You KAL knitters exceeded my expectations by a mile! So many beautful shawls and color choices. We had 49 finishers, a number of whom cast on more than one Silk Moon Shawlette.

Most FO’s Prizes

In honor of their initiative, here’s the last surprise: some special prizes for knitters who made more than one shawl!

Irishpat on Ravelry made no less than 7 shawlettes, and is the winner of this set of Hiya-Hiya stitch markers and dumpling bag! (She wasn’t active on the Ravelry group, but Amy Detjen, me and everyone at beloved LYS the Sow’s Ear can attest to her rapid progress on the shawls!)

Zbyszkoknits on Ravelry had at least 7 on the needles and finished five shawls during the KAL! She wins a skein of Pollika KnitGlobal sock yarn and mesh project bag.

Jan229, Wburton,Valuable and Kganster each finished two! Of those four, the Random Number generator picked Valuable to win a Spud and Chloe gift bag.

We’ll have a drawing very soon for the Stash and New yarn categories; just want to make sure I hear from eveyrone about which yarn they used first.

KAL Member Prizes

The Silk Moon Group has 163 members! You don’t have to have finished anything for these prizes, just have joined the knitalong party.

The winner of the Pretty Cheep project bag and Spud & Chloe gift bag is Weeziemom on Ravelry!

The Spud and Chloe bag and keychain winner is jchant on Ravelry!

The Grand Prize

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for:

All of the 49 finishers are eligible to take home three skeins of Noro Kureyon yarn to make another Silk Moon Shawlette.

The Random Number Generator has spoken and the winner is: Sarebearknits on Ravelry!!!!!!

All winners have been notified via Ravelry message boards.

This was so much fun, we’ll definitely do it again; I have a project up my sleeve that I think you shawl knitters would really enjoy. I’m also working on a fingering-weight version of the Silk Moon pattern, which will be part of the Knitting Recipes: Shawls and Scarves e-book, and I hope to release that pattern in the next few months. So maybe we’ll revive the KAL for both versions just in time for the gift-knitting season….

Thanks again so much to Susan B Anderson for her support throughout the KAL and to all of the wonderful knitters who participated.
