Ravelry KALs

Knitters from across the country and around the globe have been enjoying themselves in one, or more, of the many KALs happening in my Ravelry group, Sandrasingh.com. Many of these talented fiber artists were gracious enough to allow me to share their work with you.

Through The Loops' hat, scarf and mitten set Isabella has been a big hit. Among the many participates, the Maddcrocheter has knit the scarf in some fun color combinations. The red and pink scarf above is knit in Malabrigo Merino Worsted Ravelry Red with Damask while her blue and brown scarf below is done in Knitpicks' Swish Worsted.

The Super Bulky Winter Vest by Lisa Ellis Designs has also been a popular project. SnookiesOz, out of Lancaster, PA, was kind enough to share her beautiful work with us, shown blocking above and modeled by her lovely daughter below.

She knit it in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick on size US 15 (10mm) needles.
SnookiesOz has been a very busy knitter! She also joined us for the Desert Rose Designs' Pamper Yourself Spa Collection KAL and her lovely set is shown below in Lily Sugar'n Cream Ombres & Prints and knit on size US 5 (3.75mm) needles.
Turns out knitters everywhere love vampires almost as much as they love KALs! In honor of our favorite HBO series, True Blood a group of us decided to knit the Ficklekniter's Versacowl to protect our necks from love bites.
From across the pond in England Tootsie2121 knit her stunning Versacowl (above) in Malabrigo Merino Worsted Sealing Wax on size US 7 (4.5mm) needles.
And Chayalaura, from upstate NY, knit her gorgeous Versacowl (above) in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino also on size US 7 needles.

The Texasknitster, from Dallas, TX, has also been a very busy knitter! First she knit her Versacowl (above) in Sublime Yarns Extra Fine Merino Wool DK on size US (4mm) needles.

Then she decided to participate in our Tangled Vine Socks KAL (by Chrissy Gardiner of Gardiner Yarn Works) and knit her pair in Malabrigo Sock Tiziano Red on size US 0 (2mm) needles.
She than decided to pick up 3 skeins of Schaefer's Anne and start a KAL for the Murphy's Lace circular shawl. Her Murphy's Lace, modeled here on her daughter, looks absolutely gorgeous.
And now she's knitting the Desert Rose Shawl, by Renee Leverington of Goddess Knits. The Texasknitster is working her shawl in The Alpaca Yarn Company's Suri Elegance Blue Blood Red, shown above.

She's in good company for this KAL, Ginih of Allen, TX is also knitting her Desert Rose (above) in Suri Elegance Pearl Harbor on size US 4 (3.5mm) and its looking beautiful.

And the talented Susieb327 from Columbus, OH is in this KAL too and she's working her shawl in Alpaca Silky Lace in a pretty Slate Blue color, above.

The Texasknitster was kind enough to create line counts for each section of this pattern, if you'd like a free copy email me at sandrasingh@sandrasingh.com

And our newest KAL is Chrissy Gardiner's Birch, this entrelac and lace piece can be knit as a wrap, stole or scarf.

AngMac, the hand painter extraordinaire of Serendipitous Ewe, is working her Birch in her own Lucky Sock in the colorway Flock (shown above) on size US 4 (3.5mm) needles. The color is doing it justice!

Thank you everyone for letting me share all of your brilliant work!

These KALs are open to all Sandrasingh.com customers and we'd love to have you pick up your knitting needles and join us.

I really enjoy seeing the variety of projects you have! Beautiful job ladies. I keep watching for all the new items listed. Will join in a KAL as soon as the Ravelympics are finished. Thanks Sandra for all the hard work you put into your site, blog and group!
