Rising Spades KAL Update
Last week clue #1 for the Rising Spades KAL / Sweater class hit the in box of 200 knitters. We’ve only just begun and there are new knitters joining us everyday!
Monday our first, of many, participation prizes will get awarded and of course, there are the grand prizes in December (and yes, one of them will be for a UFO!)
Knitters who join us before Dec 11 will still get 19 video tutorials (nearly 3 hours of filmed sweater instruction), all the sweater modifications and knitting how tos for just the price of the Rising Spades pattern – $8.00!! Let’s see how everyone’s doing.
Rising Spades KAL update
After Dec 11 the pattern only price will stay at $8.00, but if you want to get the pattern + the sweater class (modification notes, how tos and 3 hours of video content), the cost will be $14.00.
With so many wonderful pictures coming in, I thought sharing some might inspire the knitters who have just joined us, and the knitter’s who are thinking about joining.
My favorite thing is reading all the knitter’s comments and excitement when they get it!! This Ravelry group has the kindest, funniest, most supportive knitters in the world!
Getting Started – Swatching
As always, there are tutorials just on gauge! And never fear . . .if you don’t match stitch or row gauge, there’s even tutorials for that!
Getting started knitters said:
would hate to miss one of your KAL’s since I’ve learned so much with each one! Thanks Patty!
What a gorgeous sweater, would love to join 😉 – can’t wait to start!
Love the pattern and looking forward to another great KAL, Patty!
Looking forward to this newest KAL and all the new lessons learned and a wonderful new sweater!
Knitters ordered their yarn and started on swatching:
Clue #1 – Practice swatch, chart reading, working the cable, fixing mistakes in cables and so much more!
This clue was PACKED. Some of the knitters took advantage of the gauge and sweater mod documents to customize the sweater just for them. A bit of math and some ah ha moments:
Got it. My brain hurts, but I got it figured out!!!
I just love this and I know you have to know that by now…. Lights bulbs are blinking bright! Thanks Patty!
We also has some fun with learning to fix mistakes in cables
I just finished watching Video #7 on fixing cables – brilliant, as always
I will use your great video on correcting mistakes in cables for the recent mistakes.
And slowly, sweaters started to take shape!
Stay tuned for soooo much more (and prizes!).
Still haven’t joined us? What are you waiting for! See you all on the Ravelry group!
I’ve definitely learned so much from Patty and everyone in here.
