Renee Callahan’s breathtaking Naloa shawl is now available for purchase on Ravelry! A simple, elegant shawl, this is a top-down triangular shawl with streams of stacked eyelets running out from the centre to wavelets of lace in the border. Designed to be knit with 2 skeins of BEYUL fingering, Naloa features a simple alternation of colour to bring out the beautiful flow of the lace pattern.
As a little added bonus for anyone in the London area this weekend we are also holding at mini-trunk show at the EastLondonKnit studios for the annual arts festival Hackney Wicked:
You can drop by, enjoy the festivities, try on the sample and even purchase some Kettle Yarn Co. yarn to start the shawl! Renee will have some BEYUL in studio for you to see and fondle in person.
We are planning a marvelous Knit A Long (KAL) for this beauty which will start on Saturday August 9th and will run to the 13th September and will have some AMAZING prizes for various fun things. We’ll give you more details next week when we’ve worked them out.
Check the blog for details next week and get your Naloa Kit now in the shop while they last. I am planning on taking a bit of a break from dyeing through August, so skeins are limited for the time being!
Yet another amazing weekend and another amazing show! In recovery from a whirlwind time of playing with some truly amazing people, especially the ever fabulous EastLondonKnit – my partner in crime at the booth this weekend! Wish you all could have been there. 😉
You likely won’t be hearing much from me for the next few days as I try to get my energy back, but wanted to share this great article on the lovely Helen from Just Got Made – a UK online maker’s directory – from ethical living magazine The Village Green featuring another preview of Renee’s beautiful Naloa shawl in BEYUL, which we launched this weekend at Fibre East to rave responses!
The pattern and kits will be released online later this week, so stay tuned:
