Another Day, Another KAL

This time, it’s Ambah O’Brien’s Solstice Wrap Knit-A-Long! This pattern can be knit in either fingering weight or DK, and is meant to use up an Advent set or just a bunch of scraps or minis.

I am using mini-skeins for mine. Specifically, two sets of Yarn Cafe Creations mini sets; 1 set from the Wool Baron, a long-ago Etsy seller; some of the skeins from my Fangirl Fibers Marshmallow World set from last Christmas; and a few strays.

These colors are not entirely in character for me, though I think they are very pretty and just perfect for summer!

Are you knitting along with any KALs right now? Do tell!

  1. Oh, these are stunning colors! I love them. They’re not in my usual color family either, but I’m trying to branch out and pick a wider variety of color.

    I’m not doing any KALs right now; I’m trying to focus on weaving experiments instead, at least for now. I might do another KAL this fall or winter, though.

    1. Thank you! I am trying that too. I’m kind of in a rut of black, gray, blue, a different gray, etc. Need to shake it up a little!
      I am interested to see your next steps in weaving – your houndstooth scarf is beautiful!

      1. I’ve been in a green/blue rut lately. I’m trying to use a bigger variety of colors, but it’s hard when my stash is dominated by so many pretty cool colors. There just aren’t a lot of warm colors in stash to choose from.

        My next weaving project (which I’ll probably start this weekend) is going to be a gradient scarf! I’m sticking to plain weave for now, but this one plays with color differently and uses an ombre yarn to create a gradient scarf based on how you weave it. I’m really excited to see how it works!

      2. That sounds so cool! Please share pictures – I can’t wait to see it!
        I know what you mean. I like cool colors best and feel like I look best in them. So I’m never sure what to do with warm colors.

      3. Will do! I realized I don’t have the right size heddle for it, though, so I won’t be starting that scarf this weekend after all. It’ll be happening soon, though, and I’ll definitely make a WIP post out of it when I do!
