KAL Nomination

Okay...I saw this and thought that it might be perfect for the next KAL. The kit is reasonable and includes the pattern and the yarn. You can also purchase any color that is available, just note the change in the comment section of the checkout.

It takes three skeins for the XS, SM, and Medium and four for the LG and XL. Not a bad deal....

Edit Update: I received an email from kpixie - If we want to use this pattern, they have no problem with everyone picking from any of the colors of the Blue Sky Alpacas Cotton Yarns. There are 29 colors of the dyed cotton plus 6 colors in the organic cotton to choose from. My entire order, including Shipping & Handling came to $35.10. If we select this one, the gals at kpixie will make sure that they have plenty of yarn on hand. We just need to remember to specify the color we want in the comments section of the order form.

I can't wait to see the final nomination post.....

The pattern might be great. I have admired the pattern, but I don't think a kit that does not allow color choice is in the spirit of the KAL.

I love this group because we each can interpret the pattern in different yarn and color choices.

If we could find this pattern by itself, then it would be a viable choice.

I just ordered the kit last week and changed the color from poppy to lemonade in the comment section with no extra charge. But we can purchase the pattern for $4.00 from them as well. The best part I thought about this was the fact that it is cotton and there are so many choices. I'll email kpixie for details on how to get the pattern and post them too.

I love this pattern and the Blue Sky cotton is AMAZING to work with! Plus they have a huge selection of colors to choose from - and you can't find a better vendor than Kpixie!
