Since we only have a few days before that April 30th deadline for the Merry KAL and it’s fabulous GIVEAWAYS this month, I thought I would share something special today to inspire anyone who hasn’t finished up (or started…) their ball yet. For those who have — they look great and as always I am so inspired by your work!
As a treat — I hope — today you get to visit me at my kitchen table and see stranded colorwork on my needles & in my hands. This is not an instructional video, nor is it me being super precious about knitting perfectly for you. It’s just a glimpse of the materials I am using & my personal knitting style. Please keep in mind that while I have often photographed my hands for class handouts this is my first ever knitting video. I did not have much time for fancy editing because I wanted to get this video up sooner than later. I did my best to not ramble too much and to keep everything in focus and to knit as naturally as is possible with a camera & tri-pod between my hands — no small feat for me on any count! I promise to work on my video skills in the future, but for today I hope you enjoy this little clip.
Now remember next Tuesday is the cut-off to be entered in our GIVEAWAY for the April Merry KAL Christmas ball — it is co-sponsored by the wonderful Martine at iMake, so of course the prizes are lovely. As always, you are welcome to knit the ball I have chosen or any ball of you like — keeping in the spirit of this very flexible KAL all you have to do is knit one Christmas ball, share it on our Ravelry thread, & you will be entered into the mix to win one of our great prizes. It doesn’t get easier or more fun!
