New Knit-A-Long announced!

Since Spring weather is right around the corner, we have decided to have spring/summer patterns for our next Knit-a-long (KAL). Going forward we are going to have a theme for most of our KALs. The next KAL (July 1 to September 30th) will be an Agatha Christie themed KAL.

This knit-a-long will run from April 1st to June 30th and during the knit-a-long you are welcome to knit one or all of the patterns. I will provide the patterns to you for free and they will be available in our Facebook Group. (Please do not share the patterns as they come from either my store or a private collection.) In the future we will also be looking for other vintage knitting pattern businesses to sponsor our KALs.

I have posted the patterns in our group prior to the KAL to give you a chance to buy your yarn. Please hold off starting this KAL until April 1st, so we can all start together. Trust me, even I am having itchy start knitting the patterns now fingers.

Please post your progress photos and finished jumpers photos in the group and on Instagram. We will have a progress thread already set up for you.

When you post on Instagram please tag me and use hashtag #killerkitschknitalong. During the knit-a-long I will be reposting your photos in my Instagram and/or adding them to the photos in the group.

I hope everyone is as excited as I am for this next knit-a-long. The last ones have been incredibly fun and all the jumpers beautiful! Don’t worry if you are still working on your jumper from our other KALs, please keep posting about them. We want to see your beautiful work.

First Vintage KAL of 2018

Our first KAL of 2018 is off to an amazing start. Our Facebook group and Instagram are lighting up with progress photos and questions. I am super happy how much everyone is loving the sweaters we choose for this Vintage KAL and our last one. The 1938  two colour jumper, the 1937 cable jumper and 1950s bed jacket colour combinations were so incredible!  Now the colours being chosen for the 1940s Champion Jumper and the 1950s Blouse, beyond amazing!  Many people are already done the front of the Champion Jumper. It is DK (double knit weight) so I’m not surprised.

Here are some progress photos so far.

New Killer Kitsch Vintage Knit-a-long!

AND the winning jumpers are!  Ding! Ding! Ding!  The #4 the short sleeved blouse and #1 the skater sweater!

 

I can’t wait to see what colourways everyone comes up with!

Here are the knit-a-long details:

The knit-a-long will run from January 1st to April 30th. During the knit-a-long you are welcome to knit one or both of the patterns. I will provide the patterns to you for free.

To join the knit-a-long is simple. I have listed everything below:

  1. Join our group on Facebook. I will have the patterns in the files area. (if you don’t have Facebook, don’t worry, please private message me and I will send you the pattern)
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/killerkitschvintageknitalong/
  2. Post your progress photos and finished jumper photos here on Instagram.
  3. When you post photos tag me and use hashtag #killerkitschknitalong

During the knit-a-long I will be reposting your photos in my Instagram and adding them to the photos in the group.

Why a Facebook group? I learned a lot from running my first vintage knit-a-long and it is important to have a central area for everyone to go to ask help questions and one place to store all the knit-a-long files. I also want to build a vintage knitting community and this is a great way for everyone to discuss with all the other vintage knitters in our community.

You can join anytime between January 1st and March 30th and this knit-a-long will wrap up on April 30th.

I hope everyone is as excited as I am for this next knit-a-long. The last one was incredibly fun and all the jumpers beautiful!
