Happy New Year! It's that time of year in the Ravelry Blue Peninsula group — time to relax after the busy holidays and cast on something special just for you.
The Treat Yourself KAL is a chance to knit something beautiful that you needn't give away. Any of my designs is eligible for this KAL, as long as you're making it for yourself. Sweaters, socks, cowls, mitts, shawls — cast on what you'd like, in colors and yarns that make your heart sing.
We'll have prizes at the end, awarded randomly to finished projects — lovely yarns, teas, and bath salts (in keeping with the self-care theme):
The Treat Yourself KAL starts Sunday, January 14 and ends Sunday, February 25. Although we're not casting on until the 14th, you can join the KAL now to start chatting about yarns, pattern ideas, and your favorite ways to treat yourself.
If you're not sure what to make, maybe my next cowl design will inspire you? Called Waverleigh, it's a warm, long cowl (54 inches/137 cm circumference by 9.25 inches/23 cm deep) that uses 365 yds/333 m of DK weight yarn. Look for it soon — definitely before the KAL begins.
I hope you can join us and cast on a sweater or accessory you'll treasure for years to come!
