Playin’ My Song Mystery Knit-Along 2023

We’ve got the music playing, the yarn dyed, punch bowl filled, and we’re ready for SweetGeorgia Yarn’s 6th Annual Mystery Knit-Along (MKAL)!

So I put my hands up,
They’re dyein’ my yarn
The needles all click away
I’m noddin’ my head like, yeah,
Knittin’ my shawl like, yeah…

Know the song? We’re letting the hair down and going wild with our mystery knit this year. This fun stole features a unique trapezoid shape, a variety of stitch patterns, and playful colour arrangements that keep everyone entertained. Grab your needles and invite your friends, because the party starts right here!
