Galleries for our test knitalongs

One of funnest and most inspiring things about knitalongs is the way everybody has their own take on the same project or task. It’s like hearing a dozen different singers do the same great song.We wanted to capture that spirit in the book, so we ran six different knitalongs while we were writing it — which turned into six short chapters called “Larissa’s knitalong diaries.” There wasn’t nearly enough room in print show off all the fantastic contributions, so we’ve made online galleries of a few more of our favorites here. And if that’s not enough, follow the links out to the live groups at flickr and ravelry.com — where you can add your own stuff to the mix.[note- this section of the website is still under development]
