Spring 24 KAL with SweetMeadowKnits

Welcome Spring & Hello Sweet Stuff

Hello Spring, 2024!   

The first day of Spring is the perfect time to begin a new blog.  In Sweet Stuff I'll write mostly about happenings in my corner of the knitwear design world, sometimes about the shop, or the garden, and with a dash of travel news thrown in for spice.  In short, it's life as I know it.

So what is the news on this first day of Spring?  The big news is that I'm preparing to host a KAL which begins officially April 1st, featuring my latest design, the Angelica Cardigan.   Here it is, on the needles.  I'm about eight inches (20cm) along.  

 

 

This is the first finished sweater, which was made with our own "Angel Sport" yarn, a two-ply blend of alpaca and merino.  If you'd like to join, have a look at the Angelica Cardi Thread  on Ravelry for all the information.  KAL participants will receive a 10% off coupon, good through April 15, 2024.

If you'd like to join the KAL, and use your own yarn here's what you need to know...

  • The pattern will be published on April 2nd.  Until then it's free for KAL members. 
  • The pattern has already been tech-edited and is available in sizes XS-5X
  • Finished chest sizes:  34 (38.25, 42.5, 44.75, 49, 53.25, 57.5, 61.75, 66)”/85.5 (96.5, 107.5, 112.5, 123, 134, 145, 155.5, 166.5)cm full bust circumference.

  • A personalized version (through KnitWiz) is also available -- a good choice when substituting yarn or if you think you'll need to modify the pattern.  You'll get the link for the early-access pattern upon signup, which is good through April 1st.
