Spring KAL

Sunshine and tree blossoms… Longer days and knitting in the park…

Springtime to Knit

For us at TIK that all calls a Spring Knit-a-Long!

Previous KALs (Knitalongs) have included the Annis and Luna Moth Shawls. We’re going for garments this time (who doesn’t need a cotton cardigan in their Spring/Summer collection?) and we’ve been absolutely enchanted by the new Louisa Harding “Ondine” patterns. There are two cardigans in particular that we’d see as being staples in anyone’s wardrobe:

Breaker:

Breaker

and Clam:

Clam

So, rather than choose, we’re opting for both!

Here’s how it will work:

The start date for the KAL will be Wednesday 6th of April.

Pop in to the shop (or email/phone us) on or before that date and choose one of the cardigans and your shade of Ondine yarn. Buy the yarn and get the pattern book *completely free*.

The KAL will run until Weds 18th May and everyone who finishes their cardigan by that date will be entered into a draw for a great goody bag prize. Just look at the great selection Julie won last time around…!

Knitting assistance will be available every Wednesday lunchtime at the shop and virtually (24/7) through the dedicated thread in our TIK Ravelry group.

We’re also going to experiment with Twitter, and take KAL questions every Wednesday lunchtime from those who can’t make it into the shop in person. Twitter users can follow us by clicking here.

Great yarn, free pattern book, sparkling support, fabulous camaraderie and a completely-untested-fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants-Twitter element. This KAL should be a lot of fun! 🙂

  1. Ohhhh, that’s really tempting. Might be what I need to get me out of my knitting slump, and Clam (a) is lovely looking, and (b) would work nicely as a maternity cardigan.

  2. Oh, oh I LOVE this!!!! Breaker for me, tho I’ve never done buttons before!

    Must go look at colours!! And no one tell B, lols!

  3. Ciara

    OHH count me in – I need a KAL to move on my knitting projects – this will be my first garment – a change from socks and scarves!
