Slipstravaganza Shawl – Stephen West MKAL
Pattern: Slipstravaganza MKAL | Stephen West
Yarn: agirlandherwool | Sock base | Speckled Orchid, Hibiscus Tea, Dragonfly and London Fog
Needles: Size 2
Gauge: IDK
Cast on: 10/9/2020
Cast off goal: Not too long after the MKAL ends

Check out Monday’s post if you want to read more about my progress on this shawl. I just finished clue 2, so I am behind, but I don’t want to post spoilers just in case. Kits are still available in the shop. In addition, these colors are now available on most bases!

The non-spoiler recap is – I’m loving it! It’s been really fun to knit without being stressful and I love how the colors are working out. The rows are simple but create a really fun design. I definitely recommend it if you haven’t looked at it!

Check out Monday’s post if you want to read more about my progress on this shawl. I also just finished up clue 2 for this shawl and so I’m definitely behind, but I still don’t want to create any spoilers just yet. Definitely am enjoying it as well and I want to finish it quickly so that I can start wearing it. It’s getting cold outside and this is the perfect match for the cold weather!

I’m still on the first foot. I’ve been so busy on the MKALs that I haven’t spent too much time on these. They are my project for while I’m dyeing, and so I am getting close to the heel.

1. Preemie hat – I’ve mostly finished a preemie hat, which I will include in a charity knitting recap coming soon!
2. Spinning – I haven’t spun.
3. Northeasterly – I have not worked on this as I need to pick out more colors. I’m really bad at working on projects if they are not ready to go.

1. Neat Ripple – This is on hold until I finish up the charity items with the colors that I have used so far.

What’s Next?
ADVENT! I plan to knit up the gradient advent that I dyed up this year. Otherwise, we’ll see. I have a lot of WIPs right now and not many plans beyond that.

Go check out Ambah O’Brien’s advent patterns. I’m so honored that she designed not 1, but 2 patterns with my yarn.

The Radvent Cowl is technically a DK weight cowl, but Ambah used my sock base and held the skeins double. She used 12 mini skeins from an expanded version of the Faerie Shadow gradient set. I’ve named the green half Faerie Garden. Kits are available now!

Ambah also designed a wrap that has not yet been released yet, so stay tuned. I can tell you that she used an expanded version of my Rose Gold gradient set! It’s a 24 skein mini skein gradient set. It’s available now in the shop too!

November mystery yarn clubs are now available
until November 15th. Grab them now!

Check out the shop here. There are some great kits for shawls and socks along with good pairings for sweaters. Let me know if you need help with some color selections.

Check out my latest project recap, which a special guest star – my mom!
