    ** New Pattern Alert ** Essence Shawl

    Are you ready to start a great new shawl this summer?

    Essence Shawl is now live, just in time for some summer knitting. This soft and squishy garter stitch shawl with the simple eyelet stripes and lace panel will be great to work on during all your summer adventures. I hope you'll enjoy both knitting and wearing this beautiful shawl as much as I do.

    We made it though March and enjoyed a wonderful long weekend with family and friends. Easter here was pretty laid back and full of fun adventures with my kiddos. What did you all get up to? I do know some of you were able to finish some wips and shared some great progress posts of your sweaters for our Winter Sweater KAL.

    Take a look at some of the fabulous knitted sweaters and find out who won the great prizes!

    Surprise Party Shawl by Helen Stewart
    Hey guys, 
    Welcome back! Ash and I had an awesome weekend last weekend! I decided that it was unfair that I didn't get March break anymore and decided to take an extended weekend to Ottawa to visit the fam! I even made it down early enough to have an impromptu knit night with a couple of friends that I don't get to see nearly often enough. We had a blast! We ate some amazing food and I learned the hard way that gin and tonic should never be mixed with knitting. I cast on the second mitten of my Log Cabin Mitts and realised too late that the spiral of the logs flips directions after the centre and had to purl the next couple logs to prevent a weird gap. I'm definitely going to have to try this pattern again (sans gin) to find out exactly where I went awry. In any case, both mitts are done and blocked and the ends are in the process of being woven in. (To be honest, that was supposed to be yesterday's project but the train rides in and out of Toronto were so comfy, I managed to get two solid naps in.)
    All of this gets away from the real point of today's blog, which is THIS BEAUTY:

    Sweater Weather KAL Midpoint!

    Heeeeey Guys!!!

    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:
