The Pre-Game Show

Welcome to our Whimsical Little Knit-Along blog - we're a group of knitterly friends who like to go to brunch and talk about all things knitting because we just can't stay away from the topic. We talk in what must seem like code about MadTosh yarn and favorite patterns, and feel no shame in bringing out our knitting to work on as we drag out brunch as long as possible.

Sadly, however, our little group is getting a bit splintered and I wanted a way to keep our knitting connection alive, so it is with a common love for the designer Ysolda Teague and her many beautiful designs that we are embarking on a blogging knit-along through the pattern book Whimsical Little Knits 2. The patterns are all small accessories that seem perfect for summer knitting and a great way to use up some stash (or an excuse to enhance it further...) You'll be hearing from all of us over the next few months as we share our yarn choices, progress, pictures, and any helpful hints about the projects. I'm particularly hopeful that as the instigator of this project I'm able to keep up - my knit-along track record would suggest otherwise but I'm excited nonetheless!

Tune in tomorrow for our inaugural yarn post as we start on the first pattern of the knit-along: Damson!

Thank you to Ysolda Teague and her associate Sarah for giving us permission for this blog - we're really excited about making it great and appreciate the opportunity!
