Pebble Beach Shawl  by Curious Handmade has been rereleased with two new sizes. See details about the KAL at the end of the post. The discount code for 30% off all of Curious Handmade Designs is KPKAL30. Enjoy and I hope you join us in this very easy-going knit along. Helen’s designs are very relaxing to knit so I think our relaxed approach is perfect for a KAL.

Pebble Beach KAL with Curious Handmade.

Helen Stewart , also known as Curious Handmade is re-releasing her Pebble Beach Shawlette
and to celebrate we are hosting a Knitting Pipeline KAL of her designs.

The rules are very open.You may use any project knit from one of Helen’s patterns for this KAL. You may participate with projects already completed or in process before the start of the KAL, in addition to new projects. Please consider knitting the re-released Pebble Beach, but any of her patterns qualifies. The KAL will run from May 5 through July 5.

Helen has generously provided a coupon code for a discount of 30% off of any ONE item for use with any of her patterns from May 5 through May 31. The discount code is KPKAL30

We will have 2 KAL threads on the KP Board, one for general KAL chatter and one for photos of Finished Objects, with no chatter. Please remember to post pictures of your finished objects in both threads, so Pipeliners can compliment projects, and not run afoul of the “no-chatter” considerations in the FO thread. Each FO should have its own project and picture post in the FO thread; this means that multiple entries are allowed per person. Please tag your project PebblebeachKAL, and use social media #pebblebeachKAL. The more the merrier!

There will be several prizes awarded, including this skein of Lace Merino from The Uncommon Thread
and other items to be announced later. The winners will be determined by the Random Number Generator (RNG) method of post numbers in the FO thread. (This is why we can’t have chatter in the FO thread.)

Please join the fun and help us celebrate Helen’s designs.

Have a great week, haste ye back, and hold your knitting close.
