Mrs Tumnus Is Hot Right Now
I’m please to say that my Mrs Tumnus shawl has been well received and has been at the top of the Hot Right Now list on Ravelry since yesterday evening.
I always get a bit nervous when it comes to releasing a new pattern – a kind of nervous excitement like sending something you care about out into the wild for the first time, so it is especially lovely when that wild world is welcoming of your creation.
A few knitters on Ravelry and couple of readers of this blog have also asked if there is a possibility of a KAL for the shawl in the near future. I have never hosted a KAL before so I am gauging interest and so I wanted to ask what, for readers, makes a good Knit-along? Good pattern support for those who are perhaps pushing themselves to try new techniques is a given, but do people like one that has a prescribed pace or a ‘knit to your own time’ approach?
If there appears to be any interest about a KAL I might start an Eskimimi Makes group on Ravelry tomorrow and host one for people to sign up to, but I’d be interested to hear people’s thoughts.
EDIT: A group has been created on Ravelry: Eskimimi Makes. Pattern support, tutorials support, tutorial requests and KALs within. Do drop by!
