It's hard to believe we're coming up on our Sixth Annual New Year's knitalong on our blog. I'm excited to reconnect with old friends and hopefully meet some new! We always have so much fun (here's a snippet of some of what we accomplished last year ~ it will take your breathe away!).
For 2014 we've chosen Spire as our way of ringing in the new year and celebrating the friendships that our knitalongs have brought us. Spire is a center start, square lace shawl designed by Leila Raabe for Brooklyn Tweed ~ Allison at BT was kind enough to give me permission to use Jared Flood's photos in this blog post. Completely drool-inducing...the shawl and the photos, don't you agree?
Our official cast on date is January 1st so you have plenty of time to gather your materials (and probably change your mind about your yarn choice at least a dozen times). As usual, our knitalongs are stress free ~ no deadlines (we still have one person finishing up Leaves of Grass!) & blogging along is encouraged but not required. If you'd like to join us, leave a comment below ~ if you've knitted with us before, you know the routine. If this will be your first time, there's a tutorial on how to be a guest blogger (thanks again, Kelly!) once I've sent you your official invitation to participate.
I'm so glad that this annual tradition has continued and grown and look forward to knitting with you all after the stress of the holiday season has subsided. Please join us this year ~ we'd love to have you! Here's to knitting and friendship in 2014! ~ Melissa
