KAL with Franklin Habit and Tin Can Knits!

Let's all close our eyes for a minute and fast forward past the holiday wonder and madness and imagine that we finished all of our projects with plenty of time left over to enjoy an extra glass of eggnog. Yeah, I know it's magical thinking, but this is my story and that's how I want it to go.

That post holiday lull is probably my favorite time of the year when it comes to projects. No pressure, just fun. It can be anything I want it to be. I have time to join in a KAL if I want and maybe have a little fun with my yarn peeps.

We were talking the other day about how we might want a KAL to look and decided that Franklin Habit would make a wonderful master of ceremonies. As luck would have it, he was available! Rumor on the street tells me that Ms. Dolores Van Hoofen will be joining in as well! Did I hear a squee?!

The next question was what do we want to work on? We all agreed that a blanket would be ideal. We liked the idea of working on something cozy. Plus, Tin Can Knits had just released their new book, Colour Madness and the Marley Blanket had struck all of us as SO DARN CUTE.

See, I told you!

It's pretty simple with lots of garter stitch and a tiny bit of lace to keep things interesting. Oh, and it shows off color like it's nobody's business.

The pattern is written for three weights of yarn. Our Cloudgate is perfect for the Bulky and Shepherd Worsted is great for the Aran.

We've created 5 special color packs for you to choose from They will be available in both yarns.






And last but not least Rosamund 

The blanket comes in four sizes. Here's how many packs you'll need for each size.

Cloudgate SM=1, MED=2 LG=3 XL=4

Shepherd Worsted SM/MED=1, LG=2 XL=3

We'll be running the KAL on the Lorna's Laces Ravelry page starting on January 1. There will be FB Live posts and other fun as we knit 

Tin Cat Knits, Mrs. Crosby and of course Lorna's Laces will be providing prizes along the way. 
Reach out to your LYS for your yarn. A few have even reached out to us for special color packs. 

This is gonna be fun! Whose in?
