Some KAL Details are:

  • Start: September 19
  • End: October 23
  • Knit any of these four designs by Melanie Berg of Mairlynd: Solaris, The Joker and the Thief, On the Spice Market, January Skies


I love all 4 designs but have chosen to knit On the Spice Market for this KAL.  I have chosen to use Holst Garn Coast which is a 55% Merino Lambswool/45% Cotton blend yarn.  It feels so soft and hopefully it would be suitable for the temperatures here in Brisbane.  One of the best thing I love about this yarn is that it’s already wound for me!  Yay!  I can just jump in and start casting on :).

I am hopeless at choosing colours but I have finally decided on these 6 colours with off white yarn.  I originally had a darker pink/purple and darker blues but I had to substitute a few lighter colours as my local yarn shop ran out of the colours I wanted.
