Our first KAL/CAL has come to an end and those who participated will be wearing beautiful new shawls in the cooler weather.  We have had a lot of fun and it has been fabulous to be able to host all the merriment!  Thanks so much to all who participated and contributed their thoughts and progress shots in our Ravelry Group thread.  Sharing our knitting highs and lows adds a wonderful sense of extended community to what we do.

So let the drum roll begin ……

The ‘knit’ winner has made a beautiful Moonraker Shawl by Melanie Berg

Crocheter:   Mary from Melbourne, Vic
Yarn:  cleverly made with various leftovers from her stash!

Both Deborah and Mary have won a bottle the wonderful Soak wool wash and a shawl pin from Hornvarefabrikken.  The shawl pins are made from African Cow Horn and have a lovely provenance that you can read about on their website – what was once a waste product has been made into something useful and beautiful.

Congratulations to both our winners – your shawls are very, very lovely.

Happy ‘yarning’
Karen.
