You might have guessed from previous projects that blue is one of my favourite colours and I’m really looking forwards to knitting with all of these fantastic shades.  In addition to blue, there are three other classic tonal palettes that you can choose: soft and natural; fresh evergreen or zingy spice to suit your mood and home.

There will be eight square release stages in total, with a square being released each fortnight (48 squares in total) and a final and ninth release on 12th May 2016 featuring the edging design.

You can also listen to Martin talk about the KAL on You Tube here: Martin Storey KAL 2 You Tube Interview  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s progress and I hope to share some more photos on my blog and facebook page too.  Needles ready!
