Thurlby Lane KAL - Update!

And we're off!  Great strides are being made in our Thurlby Lane Beanie KAL, we've had one finisher and lots of starters, but there is still plenty of time to join and knit one for yourself and a loved one.  

As you can see I cast on, in my Sandrasingh 1 Ply Merino Worsted in Blue Gray and I'm really enjoying this pattern. Its super easy and its going to be a fast knit.  

And our first finisher is in!  This is Kristina, aka Wanderlustknits, and she's the first to complete her Thurlby.  She's officially entered in the Kit and Pattern giveaway.  Congrats Kristina, your beanie is adorable and I love the color you went with.
