From the Kino Knits Ravelry “Introduce Yourself” thread:

FOs

New hat design – coming in September.

WIPs

Lace Saddle Tee by Lisa S. Rowe ($6.50 on Ravelry, originally published in the Summer 2010 issue of Interweave Knits) on U.S. 4 (3.5 mm) in Fyberspates Scrumptious 4-ply/Sport (55% merino, 45% silk in colorway 312 – Dandelion and Burdock).

Check out the Kino Knits YouTube channel, crochet provisional cast-on tutorial video. The channel also contains a hidden video tutorial for my Springs to Mind hat.

Long cowl using Canon Hand Dyes Nancy Drew mini-skein set – currently writing up the design (more of a recipe). Contact me if you are interested in testing.

Plotting/KALs

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. Random.org chose post 33, by doreenmacl, to win a copy of the Slip and Swirl socks pattern by Kristi of the In a Sknit video podcast. Thank you to Kristi!
