#outlanderKAL has begun!

We kicked off the in-person #outlanderKAL today at Serial Knitters!

The pattern, Highland Plumes, was inspired by¬†this picture from¬†costume designer Terry Dresbach‘s blog:

My version looks like this:

Not a bad match, hm?

Here is my LYS owner’s version in Malabrigo Mecha:

Everyone is going crazy for that one, and no surprise. It glows! So, we got the knitters together today for part one of an in-person KAL.

Aren’t they adorable?

The majority of knitters, inspired by Debie Frable’s model, chose Malabrigo Mecha for the piece. ¬†Second place, with two knitters, was the Classic Elite Chalet yarn, and one bold knitter chose the mega Malabrigo Rasta. All of the colors chosen were beautiful!

We kicked off by watching the steamy preview for the second half of season one. Have you seen it? Looky here: http://www.starz.com/…/vid…/da6176d76bb04503a0125c17febdbde0

Then, a few tutorials. New learning included: long tail cast-on, long tail cast-on from two balls of yarn, chart reading, yarn-overs, marker placement and a variety of decreases.

HP Student Cowls

 

One great joy of knitting with bulky yarn? Major progress was made by the end of our first meeting. Here are two student projects, zipping along. (Malabrigo Mecha was used for both.)

Are you knitting Highland Plumes? Tag your Instagram and FB project photos with #outlanderKAL and #highlandplumes so everyone can oooh and ahhhh. I can’t wait to see all the cowls.
