Suddenly colour

Look, it just happened, ok? First, there was a blog post on our trio of Color Affections and then it exploded.

Before we knew it, there’s a sudden Knit-Along happening. All over the place, people are gleefully choosing yarns, burrowing into stash, mixing colours. We’ve got a thread over in the This Is Knit group on Ravelry to discuss plans and progress, and there’s a lot of chatter on twitter (you’re following @ThisIsKnit, yes?).

So why not leap in and join us? You’ll need yarn in three colours – most people are using fingering weight, but you don’t need enormous amounts of any of them. A quick browse through existing projects reveals that 275m of colour 1, 250m of colour 2 and 275m of colour 3 should do it. Over in the KAL thread, January 28th is the suggested start date, with February 25th as a finish line.

There’s a couple of relevant groups that are goldmines of information on Ravelry: Wingspan, Color Affection and More KAL, which started as a KAL group but which has continued on afterwards and Stripes Galore KAL, another former KAL thread devoted to Veera Välimäki’s lovely clever striped designs.

Three colours, toning or contrasting, and lots and lots of soothing garter stitch. What could be nicer? The only question is: can we stop at just one?
