I’m so excited to announce a new year-long project called the Traveling Afghans. The Traveling Afghans will be a collaborative effort amongst 49 knitwear designers and bloggers from seven different countries!
Starting in January, the Traveling Afghans will set sail from NYC and journey to a new designer every two weeks. Each designer will create a 10"x10" square to add to either the knit or the crochet blanket before sending it off to the next person to add theirs. They will each publish their pattern for free online so YOU can follow along with us and create your own knit or crochet afghan! This year-long collaborative effort will feature stories from the designers about their paths as makers, and will give you the opportunity to learn new stitches and make new friends in the community along the way.
Yarn @ ZelLé have joined forces with the amazing Bahia Art Yarn to create beautiful kits for you using their Pinto range.
The kits include a beautiful project bag and all the yarn you need to complete this project.
You can choose to either come and share a morning with me each month to work on your squares or you can work from home.
If you chose to the 'away version' you will receive a monthly package with the yarn needed to complete the 2 squares released each month.
There is a knit and a crochet version to this afghan.
You also have the option to pay for the kits over 10 months.
