th – but doesn’t end until June 19th so there is plenty of time to join in on the fun, and this is what you have to do:
- Post any progress pictures using the hashtag #homewardboundshawl, every picture is an entry to the prize draw – so the more the better.
- Make sure you follow both Knit with attitude and Natalie Selles, and tag both of us on your posted picture.
That is it! On June 20th we will draw two winners from all the post entered between May 5th and June 19th. One of you will receive 4 skeins (a total of 200g) of the brand new CoopKnits Socks Yeah! DK in the colours of your choice, and the second prize is a pattern of free choice from Natalie Selles along with one of her super pretty draw string project bags.
The story behind this beautiful Homeward Bound scarf was that I had to pull it all out and start again. However, so pleased I did because 1. My tension is much better. 2. Then intarsia is looking much better. 3. Got to get this right!!! Thank you @leeleetea for designing this gorgeous shawl I'm loving this new experience in knitting? Yarn supplied by @knitwithattitude
As the knit-a-long has already begun we are really enjoying all the lovely Homeward Bound projects that are beginning to pop up over on Instagram – just have a look – we can’t wait to see more!
And … this is Maya’s progress so far, ready to tackle the stripes section.
