What the Heck - It's a Sebastian Gloves Knitalong

Most of you readers who are knitters are familiar with the term Knitalong (or KAL) for short. For those of you readers who aren't knitters (and I know there are many of you!), a Knitalong is when knitters join together and make the same project simultaneously. They aren't really together in physical space - they are together on the internet. I harken it to a virtual quilting bee. The on-line knitting community is huge (for all you non-knitters) and it is quite fun to be a eensy little part of it. You can read a little about it here on the Slate website for anyone interested.

The fine folks at Webs, where I am teaching a real, honest to goodness, two evening class based on my Sebastian Glove Pattern, asked me if I would be up for participating in their Knitalong - featuring my design in my Color By Kristin Yarn which was on the cover of their fall catalog. I said yes, not knowing how it would really work, but it sounded like a fun way to finish my own Sebastian Gloves. I made one of each glove design and have never finished the second. That's the lonely gloves below. The life of a designer.... It's getting cold and I really could use a new pair of gloves.

So I'm going to give it a go. Anyone else interested? You can read all about it on the Webs Blog. There is a Ravelry page link here too. I'll be posting my progress here on my blog and hopefully adding some hints. If you have questions about the pattern, the best place to leave them is on the Ravelry page. Someone who is ahead of you will answer in the comments. I'll be checking in but have a busy week so I'm not sure I will be right on top of chiming in.

If you would like to buy the pattern from me, you can via the BUY NOW button below. Of course you can also buy the pattern and the yarn at your local yarnstore where it is part of Color By Kristin Book One from Classic Elite Yarns. (And I hope you do if you are lucky enough to have a local yarnstore that stocks Color By Kristin from Classic Elite Yarns!)
