Rowan have recently announced their second KAL designed by Martin Storey. After it took me so long to finish the last one, I was leaning towards not taking part this time, but when I saw the suggested colourways I just had to get involved! You may recall that I posted last year about knitting an ottoman cover to match our new sofas, well I also bought some yarn at the same time for cushion covers. I posted earlier in the month that I was working on one of the cushions while on the train:
The three shades I bought for the ottoman cover and the cushion covers were Umber, Moonstone (pictured above) and Almond all from Rowan’s Pure Wool Worsted range. Well it just so happens that all three of those shades are in the Calm colourway! Along with lots of other shades that will look gorgeous in our living room. So yes, I’m sold! The other colourways are Blues, Evergreen and Spice. Personally I really like Spice as well, but Calm is a much better match for our decor. If you want to jump straight to the juicy details, the shopping list can be downloaded here.
The first clue will be released on 28th January with subsequent clues being released every two weeks. The KAL closes towards the end of May when there will be a competition for completed projects in which you could win a £100 yarn hamper. If that’s not exciting enough, you can also enter on Facebook to win the yarn for the colourway of your choice for the KAL. Fantastic!
I’m all ready to get going, here you can see my colourway along with my footstool and in progress cushion cover. I’m so excited, I think it’s going to look great!
Will you be taking part? If so, what colourway do you like?
