Skacel’s Color of the Year

Skacel has named their 2nd Annual Color of the Year: Coral. This energizing colorway was chosen for its potential to rejuvenate and innovate our creative selves. Over the next year, Coral will be available on HiKoo yarns including, CoBaSi DK Tonal, Concentric, Concentric Cotton, Simplicity, and Simpliworsted. Plus, patterns celebrating this color will also be released throughout the year.

20 For 2021 Challenge

Curious Handmade is hosting another 20 For Knitting Challenge, except this time it’s 20 For 2021 instead of 20 For 2020. Obviously. Not so much of a challenge as it is an encouragement to expand your knitting queue or skill set, use 20 for 2021 to finish a WIP, make a hat, or tackle cables. Or use a non-superwash yarn or make an epic, bucket list item. After checking off a “challenge” submit your finished project in the Ravelry thread for a chance to win monthly prizes.
