Have you looked at all of the beautiful outfits in the OAL FO thread on Ravelry? There’s some seriously impressive work there, and the OAL exceded my expectations. A surprising number of people knit their first sweater or sewed their first dress. I was really impressed! This morning Lauren announced the winners of the OAL prizes. Winners get an Untangling Knots pattern of their choice and a sewing pattern of their choice from Indie Stitches. Many of you asked if we’ll be doing this again next year, and that’s the plan! It was a ton of fun, and I want to say thank you to everyone who participated and made it such a great event.

Now that the OAL is over, I’ve started planning the fall KAL. It will be a simple KAL, but instead of just choosing the knitting project myself, I set up a few polls to let everyone help decide what we’ll be doing. Keep an eye on that thread because another poll may be added to choose the final pattern.

  • Thanks for hosting – I’d definitely be up for taking part in an Autumn one! I’ve only been knitting for a few months and your patterns are brilliant for a newbie knitter – cute and clearly written – it’s made me really enthusiastic about knitting more!

  • Yay, I would love to see a fall KAL! This past OAL that you and Lauren co-hosted was my first time participating in this sort of thing (and my very first time knitting a sweater) and I had such a blast Can’t wait to see what you have planned for the fall! 🙂
