Atlantica KAL Wrap-Up

Our most ambitious sweater KAL yet has just wrapped up. We thoroughly enjoyed knitting along with folks from near and far. Together we stitched up Atlantica by Audrey Borrego. Released in Pom Pom Quarterly: 34, the pullover features lace, cables, and bobbles, for maximum display of our knitting prowess!

Two intricately textured sweaters lay on pavement, damp with spring rain. One is a dark brown marl, and one is pale peach marl. They both feature lace, bobbles, and cables knit in a laceweight Icelandic yarn.

This was our first ever all virtual knitalong and it was so fun to connect with knitters once a month over zoom. We tried out a new community platform with this kal, Discord, and we've been messaging away as we knit our sweaters. A huge thank you to everyone who joined us and shared this epic sweater journey with us. We have a few prizes to announce for our KAL participants!

Prize for Best Finished Sweater Photo goes to @luna__nunez, for this lovely photo of her first sweater! Can you believe this beautiful blue Atlantica is the first sweater she's ever knit AND she was one of the first KALers to complete her sweater!? We are so impressed!

Luna stands outside near a porch door, wearing the denimy blue Atlantica pullover she recently knit.

Prize for Best In-Progress Photo goes to @melanie.madeit. The almond-y color palette of all her sweet projects is making us hungry!

An in-progress Atlantica sweater in warm almond hues lays flat on a white surface. It is surrounded by it's yarn balls, and a cute sewing project in similar colors that is also in-progress, using adorable fabric featuring an animal cookie print.

Each winner receives 5 skeins of Lopi Einband, generously donated by Berrocco, stitch markers from Firefly Notes, and a $50 gift card to your favorite craft store, Fancy Tiger Crafts. 

We were so thrilled to see everyone's progress during this the Atlantica KAL, here are some of the beautiful sweaters in-progress and finished.

Amber and Jaime stand outside in front of a tall wooden fence on a rare damp day in Denver. They both wear their finished Atlantica pullovers: Amber's in a deep brown marl, and Jaime's in a pale peachy marl.
Thanks so much for joining us! Jaime and I will be sharing more about our individual sweaters soon. 

Also, stay tuned for a summer knit-along to be announced in a few weeks!
