St. Patrick’s Day Knit-A-Long 2009

Join the Dublin Knit Collective’s St. Patrick’s Day 2009 Knit -a-long (KAL). It is very simple; knit something in a celtic/Irish/ St. Patrick’s Day theme and complete it by St. Patrick’s Day.

In order to join this KAL, please leave a comment or send me a message on Ravelry by March 1st.

Here are the rules:
1) Knit with an aran tweed type yarn such as Kilcarra , DB Donegal Tweed, Bergere de France Celtic.
2) Choose an Celtic/Irish/St. Paddy’s Day themed pattern from your own library or the Ravelry pattern data base.
3) Start knitting once you have yourself organized.
4) Post your progress on your blog or the DKC forum Ravelry so that your fellow knitting mates can see how you are getting along with your project.
5) Don’t forget to post your finished project either on your project page in Ravelry or your blog by March 17th.

Ideas for your St. Paddy’s Day KAL project. There are many patterns in the Ravelry search engine, and here is a small sample of patterns that you can use Kilcarra.
