For our next knitalong, we’ll be making Janina Kallio’s Melodia. It’s a crescent shaped shawl that’s worked from the top down in garter stitch and decorative eyelets. Simple and beautiful, it’ll be great for an easy summer project.
I’ve been adding Janina’s patterns to my queue for a while now. I like almost all of them, and Melodia seems a good place to start.
I’ll be knitting with Madelinetosh’s Tosh Merino Light, although I still haven’t picked a color. They’re all so beautiful! If you’d like to use it too, it’s 10% off now through Sunday, May 17, 2015. If you’re shopping online, just enter the discount code MELKAL. If you’re shopping in the store, just let us know it’s for the knitalong.
The knitalong will officially begin on Sunday, May 17. All you need to do to knit with us is visit the knitalong thread in our Ravelry group and say you’re in. If you’re in the Philadelphia area, please join me in the shop that Sunday from 2 and 4pm and we can cast on together.
Since many people go away for Memorial Day, we’ll plan to finish Melodia by Sunday, June 14, which is 5 weeks. Post a picture of your finished shawl in the knitalong thread in the Loop Group by that day and one randomly-selected knitter will receive a $25 gift card!
