Introducing the Knit-a-Long pattern winners!  After some input from people who wanted to participate, I decided on these four patterns:

  1. Blue Bell Hill Scarf by Jocelyn Tunney - This chevron style scarf with alternating garter and stockinette stitch sections is extremely versatile and customizable, while also being simple but interesting enough to look like it took a lot more effort than it actually did!  Win-win! (I also suggest that you look through some of the other patterns available on the O-Wool website - they’re fantastic!)
  2. Great Weekend Mitts by Thea Eschliman - Another easily customizable knit.  Get creative with different color stripes, make it a solid color, use a variegated or self striping yarn, and add your own touch with buttons (or no buttons at all).  They can also be made longer or shorter, depending on your preference.  Knit in the round or on straight needles and seamed at the end.
  3. Rye by tincanknits - These DK or worsted weight socks are knit with garter stitch on the top of the foot.  Because they are knit with thicker yarn than typical socks, they are sure to be a quick project.  And the pattern is available in a variety of sizes!
  4. Graham Hat by Jennifer Adams - This hat is simple but fun enough to keep your interest, and can easily be customized to suit your preferences!  Plus, it’s apparently reversible, so that’s an added bonus.

Super basic guidelines:

  1. You can knit one, or you can knit all of them.  It’s completely up to you.  Once you’ve joined by sending me an official “I’m joining the knit-a-long!” message, you can let me know which one you’re planning on knitting, but you don’t have to stick to it.
  2. End date is January 31, but that’s obviously a very fluid deadline.  Knit at your own pace, and I’d love to see your progress/end result!
  3. Speaking of seeing progress, I’ve set up a sub-blog at knitalongwithme.tumblr.com.  If you’re knitting with us and would like to be a member, just ask!
  4. Tag anything you post with the tag #knitalongwithme so we can keep up with each other!

If anyone has any questions - whether they’re about the KAL, or you need help with any of the patterns - please feel free to get in touch with me!

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m really excited about this.  Can’t wait to see all of your knits!

I also wouldn’t mind if some of you reblogged this to give it a signal boost.  Just saying. :) Thanks!
