The Votes Are in!

First - Thank you to all who voted for our KAL! Now that the people have spoken- I am pleased to announce that we have a tie!

I thought short and soft about it, and decided that two proposed projects could very well have a fight to the death. But what a waste of YARN!
So, why not just do both!?!

          Henrietta Maria    

Otto the Polar Bear

The knitting officially starts July 8th, but feel free to start now if you want! We'll kick off the knitting  July 8th and focus on the KAL projects on mondays. We are already getting short on Otto patterns, but have a call in for more - and you can get Henrietta Maria on Ravelry.  

So pick which one you would like to do, choose your yarn, and show up on KnitNight and we'll compare our projects, help each other, give tips to those in need of assistance, and on the night of our unveiling of our finished projects - Perhaps we could have a little shindig and have goodies to celebrate the finish of our KAL.

The runner up was very clearly the Percy Shawl, and boy was I kinda hoping for that one in a way (so I had a reason to knit it too!). So the NEXT KAL for early fall may surely have to be Percy. It was fun to vote, and fun for me to watch the little bars climb higher and higher. Go grab your needles, lug in your knitting bag of yarn, and let's get our Henriettas and Ottos going - I'll be CASTING ON (AGAIN) tonight. And since I actually already am in the Henrietta KAL on Ravelry, my little Otto shall begin!
Can't wait to see you all, either online or in shop!
Happy Knitting!!!
