Spinning Show & Tell: The Acronym post - aka AYLM SAL KAL

This week I want to tell you about the Spin-along Knit-along (SAL KAL) that Tanya aka 'A Yarn Loving Mama' (AYLM) is hosting on her blog and which starts on Monday 23rd September. To take part, all you need to do is to spin approximately 240 yards of DK weight yarn, and then cast on the Age of Brass and Steam shawlette which, if you don't know of it, is an incredibly popular free pattern available on Ravelry.  
There is no fixed end date, which is good as I have no idea how long it will take me to do this, but I'm going to give it a go! If you fancy joining in, you can find out more on the AYLM blog, Ravelry group and Facebook page. Updates will be tagged on social media sites as #salkalageofbrass. All I need to do now, is find some lovely fibre.... maybe something red-ish... any suggestions? 

If you'd like to add your spinning or fibre posts from the last week, please use the Mister Linky below, and don't forget to tell your spinning friends about it by posting a link on your blog/website too. 


  1. Great SAL. I'll have fun watching your progress :O).

  2. That's a fun little shawl pattern! I have far too much on my spinning plate already but it's a great idea!
