It’s not too late to join the KAL; it runs through July 10. Prize drawings for participants every week, and a special drawing for finishers at the end.

It’s also not too late to snag the discount for newsletter subscribers on the pattern, and on Fierce Fibers’ gradient yarn. Both of those discounts run through the end of June. (Hurry!) If you’d like to subscribe to the PDXKnitterati newsletter, let me know in the comments. It’s not the same as subscribing to this blog.

I’m making progress on my KAL shawl, too. I spent a very pleasant few hours in the air with a free movie (thanks, Alaska Airlines!), prosecco, and knitting. Because it was the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, I chose Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and was amused that there was a Dumbledore knitting reference in it! ⚡️

I’m finished with my short rows, so it’s on to the top edging.

My favorite view flying is Mt. Hood and the Cascade range. Here are the views outbound last Saturday

And inbound last night

I love the blue sky and the peaks of Hood, Jefferson, and the Sisters, but the texture of the clouds with Hood and Jefferson is even more interesting.

We had a great weekend celebrating mom-in-law’s birthday, and now I’m back home knitting, knitting, knitting. Designing and deadlines!

How was your weekend?

    Hello! I would love to sign up to the newsletter! My email is nagevgirl@gmail.com. I’m hoping to join in the Bee’s KAL and would definitely appreciate a discount code for pattern and gradient kit in the newsletter. Thank you!!!!

  2. I noticed Mt Hood in your tags, I am going there this October with 3 of my sisters to visit our nephew/son who lives there. (Charles Crocker) I’m looking for a KAL that I can work on, will you be starting a new one soon?

    • Hi, Joceline: I don’t have another KAL lined up for a little while, but it’s not too late to join this one! We’re going through July 10. It’s knit at your own pace; it’s just nice to have the camaraderie and chat on the Ravelry thread. Let me know if you’d like to join.

      Mt. Hood is beautiful! It’s always breathtaking when I see it, even when I’m just driving around Portland. Where are you coming from, to visit?

      Cheers, Michele
