westknitskal

We’re crazy for the new #westknitskal! Stephen West has released three awesome shawl patterns, and we’ve been dreaming up fun colorways. At top right is Jaime’s picks for Lumpy Space. She’s using a mix of Tosh Dandelion, Jill Draper Cloud, Istex Lodband Lopi, and neon orange St Magnus DK angora/wool. In the center Katy is using Tosh Unicorn Tails in a mix of neons and neutrals for Vertices Unite. At the sides Nathalie played with two fun options for Lumpy Space, both a mix of Tosh Merino Light and Manos Alegria. We’d be happy to help you pick yarn for your shawl! @westknits @madelinetosh @jillmakesstuff #yarn

I finally finished my Doodler shawl this week! This was the Westknits 2015 Mystery Knit along (MKAL) that started in November last year. I’d been really looking forward to finally knitting one of Stephen West’s magnificent shawl designs, and it turned out all I needed was his fabulously camp promo video to get me casting on :) This was a fun and inventive shawl to knit and easier than it maybe…

Still searching for the perfect yarn combo for the #westknitsKAL2014 I have this amazing boucle I handdyed… But I am wondering if I will want to gouge my eyes out, knitting with this yarn on a size 6 needle? I love the swatch tho. And, will it feel crazy itchy to wear. And, really, do I care? ;) I have it worked with a sport weight (top, yellow) and a fingering (bottom, white) …hrm. #westknits #stephenwest #westknitskal #westknitsisthebeesknees #knitallthestephenweststuffs

I’m doing the #westknitskal! Going to do Vertices Unite in neons, mint, white, and black #madelinetosh unicorn tails! Super excited! I’ll have a matching project bag soon too. If you want a bag to match your KAL project send me a message! @westknits
