February KAL's Coming UP!

     My blog post about last month January KAL's Coming Up was chocked full of KAL's (Knit Alongs) and February is a little thin on the list.  You might want to take a look at January's list too because many of those KALs run till March, and they're lovely.   I get my list from KAL Fanatics and probably more will be added before the month's out.  But I wanted to get what was out there so people would have time to get their yarn and needles. Have fun, get some great ideas, save them for a later day if your life is full of projects, but most of all be inspired!

February MKAL 2017

"When the Holidays are over, it is time to treat yourself and relax with a gorgeous gradient shawl!
'Love yourself, whatever makes you different, and use it to make you stand out. Mine is my voice and the fact that I’m gay: well, the fact that I’m flamboyantly gay.' - Ross Mathews 

Gay, straight, bi, Thai… I think we can all agree, we make some amazingly distinct shawls!

This is an heart shaped mystery shawl for the month of February and full of bold sts and beads. This shawl is worked from the top down and the mystery is hosted in the bunnymuff group! "

Snowmelt Shawl MKAL


Pattern goes on pre-sale on Monday 23 January 2017 at a special Early Bird Price. First clue released Thursday 2 February 2017.

"Melt into spring with 8 weeks of knitting, camaraderie and mystery!"
"It's that moment between the last slow weeks of winter and the first sweet days of spring. There’s a gentle tension in the air as the thaw begins: the cosy joys of hibernation give way to a pleasant restlessness. Your heart stirs and the sap starts to run. This is a season of growth and change, but it begins quietly, deep in the frozen ground, before the last of the ice has even disappeared."
"This time of year feels nearly miraculous. It offers a chance to renew the dreams that have slept for so long beneath a blanket of snow. The earth is preparing to surprise itself again with a wild swell of springtime creativity. It’s a call to adventure and an invitation to stretch our own creative powers. It’s time to uncover what this fresh new season has in store."
"The Snowmelt Shawl Mystery Knit-Along is all about setting aside some time to nourish our creativity together. The design unfolds at a gentle pace, week by week, as each clue is released, ending with a stunning new accessory to treasure through many seasons. This shawl is a tribute to the slow process and deep satisfaction of creating something beautiful."
"Snowmelt captures the romantic style with a contemporary edge that knitters have come to expect from Curious Handmade designs. Stretches of satisfying texture and simple, effective lace make this a deeply engaging pattern that will surprise you and keep you guessing as you move through the clues. It’s approachable for adventurous beginners but interesting enough to delight veteran shawl knitters. No matter where you’re starting from, this MKAL is the perfect way to celebrate the unfolding of a new season and the fresh energy of growth and discovery."
