Project

Arachne KAL Poll

The time for our Arachne knit along is creeping closer!

For anyone thinking about participating, I have some questions for you:

  1. What date do you feel like you will be ready to cast on:
    -Saturday April 4
    -Saturday April 18
    -Saturday April 25
    -I hate all these dates. Here’s the one I like:

2. Are you interested in having a virtual knit night/group to knit together on this project? If so, once a week or just once in a while, like every couple weeks or so?

3. How do you feel about have a specific day of the week to post on our blogs about our progress on the KAL?

4. Would you like to see links posted for tutorials on any of the techniques in the project (stranded colorwork, top down knitting, etc.)?

5. Are you planning on any modifications to the pattern as it is? Do tell!

6. Any other activities or features you’d like to have as part of the KAL?

7. Have any questions?

Feel free to answer in the comments or message me if you prefer. For anyone who is interested in participating but on the fence, the designer has posted a code on her Instagram account for one free pattern for her Ravelry store – see the details here!

In addition to winding up with a cool spiderweb/Halloween sweater, finishers – no matter how long it takes you – OK, let’s say within a year of the start date – will receive a set of Halloween stitch markers! So there’s some added incentive 🙂

  1. It doesn’t matter to me when we start. I’ll begin once I finish the socks I’m working on.
    I will be rewriting the pattern for worsted weight. The plan in my head may not work so I’ve got a back up plan that also may fail.
    Other than those things I’ll be winging it. A specific day to post would be fun but I’ll never remember and probably post a day after.
    I’m looking forward to the KAL:)

  2. Ooh yay! Here are my answers: 1. What date do you feel like you will be ready to cast on:
-Saturday April 4
    2. Are you interested in having a virtual knit night/group to knit together on this project? If so, once a week or just once in a while, like every couple weeks or so?
    I would love that! I would try for once a week, but realistically probably every couple of weeks.
    3. How do you feel about have a specific day of the week to post on our blogs about our progress on the KAL?
    Sure, that would be fun! And motivating.
    4. Would you like to see links posted for tutorials on any of the techniques in the project (stranded colorwork, top down knitting, etc.)?
    Sure, if you want to.
    5. Are you planning on any modifications to the pattern as it is? Do tell!
    I might make removable nipple spiders. Probably not though.
    6. Any other activities or features you’d like to have as part of the KAL?
    I will be doing well to do all these things!
    7. Have any questions? Nope! Thanks for hosting this KAL!

  3. 1. I can cast on any time. I’m happy to throw my other projects to the side and get started, or wait until we are all ready.

    2. Are you interested in having a virtual knit night/group to knit together on this project? HECK YES! If so, once a week or just once in a while, like every couple weeks or so? I think fortnightly would be ideal.

    3. How do you feel about have a specific day of the week to post on our blogs about our progress on the KAL? I love it. I vote Thursdays or Sundays

    4. Would you like to see links posted for tutorials on any of the techniques in the project (stranded colorwork, top down knitting, etc.)? I really like that idea.

    5. Are you planning on any modifications to the pattern as it is? I’m knitting it in a heavy DK/light worsted. I’m going to steek it. I’m going to make the sleeves full length. I’m going to add pockets. I’m going to knit the sweater longer. I’m going to knit it with more positive ease. Just a few changes.

    6. Any other activities or features you’d like to have as part of the KAL? Not that I can think of.

    7. Have any questions? No.

    Sorry about the delay. WordPress wasn’t let me leave comments yesterday.

    1. Awesome – Thank you 🙂 That is just a few changes! Based on everyone’s answers, we are going sooner rather than later. Will post more later today. I’m excited to get going!
