Keep Making KAL

Hello Everyone, Happy Friday! Today we announce the beginning of another J&S KAL – the Keep Making KAL! we thought since it will be a while before life is back to normal we would host another Knit-A-Long. Rather than a themed KAL as we have done before this time we would focus on using this time to make something you’ve always wanted to make or trying a new-to-you skill in your making. We want to encourage discussion and sharing progress – mainly on our ravelry group but also through any social media using the #keepmakingkal

We are all going through different experiences at the moment and we hope the project you choose to work on during the KAL will give you comfort, whether that is as a distraction at the end of the day or something you can focus on while you are home.

so the rules are as follows:

  • All projects must use only Jamieson & Smith yarns/fibres.
  • You can use any wool/fibre based skill – knitting, crochet, spinning, embroidery etc as long as the wool used is from J&S
  • KAL will run from now (22nd May 2020 to 22nd September 2020)
  • Focus on improving your skills, making something you’ve always wanted to make, using a yarn you’ve never used, designing something thats just been an idea or finishing a project that’s been waiting to be finished!
  • Share progress on our Ravelry group and post your finished object in a designated finished object thread.
  • A winner will be chosen at random by a random number generator, everyone who posts a finished object will receive a free J&S pattern of their choice from our Ravelry store.
  • By taking part you are allowing us to share your images on our social media.

So have a think and head over to our Ravelry Group and get chatting about what you’d like to make, we are always amazed at the items made during our KAL’s and we cant wait to see what you come up with!

    I am new to Shetland lace knitting but would love to take part in this KAL. I think it is a wonderful idea particularly at this difficult time for everyone. I had Elizabeth Lovick’s book The Magic of Shetland Lace Knitting on my shelf for a while so took this opportunity of having extra time to knit her Crescent Shawl. It was a challenge but a great learning experience so I made it twice in linen and cotton. Just yesterday I received my order of A Legacy of Shetland Lace plus Shetland Supreme 1 ply yarn and they are both exquisite! I plan to choose a scarf pattern from the book as my project for the KAL. My family immigrated to Canada from Scotland when I was a child and I have watched my mother knit many lace baby shawls over the years. She is now 89 and finished her latest one last year! Thank you very much for this opportunity.

  3. Hello, to not be shown as a guest to the group you just have to become a member of the J&S group. On the group homepage there should be an option at the top to join group 🙂

    Hi Ella, I have completed my project for the KAL and posted it but noticed in the instructions that the finished object is to be posted in a designated finished object thread. Could you please tell me how I do this. Thank you!
