A huge thank you to Storey Publishing for your blessing on this CAL/KAL and for sponsoring the awesome giveaways!! If you would like to purchase a copy of Knit the Sky, you can also help support my blog by purchasing through the affiliate links in this post.
I recently had the chance to review the new release, Knit the Sky: Cultivate Your Creativity with a Playful Way of Knitting by Lea Redmond, and wow, what a bunch of fun ideas inside!! From a patchwork throw to commemorate favorite vacation spots to a bobble linen dishcloth marking the milestones in your life, Knit the Sky is filled with whimsical ways to stitch meaning into your next project. And best of all, the ideas can be easily applied to crochet as well!
One idea however was my favorite and it just so happens to be the title project of the book, knitting the sky! I think a knit and crochet along is in order for this one! I will go into more detail on that next week, but for now, start gathering your supplies and join the P2P community on Facebook or Ravelry. You will need:
- 3 to 5 colors of lace weight yarn (how much we will end up using is really up to Mother Nature). I have chosen Jagger Spun in white, ice blue, and charcoal. Some additional options could be a bright or dark blue or a light gray and dark gray.
- US 3/3.25 mm or US 4/3.5 mm needles if knitting or US D/3.25 mm or E/3.5 mm hook if crocheting
- size 6/0 seed beads (optional)
And to kick off our crochet and knit along, the generous folks over at Storey Publishing are sponsoring prizes for 5 winners!!
Each week day next week a winner will be picked to receive a copy of Knit the Sky, ending the week with a grand prize winner chosen on Friday to receive a copy of Knit the Sky plus their choice of 5 of these new releases from Storey Publishing:
