My Iraira shawl was chosen as the hostess's first cast-on project for the KAL!

I am excited (I'm always excited these days it seems) to announce that Aroha Knits will be a proud sponsor of the Tea House Knits Light KAL. Participants of this KAL will be entered to win any one of my shawl designs! The theme of the KAL will be "light": which includes any definition of light: sunlight, moonlight, light layering or if something makes your heart light. Casting-on begins today, May 1st, and will finish on August 31st. Head on over to the thread on Ravelry to join in!

Also take some time to check out her podcast as well. Here are links to her blog, Ravelry group and Youtube Channel.
 

Can You Keep a Secret?

This one is to be kept under wraps!

This one is to be kept under wraps!

I've got a special collaborative design coming out this summer and I couldn't be more enthralled! However, I have to keep the details a secret but here are some details I can indulge you with...

1. It's a special design specifically for Julie Asselin's Leizu Fingering Gradient Set (but of course the pattern will be written to include those who wish to use other gradient sets!).

2. It's an accessory piece.

3. It's also a collaborative piece with a very special and talented metal-work and fiber artist.

4. Lace, lace and lace!
