These EXTREMELY POPULAR kits are back in stock in VERY LIMITED QUANTITY - with the exclusive gift that was included in the first 2 sold out runs. The MAL itself starts next week (Decemebr 1st, 2020) and I am currently dyeing the yarn for these final kits, which I will send out to you as soon as it is fully dried and the kits are put together) Depending on the post to your location, they will be with you soon after (not in time for the Dec 1st, but defintely in time to join in the fun) ... and you will still have a FABULOUS shawl made with this gorgeous icy-blue hand dyed colourway. --------- I’ve joined forces with the FABULOUSLY talented crochet designer, Heather Gibbs of Kcaco.uk, in a Dyer/Designer MAL collaboration, just in time to celebrate Winter Solstice 2020! ❄️ But, what’s a MAL? Well, we know you’ve heard of CAL or KAL (crochet or knit along respectively!) or even a Mystery knit along (MKAL) ... ... so, a MAL, or Make ALong, is similar to all of these, with only a couple of differences. ❄️ A make-along is the specific released of a pattern, with all of the details required to make the design, along with a specific start date for everyone to begin their project, TOGETHER! ❄️Each kit will include:* 2x 100g skeins of Corriedale Sock 80/20 yarn, in an exclusive hand-dyed colourway* Sparkly Preciosa* crystal beads to embellish your creation - who doesn’t love a bit of bling?!* A digital copy of the pattern (which will be sent to you at the end of November!)* and a few extra, exclusive treats, just for good measure! So, unlike a crochet-along where you often have segments of the pattern released over a number of weeks, you have the pattern in full (and the kit to make it) with just an end date to make it by. It’s a relaxed way to make a project as you can work at your own pace, but there is a deadline to hold you accountable should you need one! The MAL will start on Dec 1st and will run until 21 December, when everyone can have a ta-dah moment and show off their wraps using #solsticegardenMAL ❄️ These pre-ordered kits will be sent out in mid-November to ensure you get them in time for the start of the MAL. I will be dyeing kits to order over the coming weeks, with generally a 1 week turn-around from order to shipping. But get in quick to ensure you get yours in plenty of time to crochet along with us! *INTERNATIONAL Orders have now ALL been shipped* - I can still ship overseas (while stock remains) but cannot guarantee orders will reach you in time for the beginning of the MAL UK ORDERS have all shipped and I am now shipping as the last few are ordered, but delays in the post are being experienced in some locations. Heather and I cannot wait for you to crochet along with us. x Kitey
Solstice Garden MAL
Solstice Garden Crochet Make-Along (MAL) 2020
We are SUPER excited to tell you more about this secret project I've been working on, with a new friend I made over lockdown, which has resulting in a very fun collaboration and my very first make-along project!
I've joined forces with Heather from kcaco.uk, who as created a brand new design, working with some of my exclusively-dyed yarn, to create a unique crocheted wrap called Solstice Garden.
It was a case of crochet designer virtually meeting yarn dyer!
Back in March, Heather joined one of my Virtual Stitch-n-B*tch sessions and thereafter joined in almost daily chats with a host of other lovely people.
The more we got to know each other, the more the joke started that we should do a collaboration – which then developed into an actual idea for a make-along (MAL) - with mood boards, and ideas crossing the ether through clandestine zoom calls and plenty of emails and messages.
We really hope you enjoy the MAL and look forward to crocheting along with you from Dec 1st up until the night of Winter Solstice on December 21st!
