    Do WIP's count? I'd love to knit along and just started a new shawl a few days ago. (No worries if WIP's don't count.)

    I'm highly interested but would join in late.
    I'm actually a bit over-committed until after Christmas... I'd truly welcome a KAL for a larger project, such as a shawl, at that time. At the moment, it's a bit of a challenge to even sneak in a pair of socks... and I still have my UFO watermelon blanket to complete (hopefully this month).

      I totally understand. We would, of course, welcome you any time - even if it is just to check in and see what we are up to and say hi. :-)

    Count me in! I started a Papillon shawl last week and would love to participate.

ID:	31865 Is it too late to join? I didn’t notice this event til today. I have been working on “Cakes Two to Tango” shawl by Gwen Kok. I had downloaded this free pattern on R a while ago, made one using worsted, now doing it again using 2 cakes of Lion Brand Wool-Ease dk.

ID:	32065It's done! I finished it last night. Very pleased with it. Out of the 2 full cakes of Wool-Ease DK cakes, there are 55 yds left over, used 1124 yd. Final (unblocked) measurements are: 66" wingspan x 31" deep. The sides are 45" each. I used a small picot stitch for the 2 sides (from the pattern options) & just a single crochet along the top.

      I love the way the color changes. What pattern did you use?

      The name of the pattern is “two cakes to tango” (see #5 for more info on it). I used the same pattern once before with worsted weight - premier sweet roll & some red heart super saver that was gifted to me but it came out rather stiff. Not sure if it was the yarn or the hook was too small but this one was ‘just right’ 👍😉🤗

    I made this from the yarn I won in the September sock KAL.
    LizB offered a skein from her Etsy store, Yarn By the Bay. It's beautiful and so squishy!
