I love a good knitalong (though I’m notoriously bad at finishing things for knitalongs), and Very Shannon’s Summer Sweater Knitalong is a good one. It encourages people who’ve never knit garments before to give it a try, and for everyone else it’s a reminder that fall isn’t that far off after all.
This year’s knitalong will run from July 30 through Sept. 24, and all you have to do is sign up and at least start knitting or crocheting a sweater of any style, any size (including for children) during the knitalong period.
You can talk about your project, get or give advice and show off your finished projects in the Ravelry group, get inspiration on the Pinterest board and share your work on social media with the hashtag #sskal14.
At the end of the knitalong some participants will receive lovely prizes from the sponsors, so you’ll want to sign up and play along.
Does this sound like something you’d be interested in? Have you participated in this or other knitalongs before? I’d love to hear about it!
