i've always been a fan of jane richmond's designs and i've followed shannon's blog, very shannon, for a few years. i was so excited when this collection finally released.
the lovely ladies are hosting a KAL over in shannon's ravelry group and i cast on inland. inland is a pattern that i have admired from the first time i saw it. michelle knit one not too long ago and i was inspired to cast on for the kal.
i actually bought the yarn at a lys in florida when i was there at thanksgiving. this lovely shop was having a huge sale...what knitter can resist a sale? i scored a whole bag (!!!) of plymouth encore chunky for around 25 bucks and planned to knit inland. this kal fit perfectly with my plans since i had to get my christmas knitting done before i could cast on something for myself.
i'm planning it knit all 6 patterns from the journey collection. i have yarn on the way from knit picks for the onward shawl.
if you want to see other beautiful projects, you can check the rav group thread and this pinterest board (genius!!!). shannon has written a couple of posts about the kal and posted her beautiful finished antrorse sweater. jane has also posted her inland. head over to this post that shannon wrote yesterday for links to other participants' projects!
