Wholehearted Shawl KAL

The wonderful Evelyn of Project: Stash recently started a KAL featuring the Wholehearted Shawl pattern.  The KAL ends at the end of May, and until then the proceeds from the pattern sales will be donated to the author's daughter who is rebuilding after a horrible house fire.  

Evelyn kindly donated the pattern to me and I had the perfect yarn for it, so of course I had to join my first ever KAL.  It is really neat to think that there are a bunch of other knitters out there working on the same project! 


This is a very simple, but a seriously fun pattern to knit.  It is perfect for me right now because I can knit it without having to really pay attention.  I also think that I will very likely wear it frequently (well, when it gets cool outside again...)


I'm also really enjoying working with the yarn, Araucania Itata Multy, which I have raved about extensively in the past.  Lucky me having two colors that work so well together stashed away!

If you are looking for a quick, fun project, I would highly recommend this pattern, then you could also join me for the KAL!

I'm making great progress on this and should be able to easily make the deadline if I don't get too sidetracked in the meantime.

  4. Won't be able to join the KAL but am going to pick up the pattern - so cute and fun way to help out - even in just a small way. Grey+ almost any color is a favorite of mine- love that -what I would call a "Pumpkin"multi color yarn!

  12. Can't wait to see how the finished shawl looks with those colors. I can't remember if I told you I bought the pattern, too. I wanted to support the designer's daughter in her recovery from the fire. I don't think I will have time to knit it in May, but eventually I will get to it.

  14. I love that first picture. The contrast of the few rows of orange against the darker yarn is really striking!
