Lycaena virgaureae Knit Along

I’ll be having knit alongs for each of the pattern pairs in The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, Volume II.  This month we’re starting the two patterns inspired by the Lycaena virgaureae print (you can click on the print to see it bigger, it really is quite lovely).

That’s these delicate orange socks.

And this delicious orange shawl.

If you’d like to join in, swing on by the ravelry thread and get knitting.  This is pretty laid back for a knit along (too many rules make my head hurt).  The general idea is cast on any time now…knit…post a picture showing your finished project by the end of August (each installment of the KAL runs for two months, so you’ve got plenty of time).  And, if you want to chat (pick yarns, ask questions, show off progress pics, whatever), I’d love it.  We’re a friendly bunch!

We’ll be doing a new installment of the knit along every month (and each one will run for two months), and we’ll work our way through the book in order.  The knit along for the Vanessa antiopa patterns is still going strong, and you’re welcome to join that still.

As each pair of patterns comes up for the knit along, the individual patterns will become available to purchase (so if you love one of the patterns but don’t want the whole book, there’s a way for you to get it).  Look for these two patterns later this week.  I hope you’ll join us!
