Today marks the start of the Blacker Yarns KAL - an event which celebrates the wonders of the Edinburgh Yarn Festival. Running from now until EYF itself, participants can knit anything they like as long as they use Blacker Yarns.
All the details can be found on the Blacker Yarns Ravelry group - a fabulously chatty thread with lots of ideas for patterns and yarns.
I have been lucky enough to design 3 shawls with Blacker Yarns including I Heart Stripes- above - which was knit out of the first batch of Cornish Tin. To celebrate the KAL I am offering a 50% discount off any or all of these 3 shawls to KAL participants- just pop over to the Blacker Yarns group for all the details and see what everyone else is up to.
