Happy May! This month there’s a KAL (knit-a-long) happening over at Ravelry, for my pattern, Ben Weatherstaff’s Friend.
While this little robin is a quick knit, I like to keep things low-key. We’re all busy and I’ve fallen behind on many a KAL… so while I’ll post advice weekly, I urge everyone to knit on their own schedule! There’s no being late to join or falling behind. Refer to the tips when they work for you!
Each Tuesday in May, I’ll check in at the KAL thread with advice and suggestions for each step in this pattern.
Week 1 (Tues 06 May) – Yarn options & Knitting beak & feet
Week 2 (Tues 13 May) – Knitting the wings
Week 3 (Tues 20 May) – Knitting the start of body
Week 4 (Tues 27 May) – Knitting the entire body & finishing
Don’t have your own copy of the book yet? While I highly recommend the entire book, What (Else) Would Madame Defarge Knit?, you can now purchase just this one pattern as an instant PDF download (other single patterns are coming soon).
Or if you’re at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival this weekend you can buy a copy of the book at the Cooperative Press booth!
Where will I be this weekend? I’ll be in Indianapolis at The National NeedleArts Association Summer Trade Show.
