04 Jun Let's Get Colour Affected (the KAL countdown is on!)
With the Rock Island Shawl knitalong wrapped up, and the Que Sera knitalong on the home stretch, it’s time to look ahead to the Color Affection shawl knitalong which starts in just a couple weeks – Saturday June 15th!
I knit my first Color Affection last year during the London Summer Olympics, and thought I’d never knit another. But the opportunity to play with colour in this way is just too intriguing to resist. Plus, the miles and miles of garter stitch (and zero need to count stitches) make this a truly mindless knit (very summer vacation-appropriate!).
This past Saturday, yarn-dyer, friend, and general awesome person Kim McBrien from Indigodragonfly made a stop at the store to teach an impressively thorough Colour Theory class, and delivered some amazing trios of Color Affection-worthy sock-weight skeins. Without further ado, here’s some glamour shots of the ones that haven’t been snatched up yet:
“Geekgasm” in MCN sock – 1 skein each of: “Is the Money Okay? Did They Hurt the Money (Buffy)”, “Curse Your Sudden but Inevitable Betrayal! (Firefly)”, and “TARDIS (Doctor Who)”
