Featuring Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter

We are pleased to announce the next Progressive Needles KAL, sponsored by skacel and hosted once again by Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter.

First Clue for this KAL goes live on April 1, 2015!

I am so excited for the next installment of the Progressive Needles Knit Along! We return in April with Kaika, a toe up sock pattern that features Japanese-inspired stitches. Also included are a heel and bind off new to the series. Best of all, I am so proud to announce that Kaika will be knit with a yarn especially created for our KAL! The minds at skacel teamed up with the dyeing expertise of Schmutzerella to bring you this unsurpassed sock yarn. The soft and lofty yarn was specially dyed to create the sumptuous color way, “Let’s Make a Teal!” This limited edition yarn will be available while quantities last. I can’t wait to share the yarn, techniques and stitches with you this spring!
