Sign Up for MClub 2016 and a Phi For You Giveaway!

Have you heard about The M Club? I think it is my favorite project of the year!  I have a great time dreaming up skills to teach/finding unique yarns/and designing unexpected pieces! In 2015 we covered a ton of techniques, from placing beads, to mitered shaping, to uneven lace, gauge (a few times), multiple types of cast-ons, beaded yarnovers, traveling rib, brioche with beads (gasp), reversible cables, and a few more skills I can't share yet!
Clockwise: Mouette Scarflette, Phi for You, Meta Mystery KAL, and Migra Mitts
We are just wrapping up 2015's club with Circo Mystery KAL... the first clue released on Tuesday and everyone is happily knitting along!
One of this year's successes was Phi for You... a simple top-down Half-Pi Crescent shaped shawl with an increasing feather and fan inspired lace edging that is highlighted with placed beads.  This pattern is extra special as the yarn was designed and dyed SPECIFICALLY for it by CaterpillarGreen Yarns using the golden ratio to fit the stripes into the shawl's stitch count perfectly. You can read more about the first kit and working with Cat on this project here... it was truly AMAZING!

Since Phi For You was designed just for The M Club, the yarn and pattern aren't available until February 2016! I have gotten a TON of inquiries to see if I have any extra kits I can sell from both current M Club members and others who have seen it.  Unfortunately I only have two skeins left... so I decided to have a Phi for You kit giveaway to celebrate the end of 2015's club and the signups for next year : )! Seems only fair, right?

All you have to do to win one of these two kits is leave a comment below letting me know what you would like to learn should you join in on  2016's club! Don't forget to leave a way to get in touch with you. (Comments open until 9/22 at 5pm EST) And a clarification... this giveaway is for everyone!  You don't need to be part of the M Club (past, present or future) to enter!!!

I'll randomly choose two winners when I get back from this weekend's teaching trip to Knitter's Day Out in Harrisville, PA and Knitter's Edge in Bethlehem, PA on Tuesday Sept 22nd. I'll have my full kit line in the Flying Fibers Booth (#23) at KDO... I'm even bringing some brand new kits too! I'll also be signing books in their booth on Saturday during lunch time (12:45-1:15).

Comments are closed... I'll be posting winners on this Friday's giveaway post (9/25)!

I even modeled it at the student fashion show and got a great round of applause. I love all of Laura's designs and the MClub is a great way to make challenging designs and learn tons of new skills.

And I think I will be able to do Mclub again next year. I was in the first one but unfortunately missed this one, and my favorite project also, which was this pi shawl. So here's hoping. my ravelry name is also prettypinkzebra.

    I loved everything about Phi - Perfect patten, math inspired, feel of the yarn, colors!! My best friend would love it if I made it for her, too. I'm looking forward to more fun projects in the 2016 M Club. You always surprise me, I love learning new cast ons ... I love learning about new yarns ... I love learning the stories about your patterns & everything the you out together in the shipments ... Summertime already mentioned Entrelac - that would be fun tho learn from you ... More fingerless mitts would be fun ... What about a hat - don't this we've done a hat, yet - I'd love to learn to knit a great hat with a front brim that doesn't need a stiffened.

  46. I'm pretty much up for learning anything! I'm a self-taught, left-handed knitter and I've had to learn how to adjust or change up patterns to make them look the way they are supposed to. At other times I've just followed the pattern to the letter and called it good! Quirky backwards design elements! Thank you for this opportunity. :)

  47. This shawl is gorgeous! I wish I had known about it when the kits were available. I would, as others have already mentioned, like to learn entrelac. Also I would like to understand and learn how to do short rows..it would open up a whole new world of knitting projects for me.. when I see a pattern I like and it says short rows, I drop it like a hot tater...

  141. I would like to learn some more bind-off techniques, such as placing a bead as an accent on each bottom point of a shawl, doing a beaded picot bind-off and even an icord bind-off so I'd know how to end it correctly (I guess graft it?) with the side i-cord edge.

  158. Laura, thank you for the opportunity! Even though I have almost all your Craftsy classes and have made quite a few of the Shawls, beaded and not, I still have sooo much trouble and angst over circular CO with dpns and provisional CO😩. So much so, that I shy away from both. I need to face my fears with great guidance. Thank you,
