Mystery Fall Knit Along
avatar

Last week, I posted about the completion of my Summer Shawl.

030-001

This week, I wanted to quickly share about the new Fall Shawl Mystery Knit Along hosted by the same lady who hosted my summer shawl knit along. Several of you expressed interest last week and I wanted to let you all know about the new one coming up.

It’s called Gateway to Fall. It starts on Oct 1 and until that date the pattern is only $4.

And the schedule is as follows:

Schedule
Clue #1 – Tuesday, October 1st
Clue #2 – Friday, October 4th
Clue #3 – Friday, October 11th
Clue #4 – Friday, October 18th
Clue #5 – Friday, October 25th
Clue #6 – Friday, November 1st
Clue #7 – Friday, November 8th
Clue #8 – Friday, November 15th

Here’s the details:

Summer is waning and there is a chill in the air. It is the perfect time to be snuggled up on the couch in front of the fire with hot apple cider and my knitting. This shawl is perfect for those days of relaxing and unwinding.

This rectangular shawl is done in 2 colors of fingering weight yarn and worked from the side to side with the option of adding accent beads and a single button closure. A boldly, striped knit with some lacy details, it is relaxing to knit, but with enough variety to keep you thoroughly entertained.

The 8 clues will be spread out over 7 weeks with simple, non-stressful sections released each week. When purchasing the pattern, you will receive the Setup Clue with all the required supplies, weekly schedule and other details.

If you’ve never done a Mystery Knit Along before, you are in for a treat. Discovering the mystery along with your fellow knitters is the best.

You can find more information by visiting Wild Prairie Knits.

I have enjoyed putting together an inspiration board for these two shawls. It helps me pick color and I find it very inspiring to keep going until it’s done. Of course, being able to post pictures of each step in the Wild Prairie Knit Group on Ravelry is awesome. Knitters from all over the world join in and you get to see hundreds of different combinations of yarns and beads.

So for this shawl, I decided to go with brighter colors. Something to make me think of the bright autumn leaves against the cool crisp Autumn Sky. This is what I came up with:

Gateway to Fall

Okay, knitting readers, anyone in? 🙂

Have a great weekend!

This weekend is promising to be busy and exciting. It’s the Bacon Palooza Event here at the farm with the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund, Weston A. Price Foundation and Paleo Organization. Bring home the BACON! 🙂

Happy Friday!

    I saw your previous post about the summer shawl and it inspired me to pick up the knitting needles again, and look into what knit alongs were all about. I’m definitely in for this one! (I’m WLFMom on Ravelry)
    Love your color inspiration!!!

    I’m impressed! I can’t imagine how you would have time to knit with all you have going on in the summer!! Or, in the fall!!! Maybe dead of winter. I’m not raising kids, am not a wife, but between farmsteading, canning pickles and relish, rendering lard from Polyface hog fat, making kefir and cultured buttermilk from Creambrook Farm milk and beef stock from Polyface beef bones–that’s what I am doing today, I only have time to read instructions until late at night. Then, I fall asleep with my book on my chest, I’m so tired.

    This does look like a lot of fun, but it will have to wait for winter for me to have time.

      I understand completely. I had a hard time staying up with the summer shawl. Maybe this winter, they’ll have another. 🙂

    Wish I knew how to do more the knit stitch! That sounds like so much fun!!

    • Sheri Salatin says:

      Hi Mellisa,
      Have you tried looking on Youtube for stitches. I learned to Knit from my girlfriends and then taught myself the Purl stitch and the others with videos posted on youtube. The nice thing about knitting is that if you know how to knit and purl, you can make anything!! Everything is simply variations of those two stitches.

    I am IN!!! Thank you for sharing the link. I must admit, my only Ravelry usage has been to look for patterns. Now I have to get more involved. I’m morningjoyfarm (original, I know). Your inspiration board looks wonderful, hmmmmmm, what should I do?
