It will be a different and fun KAL* with lots of prizes to win (I still have some nice Shibui yarn left, that needs to find new friends real soon) and other classic KAL stuff going on, but there is a slight twist in the concept:
The idea is to transform, personalise, refashion and customise any of my patterns and to make it your own project that will be distinctively yours!
Participants are invited to mix any of my patterns or to add new texture and stitch-patterns to the design they want to work with... or to completely change it up to their liking and mood.
The creative possibilities are endless: everything in terms of fabric or colour-work can be modified or even parts of a completely different pattern can be implemented, to change bits or the whole style, so that it works for your body and your taste!
All of this will be done together in good company and if somebody needs any kind of help for the craziest modification they have dreamt up, we are here to support your dream and to share ideas in this KAL!
The technical bits:
The RevampKAL will start today, the 28th of October and will end on the 15th of December 2014.
Anybody can join at any time, there is no rush if you are too busy to cast on just right now.
As I said, there will be yarny prizes & free patterns to win at the end and during the KAL (every WIP/FO tagged with #RevampKAL and with a project-picture will be eligible for the random prize draw).
All of the La Maison Rililie patterns are eligible to work with and you can also incorporate stitches or other details from other patterns or stitch dictionaries that you own.
So, if you do like the idea of a totally creative modification-fest, come by to my group here.
So I decided that I will participate in my own KAL! (Yeah I know, that's not really the way it's done usually, but I don't see why I have to be the only one to stay out of the fun??)
I already cast on a sock which will feature one of the Orza stitch patterns.
From the very start, when I was just swatching for the design back then, I was wondering how this stitch pattern would look in a sock... and now I have a legitimate reason to leave everything behind and to actually work on my new Orza-sock, like right now....
Because well, it's KAL-time!
Thanks sooooo much guys!
