Are you all ready for our SUMMER SWEATER KNIT ALONG STARRING YOU post? Wahoo! So sorry for the delay on this. As mentioned in my ravelry group my computer - aka the d*m# Sierra update - is wreaking havoc with my computer. I've had nothing but issues and it's caused a delay in all things computer related. But the post is up now and this is my fave part of the KAL! Getting to see all your awesome projects! It's inspiring and just makes me so darn happy! As usual you guys have made some amazing and stunning projects!

This year's SSKAL was filled with lots of variations of styles! I love when there is a good mix of everything and also varieties of colors being used! Some years one color will dominate but this year there was a solid mix of everything! I also noticed a fair amount of kids patterns this year! I love the cute pics you guys got of your wee knits!
