Holy SMokes! It's August!

Yes, hot dry August has appeared on the calendar!  What better way to begin the month than with a mystery KAL??

Anniken Allis is the designer.

I found this one on my favorite site--Ravelry, of course!
Okay, I can learn something new--what is Periscope?  Wonders never cease!--
here we have a live streaming site right on my phone--
always there is an app!


The Gondola KAL is a mystery knitalong (KAL) with a difference. You will be knitting along with designer as she design this crescent shawl inspired by Venice.
The designer will be taking you through her design process with weekly Periscope videos and blog posts. There will also be pattern specific tutorials. Updates to the pattern will also be released weekly as we knit this design together.
This shawl has not been knitted yet. Designer decided on the shape, the yarn she will be using and one stitch pattern. The rest will be decided during the KAL
