Spring Knit-along

Spring is coming, and I am all too happy for it. We already have some blossoms coming out on the trees near the house. For me the spring officially starts when the magnolia tree outside our windows will show its gorgeous blossoms, and that can happen any day now. The buds are getting bigger and bigger.

I have started working on several springy designs, having gorgeous yarn at hand helps a lot too. But before I get into showing you new pieces in works, I want to mention here that I am hosting a new knit-along. And it is not without some competitions and prizes.

The whole event will take place on

Photography: I love seeing everyone’s FOs, but nothing makes the project stand out more than creative photography.
The prize is any ravelry pattern (mine or not).

  1. YEAH! This sounds fun! I have some great yarn already I'm just waiting for the pattern I would really like to do to be available. :)
