NEW: The Spring knitalong for 2014 starts on March 15th. Find full details in here!


SUMMER 2013: The Pick A Boo KAL ran throughout the Summer of 2013 (details on this post) and was based on the designer "Boo Knits". Participants were asked to chose any one of the shawls, however a number of people couldn't stop at one and made two or more! The participation was fabulous and the designer was kind enough to frequent the Ravelry group to help with any questions and generally support the knitters. 
Here are a selection of the many Instagram pictures posted during the knitalong:

FEBRUARY 2013 -  The 'Next Step' Sock KAL aimed to take your sock knitting to the next level, whatever that may be. The brief was: "Choose your own sock pattern, but make it something to expand your sock-knitting skills! Full details can be found here. If you're joining in, be sure to subscribe to the blog, 'like' on Facebook or follow on Twitter."

Over 100 knitters participated on Ravelry, Instagram and Facebook, resulting in lots of gorgeous socks. You can see many of them on Instagram using the tag #NSSKAL or click to view them here.

The June Shawl KAL pattern was Veera Valimaki's Color Affection shawl which was voted for by readers. Participants used the tag #JSKknitalong on Twitter and there was a weekly update post including a "Mister Linky" each Tuesday in June (individual posts can be found here). Here are some of the photos posted to our Instagram gallery...

2012 - STRIPE STUDY SHAWL KAL in conjunction with Natalie from Misadventures in Craft. The first knitalong started when Nat and I decided we would both cast on the Stripe Study Shawl and asked if anyone else wanted to join in - several people did. Using Twitter and Instagram we shared tips and photos as we went along. Here are some of the pictures...
