Knit A-long, Yarn Tasting News

Bluefield Yarn Company




Sharon From Security is publishing her super cozy Glamping Blanket
in Berroco Vintage Chunky at the end of October. 

A KAL (Knit A-long) will begin on November 6.

Sharon from Security is Casapinka's (the designer) cat. 
Sharon tends to take over and is rather particular but has come into her own as a cat designer. 
You will enjoy the clues and the pattern and I'm sure you will be smiling
at the tongue-in-cheek humor inherent in Casapinka's and Sharon from Security patterns!  

This KAL will be alot of fun.  

As you can see in the pictures the blanket is like a stitch sampler.  This blanket is such a great way to explore new stitches and techniques.  Beginner knitters  - this is a great opportunity to learn some new skills and techniques. 
If it looks like you "can't" knit a certain stitch have no fear! 
Bluefield Yarn Company will be with you every step of the way during the KAL. 
Participants who purchase yarn from Bluefield Yarn Company for the KAL will receive
FREE assistance with any part of the KAL!  
I hope to schedule a few get togethers so we can share our progress and help each other out!  

You can call or visit the shop to pick out your yarn. 
If I don't have the color you'd like you can place an order and Berroco will drop ship your yarn for you! 

Another great yarn choice to use would be Berroco Comfort Chunky - a 100% acrylic alternative to wool.  
The gauge is 4 st/inch on a US 10 in stockinette st after a light steam blocking.
There are several sizes from which to choose. 
Below is yardage and skein requirement information for each size.

Sharon made her cat blanket in about a day - that's how fast it is.
