Vittorio Knitalong!

So the love for Vittorio has made me super, super happy. It's been a busy and exhausting few months and to have it come out to such appreciation has been quite the blessing. So thank you! But just to be clear this pattern would not be awesome were it not for Dyeabolical's amazing yarn. Even if the Flower Shop Inferno colorway is sold out, any of her gorgeous variegates would work! So we're having a knitalong. And here's the very loosely structured rules:

1. Start a Vittorio shawlette anytime before noon EST on April 23rd.

2. Set-up proof of project. This can be a Rav project page (preferred), a link to a blog entry, or a link to photo hosted elsewhere online (flickr, etc.) Said pictures just have to show that you've cast-on. We ain't setting any lofty Speedy Gonzalez goals here!

3. Comment on this entry with the link to your proof of project.

That's it! I will be offering pattern support and chit-chat in the PicnicKnits group on Ravelry. I will have weekly drawings on Mondays, starting April 23rd, and continuing for four weeks. Each Monday I will choose two winners from the following fabulous prizes:

This amazing handspun yarn by Heather Zoppetti of digitalnabi - she's also an amazing designer! It's 434 yards of polwarth in a heavy fingering weight.

Also by Heather, these stitch markers, guaranteed to make you squee and available in her Etsy shop.

The amazing excel program Gauge Master by fairieknits, who also designs purty things!

A $20 gift certificate to Palm Valley Fiber, handspun yarns from my very own Kimber. Yes, she mine. No, you can't have her!

A set of large stitch markers from BeaGin Design. Love the no snags!

A skein of yarn from Dyeabolical Yarns. And just to let you know I will totally be designing with her stuff again. The colors, the squooshiness.. it's amazing stuff. I actually have a lace shawl in progress that I will give you a sneak peek of tomorrow!

And lastly, a copy of each of my e-books, Sideways Shawlettes (which contains 8 other sideways patterns) and the Seven Songs.

So make sure you follow the rules - comment here to enter with the link to your proof of project. Good luck!
