Sweater Weather KAL Midpoint!
We're officially at the half way point in our KAL so I thought it was a good time to check in. We already have one finished object and Ashley is making excellent headway on both her Weekender sweater by Andrea Mowry and her Playdate Cardigan for Mila by Tincanknits. I can tell Ashley's still has sweaters on the brain because she keeps sending me these gorgeous sweaters on Instagram. I'm pretty much guaranteeing that if Ashley had Mrs. Weasley's knitting skills, those needles would be knitting while she slept and I would be rolling in hand knit sweaters.
If you want to participate in the KAL and you're looking for inspiration take a look at our bundles of Pullovers and Cardigans on Ravelry where Ashley has curated some of her favourites. Since she put this together her list has grown. Here is some of my favourites that we’ve recently seen on Instagram:
- The boxy cardigan – Yarn Over Berlin
- Calyx – Elizabeth Doherty
- Hamilton – Josee Paquin
- Trailing Lace – Kate Oates
- Belfast – Irina Anikeeva
There's definitely tons of time to get started if you haven't as yet and today is the very last day of our sale on superwash sport and worsted which is currently 20% off with the coupon code SWKAL2018. Just to tempt you a little more take a look at our prizes:

RSBSY is also launching a new monthly contest. You know how much we love seeing our Red Sock Blue Sock Yarn at work so, starting this March, during the month, all you need to do is take a photo of your current/finished project using Red Sock Blue Sock Yarn and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #redsockbluesockyarn. If you have a private account, simply take a screenshot and DM us to qualify. On the first day of the following month we will choose a winner at random who will receive a $25 gift certificate towards their yarn purchase (shipping not included).
That’s all for me folks! I’m hoping the next time we talk I’ll have a Paige's little Anna’s Summer Cardigan to show you all (fingers crossed). Until then, PEACE to you and your fam and happy knitting!
