KAL : October Affection

Oh, how excited I am! Jennifer from Jaykayknits (check out her blog, it’s really beautiful!) and I are starting a KAL! My first KAL. I’ve been wanted to take part of one for a long time now, but each time I was submerged with other projects, school (yeah, that was a long time ago!), work and now Little Max. Yet since he arrived, I’ve been knitting more, squeezing it during naptime. And working on one project at a time really helps.

On October 1st, Jennifer and I will cast on for the Color Affection shawl by Veera Välimäki (yes, ANOTHER one by Veera!). Post your progress on Instagram with the hash tag #octoberaffection. It’ll be fun to see all your yarn choices!

Speaking of which, I don’t think I ever told you about my Instagram account. You should follow Jennifer’s too! It’s even on Instagram we had the idea for this KAL. She posted one she just made, I commented (of course, it’s gorgeous!), and from one thing to another, we decided to start this KAL! Can you tell how excited I am?

I’ve bought the yarn for this shawl a long time ago. More then 2 years! It’s so sad Springtree Road doesn’t dye anymore. I’m really glad I got my hands on some of her gorgeous skeins before she closed down! I really like this color combination : soft, light and calming, yet not plain. I can’t wait to cast on!

Check out Jennifer’s yarn choice, it’ll be gorgeous!
