TFA Colour Knit Along!

Last week I mentioned that I was so pumped about my new Palettes that Julie and I came up with the idea to do a TFA Colour inspired knit along. We've worked out the details and are ready to get the colour wheel rolin'! The rules are extremely simple:

1) knit any project in the world that uses more than one colourway of TFA yarn. That's it, that's all. The rest is up to you. If you feel like challenging yourself, try something complex or large scale. If you want to participate but don't think that you can commit to all over colourwork sweater, knit yourself a 2-colour striped scarf! Easy as pie. 

2) cast on day is May 14th, cast off is June 17th, that's 5 full weeks to complete your project.

The KAL will be hosted over in the TFA Group on Ravelry. Julie has kindly set us up with a KAL thread here, check it out for more details.  

To get you in a colourful state of mind I've come up with a few mood boards featuring some of the colourful projects I've knit in TFA.

Of course there are lots of other pattern/project options. I can't wait to see what you come up with!


  1. Wish I could participate, but new yarn is just not in the budget right now. One day. Your yarn is gorgeous, and one day I'll be able to play with it.

  2. What fun! Was planning on stopping by to make some purchases at Frolic this weekend anyhow. Just need more hours to knit....SIGH!!!!!

  3. Hmm...maybe if I get my deadline knitting done in time, I can join....that striped Honeytree vest is amazing!

  4. So many inspiring imagines!! I'm a sucker for that colour block striped scarf in particular.

  5. Ohhhhh...this is tempting!

    I have got to get my hands on some of your yarn. It's one of my new year's resolutions to knit with it. I keep petting Jane's every time I see it. I'm dreaming of my Summer Sweater Knit Along being in's my bday in June and I'm hoping I can convince the hubs :)

  6. Hmmm, I do have two skeins from the TFA Year in Colour Club that I haven't knit up yet ... I think I'll do a pattern search and join in!
