They say there is strength in numbers and anyone who has ever participated in a Knit Along would surely agree. There is something about the camaraderie that arises in bustling chat rooms and the knowledge that hundreds or more people are working on the same project at the same time that fuels the creative fire in knitters.
The latest Knit Along from Wool Addicts is sure to spark your interest. A stunning afghan comprised of twenty-four blocks that isn’t just visually stunning, the time frame to make it is pretty impressive as well!
Introducing the Million Moments KAL. Beginning November 26th, every day Wool Addicts will share a pattern on their Instagram, Facebook and blog. On December 24th, knitters will collectively cast off and have themselves a finished blanket or a present for a loved one. That’s right – twenty-four blocks in twenty-nine days – are you in?
Knit with three colours of Wool Addicts Respect, this afghan is super soft, super squishy and super durable. A sublime blend of 42% fine merino wool, 30% superfine alpaca and 28% nylon, Respect wears its name well. The earthy combination of colours is subtle yet sassy and coordinate with a vast range of shades. Denim, Wood and Brick are the newest colours available in Respect and we simply adore how well they compliment one another.
Don’t be intimidated by the time frame! Respect is a worsted weight yarn and knits up quickly in this afghan using a variety of different sized needles. You’ll find the anticipation of each new design will drive you to complete the blocks in record time, and the variety of stitch patterns addictive, inspiring and engaging. You may just surprise yourself and have a brand new, cozy blanket to curl up in for the holidays!
With pattern instructions available in English, French, Dutch, German and Danish, knitters from all over the world will be participating in the Million Moments KAL – what a great way to globally bring like minded people together!
If this KAL sounds like it’s up your alley, be sure to register for the Wool Addicts newsletter for all the KAL information and then head on over to your LYS to get, in the words of Aretha Franklin, a little Respect!
