The Merrain MKAL has begun! Clues are very bite-sized, so it’s not too late to join in. Designed for one skein of solid or semi-solid fingering yarn. Good options include The Knitting Boutique Severn Fingering (75% BFL, 25% silk) and The Knitting Boutique Anacostia Fingering (100% merino), either of which you can get for 15% off here through the end of June. Look in the Kino Knits Ravelry group for a chatter thread and a spoiler thread or search on #MerrainMKAL on social media.
The Graduate Your Stash KAL is underway. Listen to episode 031 for a full run-down of the rules and prizes. Check out the chatter and FO threads on Ravelry. Post your progress with #GradYourStash2017. Feel free to double-dip with other KALs. In this episode, we have a prize for the chatter thread.
