Summer Solstice KAL 2013

Hello, knitalongers!  Time to start thinking about our next kal.  We've chosen Quill, a Jared Flood Shetland style square hap shawl.
The pattern is available on Brooklyn Tweed's website here or it can also be purchased on Ravelry here.
The shawl can be made in two sizes, a smaller solid color version and a larger multicolor version.
Cast on date is tentatively the first day of summer, June 21st.  If that's not enough time to get your yarn ready, don't sweat it.  I doubt anyone will have this kal done in less than a week (other than Kelli!) so latecomers are welcome!  I don't have yarn for this project so I'm not ready quite yet!  And as always, there is no deadline.  It's a pressure-free go-at-your-own-pace knitalong.
I'm excited to see how many different versions we can come up with for this knit!  It's such a great pattern to personalize with color and yarn will be very inspiring to play along this time!
Comment below if you're joining us and if you're not added to the blog already as a guest author, I'll make sure to get you on board as soon as possible!
Newbies, if you've never blogged before, there's a page on the sidebar of the blog with a simple tutorial to help with your first post once you've been included.
I'm really looking forward to knitting with everyone ~ I know there a few of us chomping at the bit to get this piece started!
~ Happy Knitting!  Melissa

  1. I'm in!!!! I already have my yarn and I can't wait to start.

  2. My local yarn shop is having a big anniversary sale this weekend. I'll see what I can find there to use to take part in this knitalong. I'm not officially signing up yet, but will let you know. The shawl is beautiful!
