KAL Winners

At the time voting ended (which was midnight last Monday night) we had an even tie between Bella Paquita and Giselle (both by Marnie MacLean). Bella Paquita is a free pattern from Marnie's site, and Giselle is available at Stitch Diva for $7.00. At the time voting ended, Snow White by Ysolda had 11% of the votes so will not be included in this KAL despite coming in a close third. There are no other knit alongs (that I'm aware of) for the Snow White pattern, but for those of you who prefer to knit it, please feel free to start your own knit along for it!

We'll officially begin the Bella Paquita/Giselle KAL on January 21st and will continue it until the end of March, but for those of you who are chomping at the bit to start, please feel free!

As always, you'll need to request posting privileges to post for this new knit along as all previous posters will have to be deleted (due to technical Blogger reasons).

Wow, I couldn't be more flattered.
With BP being a free pattern, it's not as comprehensive as it could be. I know this might make it a little tougher for people who are used to lots of sizes. I'll definitely do my best to help people with questions they have. Please feel free to contact me with questions.

I think Giselle is in good shape, having been carefully tech edited and test knit by multiple people. Still, I'm happy to offer clarification or answer questions if you have any.

Thanks so much for picking my patterns.

hi hi everyone! this is my first kal with skc. pretty excited about this one since i haven't knitted myself a top in quite a while. i ordered my yarn for belle paquita last night. going to try to use classic elite miracle (should be good gaugewise, dunno about how the lace + angora fuzzies will mix). what's everyone else thinking of using?

Ok, I'm in. I'll be doing BP in Valley Yarns Colrain in Olive Grey. Should work just fine.

I ordered my yarn and it was delayed - so it won't be here until Wednesday! Drat.

This is my first KAL with SKC, do we just post here, or do we go through that other account we had to make up?
