Martin Storey KAL2 :: Stage 2&3

Stage 2:   
   

Stage 2 of the KAL features a fabulous slipped stitch Nordic square. I found this square a lot of fun to knit and very straight forward. The squares seemed to fly along.  I took one square on a day trip to Burton Bradstock in Dorset. Check out the fabulous Hive Beach Cafe if you’re in the area! We celebrated my husbands birthday with lunch there. It’s situated right on the beach itself and is even dog friendly selling healthy treats for your dog as well as some scrummy cakes.

Here’s my progress with stages 1 and 2 together:

  

Next up is the Stage 3 Textured Tree Square in light denim:

  
This square required a little more concentration but the chart provided by Rowan really helped and the tree pattern is really effective.

   
This square went with me for a spot of cafe knitting at the Garden Cafe in the Somerset town of Frome. Check out the lovely independent shops on the cobbled Catherines Hill if you get chance including the gorgeous florists Bramble and Wild where I bought some lovely Mothers Day blooms and the fabulous Marmalade Yarns

The next square for stage 4 will be released on Thursday 10th March marking the half way point in the KAL!

How are you getting on? Have you joined in with the KAL? If so, hope you are enjoying it 🙂
