Updates on Knitting Along.

We had three winners for last quarter's knit-along (cottageQ2KAL15). Congratulations Lydia, Pat and Julie!

For the third quarter, rather than hosting a KAL of our own, we're encouraging y'all to participate in KALs hosted by two of our favorite groups on Ravelry.

First, the Yarniacs Podcast Colors of Fall 2015 KAL. You can read all about it in their forum, but the gist is that you knit something with one or more of the Pantone Fall 2015 palette and post an FO photo of it styled for fall. The KAL started on June 21 (Summer Solstice) and ends on September 23 (Autumnal Equinox).

And Kirsten Kapur's Through The Loops Summer Shawl KAL. Again, Kirsten has shared all the details in that linked post along with a coupon code to get 20% off eligible patterns (the code expires August 1, so act quickly!) Kathy and I are both participating. Kathy is knitting Saranac and I'm knitting Rivington (as soon as I get a few more things off the needles!) One of my colors has a lot of that Pantone Oak Buff in it, so I'm hoping to enter it in the Yarniacs' KAL as well. We'll see!

Kirsten's KAL runs through September 15, so there's still plenty of time to join in.

We'll be back in September with news about our Q4 KAL. In the meantime, we're still gathering informally on Friday afternoons for knitting and needlepoint and - as always! - fun conversation around the yellow table. We hope you'll join us!
