I Smell Snow KAL

In a love letter to the Gilmore Girls (and Lorelai’s love for snow), Little Bitty Delights is hosting a snow-inspired KAL. Between December 2nd and January 3rd, cast on and knit any pattern with snow-theme. Knit Stephen West’s Snow Flurries Hat or Knitting Expat’s Snow Day Shawl. Weekly prompts will encourage you to share WIP pictures, watch specific snow-filled Gilmore Girl episodes, drink a cup of coffee, and get your project off the needles.

Reach For the Stars

Purl Soho has announced the launch of their newest yarn collection, Comet. Created in partnership with yarn house Knit Collage, this jumbo weight yarn is woven with the signature Knit College blend, showing off texture, color, and out-of-this-world sparkle. Available in five colorways, use this to knit a scarf, pullover, or the free Kaleidoscope Cowl from Purl Soho.

Stitch Up Chicago

Instead of escaping to Florida in February for warmer temps, make plans to be in Chicago for the 4th annual Stitch Up fiber festival. Early bird registration is now open for the February 28-29 event, which includes meals, workshops, kits, and more to keep you more than busy and happy all weekend long.

CAST ON: Serenity Cardigan by Kate Oates

This drapey cardigan is the perfect transitional or layering piece for your wardrobe. Worked with fingering weight yarn, it is the perfect weight to keep you warm as warm day turns to cool night, or to wear under a jacket without overheating. Work this cardigan from the bottom up, adding lace detail to the hemline and subtle texture throughout the body.
