When we started thinking about our next knitalong. and the knitalong calendar relative to actual calendar, and the urge to "knit all the things", we decided to throw in a (potentially) quick one in January for pillows. (Oh yeah, one more reason is that Sue needs more cozy cushions at English house.) We also wanted to expose more of you, dear readers, to Fifty Four Ten Studio's offerings. She's been on our radar ever since Sue made this five years ago.
So when we were opening the shop and wanted a blanket sample made with Cestari merino, we did the On The Porch pattern. She's our go-to spot on Ravelry when someone wants to make a blanket.
The patterns are written for a good-sized gauge (size 9 needles and up), they all offer a size range from baby to quite big, and all are really easy to follow. We've had folks knit these for baby gifts over and over. Our friend Teddy zipped in to knit a second one as soon as she got the request from "hipster" niece who had received the original one Teddy made, gets the "where did you get that blanket" comment from fellow hipster parents, and wanted another one in different color.
Knitalong details? Take a look at Merry Lee's patterns, think about a place in your home that needs a freshen up, someone who would love a hand knit cushion or throw, and join in the fun for January.
Nifty FIFT-teen percent off knitalong-specific yarn and we will give a pillow insert to the first two people who finish a pillow!
And we give a $54.10 gift card to first participant to finish a throw sized blanket.
AND Mary Lee of Fifty Four Ten Studio has sent us Ravelry codes to give for a FREE PATTERN of your choosing from all that she offers. You just need to come show us progress on your pillow or throw and we'll give you the super secret free coupon code through the end of February.
