SOCIAL MEDIA #TTTKAL17
We all love to see each others yarns, project choices and swatches so please be sure to tag your projects on social media and Ravelry with #TTTKAL17 and #TTTKAL (if you'd like) so we can follow along during the knit along!
You may even find your project shared on the blog! So don't be shy - I promise this is one of the parts that makes this KAL so fun!
I'm not sure which pattern to make - do you have any suggestions?
We recommend the new Quince & Co. collections Linen Noir, Linen Verdant (and all their previous collections) for some very pretty options! Also, Norah Gaughn's new book Framework has some great patterns as well!
I've never made a summer garment before. What kind of yarns should I use?
We LOVE linen and cotton yarns for warm weather wear! Check out this handy post from Pom Pom Quarterly from last year's KAL all about Choosing Yarns for Warm Weather!
A few we adore are Quince & Co.'s Sparrow and Kestrel for linen weights and their Willet for cotton. There are so many lovely fibres to knit with for summer yarns and we will be exploring them more throughout the KAL.
