There is an Owl About Yarn group on Ravelry. Did you know that? I always post a new thread for each podcast, and also post first there with shop news including discounts and giveaways.
At the moment we have an ongoing KAL. It is called “Socks and Shawls, oh my!” and, as suggested by the name, we are making things to go around our necks or to put on our feet! It started when my friend Marie offered to design and knit five beaded lace shawls for a wedding. I had already decided to knit socks all summer and I thought that maybe if other people crafted along with us, it might encourage us to reach our goals!
At the time of writing there are 97 completed projects from 21 people taking part! With just a couple of weeks remaining until the end of August deadline, I have started to think about prizes.
So far, there is a small drawstring project bag, a gorgeous hand made card from my friend Pam at Roath Crafts Market, a notions pouch sized tin of balm (great for dry hands for knitters!) from Nature’s Little Helpers (also at Roath Market) and a little random orange knit pouch that I made.
So why not come and join us? It’s a friendly group and I’d love to get to know more of you better. Plus, it’s the best way to make sure you don’t miss any exciting Owl About Yarn developments!
