KAL: Galorealong


Announcing my first-ever KAL - knit-along, that is. I'm finally over my grief, thanks to finding five beautiful skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Purewash DK in stunning shades of blue, teal and violet, and I'm ready to face down recreating my lost Galore sweater. And I'm hoping you'll want to knit along with me!

I'm going to host this KAL over on Instagram, so first things first, come follow me there - I'm stephanieearple.

Who can join: Anyone with an Instagram account.

What we're knitting: The Galore sweater by Stephanie Earp. Here's the Ravelry pattern page.

When: Start date will be July 30th 2018 and the KAL will end on October 12, 2018. (I'm planning to make this my Rhinebeck sweater.)

Share: Tag your Instagram yarn choice and in-progress shots with the hashtag #galorealong and be sure to tag me @stephanieearple so I don't miss them. Tag your finished object post with #galorealongFO and tag me @stephanieearple by October 12 to be entered to win prizes.

Prizes: I'll draw a random winner for a prize pack including a wrist ruler from I Love Handles, Knitter's Helper Progress Keepers from Twill & Print and some squishy, pretty yarn yet to be determined!

My yarns are Tanis Fiber Arts Purewash DK in Cobalt, Teal, Cosmic Night, Tartan and Lightning

Flying Vee Giveaway!

I was so thrilled to work with both these yarns from two indie dyers I admire with such different points of view. Stephanie at Asylum Fibers has a very cool gothic thing going on (I mean, just check out her colour names) and Annie at Knitting It Up draws her inspiration from all things pop culture (her 'Friends' themed fade kit is stunning.)

And both of them have offered a complete kit to make the Flying Vee for this giveaway. Thank you so much!

It's pretty simple: buy the pattern on Ravelry anytime between its release on Thursday April 26, 2018 and midnight EST May 7, 2018 and you are entered into a random draw for one of the two kits. The Asylum Fibers kit is for the same colourways I used in my sample: Vacant Stare (black) and Transorbital (speckled white/pink/blue/black). The Knitting It Up kit will be customized for the winner, who can consult with Annie and view her pallete to choose a colourway.

A few caveats:
- In Store Sales (which I love and appreciate so much!) will not qualify for the draw.
- Customers using a discount or promo code will not be entered in the draw.

Thanks for checking out my work and find me on Rav if you have questions!
