29 Jun Summer 2017 KAL Launch: Find Your Fade (JP Edition!)
The wait is over! Summer has officially graced us with her presence here in Boston and so our summer KAL is ready to launch! Join us this Friday, June 30th right here at the shop as we cast on the Find Your Fade Shawl by Andrea Mowry featuring three specially-conceived colorways from Renee at Spun Right Round (you can read more about these yarns and the woman behind them in our interview with Renee right here). Each of these bundles are featured below and are available in the shop alongside individual speckled skeins.
While you’re checking out these fabulous skeins, be sure to sign up for the knitalong while you’re here to make sure you get all the KAL updates as well as emotional and technical support. You can find all the details on how this knitalong works right here on the event page.
Our Find Your Fade knitalong promises to be a pretty epic one–the shawl is a large snuggly beast that alternates between simple lace sections and garter sections where you can blend one color into the next by alternating two skeins. It’s been storming the crafty internets over the past few months and makes a great in-person knitalong because you not only get to enjoy your own fade creation, but the unique colors blossoming from everyone knitting alongside you to provide an ever-changing string of entertainment and inspiration.
Cosmic Trip (from L to R): Electric Pop, Banshee, Crowded Cloud, Idle Gossip, Newsprint
Plus, since this is a larger project, we’ll be hosting the KAL during our Friday stitch nights throughout the summer so there will be lots of time for emotional and practical support as you dig into The Fade.
Scrunchies and Side Ponies: Motion in the Ocean, Glow Bug, Nervous Breakdown, Crybaby, Mintalicious
Our in-house color magician Kate worked with Renee to put together three colorways that are juuust right for the Find Your Fade shawl–with JP appropriate gradients of course–that include shocks of neon, moody gloaming greys and mustards, honeyed warm tones, and supa supa smooth transitions. Since there are limited quantities of these, we’re selling them in-shop only for our loyal locals, so stop in quick to snap one up before they’re gone!
The Cat’s Pajamas (from L to R): Cat Man Do, Mean Eyed Cat, Fierce Poodles, Exploder, Pretty Things
Additionally, we also have big fresh batches of all our other favorite fingering and sock yarns to help you build the gradient of your dreams or even make our custom bundles your own: Madeline Tosh Unicorn tails, Malabrigo Allegria, Manos del Uruguay speckles and tonals, The Fiber Company’s Meadow, and Berroco’s Ultra Fine Alpaca. Don’t hesitate to stop in and let us help you build your own gradient–it’s quickly turning into one of our favorite customer requests!
We hope to see you this Friday in the shop for the Find Your Fade KAL launch and invite you to jump in on the fun too in our Ravelry group or by using these hashtags: #jpksKAL #FyFkalJPedition
