Knitalong at The Fiber Gallery: Rosencrantz & Guildenstern

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern

Rosencrantz, by Noriko Ho // Guildenstern, by Cory Ellen Boberg

Every year, The Fiber Gallery participates in our local Puget Sound LYS Tour, and this year, my friend and coworker Noriko & I decided to team up and create not one, but two patterns in celebration of the Tour!

Noriko's Rosencrantz design uses two strands of yarn and 3 colors to create a cool, marled effect, while my Guildenstern design uses two-row stripes and 4 colors to create a color-shifting stripe sequence. They both feature Queensland Collection United, a wool/cotton blend, and have easy finishing for speedy knitting and wearability.

We've gotten such great feedback about these two designs that we decided to host a little Knitalong at the shop, starting this Sunday and meeting once a month this summer!

I've already knit two Guildensterns in super different colorways, and I hope that KAL will be a chance for folks to play with color, share their awesome projects, and get some fiber community love (and prizes!) for participating.
