Join me for the Yarnbox Sweater KAL/CAL Event!

Moving from Iowa to Tennessee is a big change -- not just because of the location, but also because of the weather. The big, heavy sweaters that kept me warm in -30 F probably won't be a lot of use to me here where the temperatures barely get lower than 30 F most winter long. The only solution is obviously to cast on for a few light-weight sweaters!

Luckily, we've sent out some beautiful garment-worthy yarns through Yarnbox in the past few months, and I felt like it was the perfect time to start a Lightweight Sweater KAL/CAL for the members in the Ravelry group. I'm going to be copying another Ravelry member's project, which is a combo of Joji Locatelli's Boxy sweater (which I have already made once) and the Cancun Boxy Lace top. I fell in love with this version from Pooki and now just have to have one of my own in gorgeous Shibui Knits Linen. I chose the Sidewalk colorway and can't wait to get started.

This KAL/CAL lasts until October, so there's plenty of time to get going on your project and work on it along with a few other things simultaneously. You can post to the group on Ravelry or tag projects on other social media platforms with #YBSummerSweaterKAL -- I'll be posting my progress to Instagram too!
