We are so excited to finally get started on Martin Storey’s second KAL! Between now and the middle of May, Rowan Yarns is releasing the patterns for eight different squares, as well as how-to videos and interviews with Martin Storey. Every two weeks, you'll have a new pattern to try out and when the KAL is finished, you'll have 48 squares to make up a beautiful blanket. The final, ninth release on May 12 features the edging. The patterns have been designed for adventurous beginners! You don't have to be a knitting expert to take part, though seasoned knitters will still enjoy the variety of techniques in this design.
Martin's KAL uses Rowan Pure Wool Worsted, a 100% machine-washable wool that comes in a gorgeous array of colours, available right here at RCY! How can we resist? We’ll be knitting along, and we want you to join us! River City Yarns is hosting Martin Storey KAL Kick-off events at the store on Friday, February 5 and Saturday, February 6. Barb will be on hand from 12:00 - 3:00 pm each of these days to help you with yarn and colour selections. At 3:00 pm, she'll sit down with you to get started on your first square. Space is limited and Barb is planning on a special gift for all the KAL members who come out to this special kick-off event, so you must register. Call the store at 780-477-9276 to reserve your spot!
To participate in this KAL, you'll need to be a Rowan member (free of charge) in order to download the patterns (also free). There is no charge to participate in the KAL or our Kick-Off event; we simply ask that you use Rowan Pure Wool Worsted for this project. Click here to download the shopping list!
