5 Best Lessons Learned from the Roselle Tee KAL

Wow, it has been so amazing to see all of the progress on our eighth KAL (knit-along), the Roselle Tee! I am so excited to see all these finished Roselle Tees being posted across Ravelry and social media, and I am even more thrilled to see you all have learned so much!

For those who have already started (or just joining the fun) and need a little inspiration to get it finished, our Ravelry Group has some stellar finished projects. Scrolling through these gorgeous Roselle Tees will definitely jump start your knitting engines!

One of the best parts about being a teacher is finding out what kinds of takeaways YOU the knitters take away from the experience. I love that these are lessons that you’ll take forward in the rest of your knitting lives.

What are some of the best lessons or skills people learned in the Roselle Tee KAL? Five of our KALers shared they learned.

Welcome to Roselle Tee Knit-Along (KAL)!

It’s time for the spring knit-along!!! I am so excited to start another KAL on my Ravelry group. There will be tons of teaching and fun, prizes and a great garment! This garment, the Roselle Tee, is totally reversible so it’s like getting TWO tops for the price of one (actually three, but more on that in a second).

As always, there will be HOURS of video tutorials, and modification documents to help you every step of the way.

After May 20 the KAL – sweater class versions (with all the how tos, video tutorials, and modification notes) will be $16. So get it now, knit it now or later and SAVE!

Designing for Dolores

I will never forget the day I got the call, the call from herself. There are some fashion icons so famous, so immortal, they only need one name, and their association with their designers have made the designer’s name immortal too. Audrey and Givenchy, Jackie and Oleg Cassini, Cher and Bob Mackie. Would it be possible? Could it be possible? Dolores and Patty.

Just then I got a text. She’ll be in New York next week. She’ll be coming by my studio to get started. At this point I had to put my head between my knees and breathe into a paperbag. It was my turn to design for Dolores.
