A Craftsy Knit-A-Long Workshop!

I’m thrilled to announce my latest project with Craftsy, aka my latest OBSESSION! After teaching 3 lace classes with Craftsy I have designed a brand new summer pattern for Craftsy's June Mystery knit-along!
Craftsy Mystery Knit-A-Long's are a bit different than the ones I run in my Ravelry group. When you sign up you will receive in the mail one luxurious skein of yarn before June 1st. Then on June 1st you will be granted access to a special workshop I have designed just for the yarn. This workshop will contain the pattern, in-depth instructions and high quality close-up photos of each step. Even more, I will be responding to questions and providing help along the way.  I hope to inspire your summer knitting, expand your skills, AND create a new obsession while having FUN with Craftsy!

This mysterious design will be perfect for cool summer days and evenings… expect to create something light, ethereal, and wearable while building your knitting skills! Note: The pattern will not be delivered in clues... but all at once on June 1st!

I can't show you a "real" photo from the shoot... but I can give you an idea of just how windy it was the day we took the photos!

  2. I am officially addicted! How did this happen? I use to be a casual knitter - could take it or leave it. Now... my name is Sarah and I am a lace knitting addict.

  4. I don't need another shawl, but had to sign up for this one because I loved your Knitting With Beads class. I love my Accola shawl! Is this one going to have beads? (please)

    1. I know... it's the only downfall to this club! Some people in my Ravelry group have been offering to ship to Europe from the US... Maybe go there and see if you can strike a deal?

  10. I had sworn off KALs because my last two were less than expected but I have your class and have ordered your KAL. The yarn arrived yesterday... yum. I do have a question though, I need 10.5 needles, should I have circular or straight or does it matter?

    1. It doesn't matter, which ever you prefer to work with is fine! I'm so glad you like the yarn!

  11. Laura,

    Having enrolled in several of your Craftsy Classes, I was excited when I read that you were designing the June Mystery Knit Along. Then I got my yarn in the mail, SO soft!!!

    I can't wait for June; although I am still struggling along with Juego Clue #2 at the moment. I am pretty sure that I am going to have to wait to start the Craftsy Knit Along, just until I finish Juego. I LOVE the way it is working up. I'm hoping to catch-up on Juego over the weekend.

    Thanks for all you do for the Knitting Community.

  12. I'm a late joiner so I don't expect my yarn by June 1st. I just started listening to your lace class and will probably start the first shawl soon. I am planning on completing the KAL before I start. This will be my first with you and am looking forward to the experience!
