As you may know, the Indie Design Gift-A-Long is underway over on Ravelry (yippee), and there are 335 participating designers who have generously put over 5000 of their patterns on sale for 25% off to help you conquer your holiday knitting (use code giftalong2015). That is a LOT of stuff to sort through. If you visit the group's homepage, you will see a row of tabs; click on Bundles to see all the patterns available, and click on Search to take you to the usual Ravelry search screen pre-filtered with all the participating patterns. From there you can refine your search to your heart's content.
For another way to sift through the riches of the GAL, I thought I'd introduce you to a bunch of my talented friends. I am always blown away by how many ways there are to work with sticks and string! Here, in no particular order, are five of my friends' bundles for your delectation. Clicking on the images should take you to their designer pages where their GAL bundles are featured.
|Brandon Knitting Designs (Varian Brandon) - fair isle gorgeousness|
The Knight's Banner Cowl is my favorite at the moment
|Karen Dawn Designs (Karen Robinson) - hats and shawls and cowls, oh my!|
Check out the Clairvaux Baby Blanket
|PicnicKnits (Corinna Ferguson) - lightweight lovelies from this Florida designer|
Longfellow is speaking to me right now
|Stariel Knits (Ariel Altaras) - beautiful socks and accessories|
If I were to knit socks, Jera might be my first choice
|Rock + Purl (Ruth Garcia-Alcantud) - exciting garments and accessories|
Aligned Spaces is so my thing!
Which #giftalong2015 patterns are calling your name? I'll be back tomorrow with five more bundles from my talented friends.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy knitting!
