Socially Distant Summer KAL/CAL #DYNTSummer2020
Feeling disconnected from your fiber friends lately? Darn Yarn understands that during a time when we can’t physically be near our fiber pals, we need a little interaction and friendly (virtual) gathering to bring back some familiarity and fun.
July 16th – August 5th, we are hosting a KAL/CAL , and get this – you can make absolutely whatever you want! Make whatever your heart desires as long as it is done in a summer friendly fiber. For example, you could use cotton, linen, silk, or even a blend of wool with cotton, etc. There are plenty of great options at the shop right now, and I am personally choosing the Mirasol Kancha wool/cotton blend to make the “Summer Secret Crop” by Jessie Maed Designs, which I am super excited about. Look for the pastel rainbow on the wall of the shop and you’ll find this wonderful yarn! Also, it has amazing yardage, so it is certainly a great bang for your buck. Some other summery yarn options include Juniper Moons’ Zooey, which is a 60% cotton and 40% linen, Ella Rae’s Rustic Silk, and Queensland United washable organic cotton and wool. If you need some inspiration or want to take a look at some of the yarn just mentioned, there will be photos posted below! Also, these yarns will be 20% off specifically for this KAL/CAL.
There will be an event for this KAL/CAL posted on Facebook, so if you plan on joining (which I hope you do!) you can post your photos in there of what you’re planning to cast on, or perhaps what you are already working on! When posting use the hashtag #DYNTSummer2020.
On Tuesday, July 21st, Megan will be hosting a Facebook live at the shop at 1pm to get everyone together to see what we are all working on. Feel free to join the live even if you will not be participating and just want to hang out.
I hope to see you all there!
