One of our Patrons from the Wool n’ Spinning community approached me about a knit-along and over the course of the past couple of weeks, Cari (@glowbeautyfromwithin on Instagram & carig on Ravelry) sent me a few (many) messages about different ideas around her mini rainbow sets. I loved the colours – especially the yellows and blues – and decided to cast on a shawl that would be my project throughout the Christmas season. I’ve talked before about my yearly shawl cast on in the Christmas season that becomes a yearly prayer shawl. Last year’s shawl ended up being ripped out, which I was really bummed about but the yarn and pattern weren’t a good match. I knew if I continued, I would regret leaving the yarn unused in the shawl. It all worked out because in the end, that yarn became another vanilla shawl that I am totally smitten with to this day.

For this knit-along, there aren’t really any rules – Cari is offering everyone a discount from her shop in order to participate and to be honest, I’m really looking forward to what people come up with when using their mini sets. Cari has labelled them on the website with Fall-la-la Kal so that you can identify them quickly and easily. For all participants, Cari is offering 15% off with the coupon code welfordpurls15. If you are a Patreon member, please head over here for your special code! These codes can be used for all Fall-la-la Kal kits, individual skeins and mini sets. She has uploaded an incredible number of semi-solids to coordinate with the mini sets. After much indecision, I chose to go with Birch as my coordinating colourway:

I’m thinking about designing something for my mini set – A striped shawl that will evolve through the colours, alternating with the Birch until I run out, then a knitted-on border … but we shall see how it works out. Some of the other colour combinations had me ogling the screen, so I thought I’d share some of them with you! These were among my favourites:
