Community Update #29

My yarns are winning in Bernat Yarn Madness!  Woo Hoo!  I'm gonna keep cheering for Handicrafter Cotton, Mosaic, and Softee Baby - so PUMPED to see which ones are gonna compete in the final four showdown.  Can you predict which Bernat yarns will be in that arena?

Our 2013 CAL/KAL Temperature Scarves are now three months long.  You can see photos of several of our projects HERE.   Mine is running a bit late, but I'm still adding rows whenever I have a moment to grab my knitting needles and yarn.   Some of our Bernat Forum members are surprised to be using some of our warmer color choices during the cold season, and vice versa.  This will certainly make our projects bright and colorful!

Last week, I asked for your input on which Bernat project you would like to make together as a knit-along or crochet-along in the forum.  Patty recommended the Bamboo Crochet Vest,  made with yummy Bernat Bamboo yarn.  LOVE!!!

It's an easy pattern, and that gorgeous, squishy yarn will make for a DELICIOUS crochet experience.  And the free pattern comes in so many sizes (XS - 5X)!  Bernat is wonderful about providing a vast sizing array for their patterns.  Would you be interested in making this project together as a crochet along (CAL) in the Bernat Forums?



Love this vest. Would really like to make it. Can we please have another mystery afghan in the future or alongside this one? Love the mystery ones !!! Thanks

This would be a great CAL, and I happen to have a bag of this yarn in my stash to use up! Let's do it :-)

Yes! I have worked with this yarn before, making a deep V-necked top from one of your patterns in Wicker and loved the way it turned out. The stitch patterns in the vest look interesting, and with no sleeves, it will be done quickly and can be worn in spring and summer. Let's do it! BTW, I agree with the poster who wants to bring back the Mystery CAL/KAL Afghan.

Stay tuned! Our Bamboo CAL will be happening soon! :)

I would like to join this CAL. Thank you for doing the hard work for us.
