Hufflepuff Shawl KAL/ Vickie Howell's Long-Distance Shawl KAL

I'm doing two KAL's in one this coming month!  My Hufflepuff pals and I are doing a shawl KAL, in which you can choose any pattern and any yarn.  I'm also joining in on Vickie Howell's current KAL (they appear in each issue of *Knit Simple* magazine).  I've done some Vickie Howell KALs before and I love them.  There is a group on Ravelry and Facebook that you can join to see how others are doing, too!

Today is the official cast-on date for the Hufflepuff Shawl KAL, and I've got my supplies ready!
I'm using Annie Yarn Madison worsted in O'Tealy.  I don't know if you can see from the picture, but it is crazy gorgeous... lots of tealy, greeny, bluey shades all mishmashed together in three skeins of gorgeousness.  Last night I got the yarn wound up into cakes, and as silly as it may sound, I hated to unskein these!!!  The skeins were beautifully braided, and call me crazy, but there is just something beautiful about a lovely yarn wrapped up into its fancy little skein.  Cakes are cute, too, don't get me wrong... but skeins are so classy!

Okay, who else do you know who could go on and on about the beauty of a skein?  Yikes, crazy much?  Moving on!  As you can see, I've got my issue of *Knit Simple* with the pattern right there and ready to go (and if you can't see how pretty the finished shawl is in this picture, go check it out on Ravelry or get yourself the magazine... it is so pretty!).  I'm using my favorite Knit Picks interchangeables, size 7, and of course a Harry Potter bag by Slipped Stitch Studios.  Gotta represent!!!!!

And that is all for now... I'm so anxious to cast on!

BIG CHANGES for The Knitting Broomstick in 2018!!!

Hello everyone!  I feel like it has been far too long since I have chatted with you all.  It's so nice to finally be posting and sharing some things that have been on my heart for awhile now.  I will warn you in advance that this post is long, so feel free to skip over the parts that don't interest you! 

You will find updates in this post concerning my personal life, crafting, the Knitting Broomstick podcast, the 13 Months of Magic KAL (and other KALs), and the Knitting Broomstick Etsy shop.  I have added headers, in bold, so that you can easily skip to the sections that are of interest to you.  And if you read the whole entire thing; I owe you a massive cup of tea!!!!  ;)

PERSONAL:

First, I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season!  I can't believe it is almost over, but it has been a great one and I'm thankful for the time I have had with my family.  It was definitely a different holiday season; a bit of a slower one for us, and that has been nice. 

Almost ever…
