Thursday - Upcoming October KALS

Once again I give you a preview of next month's KALs to come.  I'm finding the only dangerous thing about this is that it tempts me to start something else new!  Have fun looking and being tempted!

Latvian Sampler KAL

Latvian Sampler kal by Wieke van Keulen 
Requires sign up here and you may need to use google translate or some other means to translate the page. 
The Latvian Sampler will be a new knit-a-long consists of 43 parts. It's fair-isle work.  In October 2016 the Latvian Sampler starts as a kal (knit-a-long). The Sampler is knit in the round, and at the end of the 43 weeks, you will have a lovely scarf. English and Dutch. 
 Begins October 

Note - One project follower suggests Knit Picks Palette Yarn for a more locally sourced yarn for this Latvian Scarf, colors of the yarn are given when we join the KAL.  

You will also need a circular needle in #2.5/3.0 mm and #4/3.5 mm, one source  - Caspian Interchangeable Circular Knitting Needle Tips and Caspian Fixed Circular Knitting Needles.

Some notes - I just signed up and it does take patience navigating the Dutch site with English translation -you're going to learn a few dutch words to do this.  You need to create an account to access and "buy" the pattern.  It is either for Free or a donation (she mentions the tremendous amount of work this has been for her, if you can't give now, we've got 43 more weeks to do so! ) I think the effort to get the pattern worth it - just think of it as a treasure hunt.  Create an account, look for the above drop down for the KAL and you'll get through! Good luck.
