A beautiful pairing of classic seed stitch and bias-style stockinette, Kate’s Poncho is just the right thing to wear as you settle into a chilly spring evening. Pulled over your shoulders, it’s perfect for those nights at the beach, sitting around the fire as you watch the sun sink into the sea. Wear it on a morning walk, out in the garden, on a fun lunch date with friends.

September is the beginning of our knitting season!
We are working on iPurl's September Class Schedule. Under that umbrella, are the KALs! They are always at the very tail end of the Class Schedule and sometimes the info is completely overlooked. Many times we hear "I didn't know about the KALs." Beginning around the 1st of September, as the KAL becomes a firm plan, we are going to send out each KAL as a separate email. Be sure to look for those emails, if you are interested in participating.
For now, we thought you might like to get a peek at what's in the works.
1) Angelika in Malabrigo's Book 5 (possibly on Tuesdays)
2) Dinner in the Eiffel Tower - on Wednesdays (many are using the Blue Heron Rayon Metallic they just purchased)
3) Lady Eleanor - on Fridays
4) Passing Places - on Saturdays
All of the patterns can be found on Ravelry.
