The lovely Lesley Robinson, AKA @knitgraffiti on Instagram & Ravelry, was scheduled to be at our 2020 Summer Staycation this July. Sadly, we both felt we should cancel the event.
She felt so bad about the situation, she felt compelled to make us something special. While she’s been Zooming with us for several weeks now, we’ve gotten to know her a bit better and absolutely adore the Lovely Lesley!
The pattern, which will be knit in Robin’s Promise Yarns, will be coming out July 24 and will be FREE with purchase of any Robin's Promise kits through Sept 4. If that wasn't enough fun, Lesley will be hosting a Knit-A-Long starting the same day with prizes being awarded to all the Robin's Promise knitters!
I am offering pre-orders now for the 2-color shawl kits. Below are the top 3 options voted on her Instagram pages and others that we have put together. If you don't find one that tickles your fancy, go a la carte and create your own - you will still receive the FREE pattern.
The kits will be available for pickup or shipping (depending on your selection at checkout) NOW.
The pattern is a simple shawl without brioche, and all yarns will be in fingering-weight Songbird - 463 yards of 75/25 superwash merino/nylon on each skein.
Lesley promises that the shawl will be easy peasey and features condo-knitting, one of her favorite techniques.
Once you have purchased your yarn, we will keep your name & email address on file. When Lesley releases the pattern toward the end of July, we will send out codes for your free pattern.
Be sure to join Lesley's Ravelry page to join the KAL, which starts July 24. Everyone knitting with Robin's Promise yarn has a very good shot at some very cool prizes!
