Knit Up and Dye Episode 16 - Intentions



In this episode, I show off my progress on the Curiosity scarf by Barbara Benson and talk about how a friend is doing it differently (and how I wish I had too), discuss how I'm advancing with my improvised curse breaking sweater, and show off five new colorways exclusive to the Intention Knitting KAL kits - which are available for presale now in my Etsy shop.

Be sure to visit Chain344's podcast on YouTube.

Intention Knitting KAL

Left to Right: Harmony, Empowerment, Success, Achievement, Sanctuary

Pre-order is now open for the Intention Knitting KAL kits. Choose the colorway that speaks to you!

Your kit will include one skein of Tap Monkey (75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon 100g/463 yards) in your chosen colorway and a digital copy of "Good Vibrations" sock pattern - $28 USD, plus shipping.

Kits will ship February 6, 2017 with KAL to begin February 12, 2017.

The Intention Knitting KAL is a project of meditative gratitude knitting. The sock pattern is a simple slip stitch textured sock in multiple sizes designed to make the most of your variegated yarn while providing you an opportunity to focus on key words, emotions, and thoughts of gratitude. By simply choosing a mantra, feeling or memory that resonates with your desired happiness and bringing it to the forefront of your thoughts while working on your project, you will infuse this positivity into your project, making it a meaningful gift for yourself or a loved one.

Which colorway resonates with you? What energies do you want to knit into your socks?

Harmony features tones of silver, white and pink to encourage a stronger connection with the self, quieting the mind and encouraging love of oneself.

Empowerment is comprised of tonal variants of vibrant reds and plum purple calling for respect, building passion and directing your personal power into focus.

Success glows with warm marigold tones of rich gold and warm orange tones enriching your sense of security, enacting motivation and setting prosperity into motion.

Achievement boldly blends rich mossy greens with iris blues organizing the mind, structuring thoughts and building ambitions towards your goals.

Sanctuary soothes the soul with silver strands of privacy, peaceful soft blues, and protective black boundaries creating your own personal mental safehouse.
