Kanga Kiwi KAL: Kids!

February 12, 2018

As part of the annual Kanga Kiwi KAL, we're pleased to be both hosting a meet-up and offering a prize! 

Join us this Saturday, 17 February from 10.30am - 12.30pm for cake, crafting and good company

The Kanga Kiwi KAL is a celebration of all things NZ and Australia in the fibre world. To take part, you need to make something designed by a Kiwi or Aussie, with yarn produced in either of our fair countries. 

Here's a bunch of pattern and yarn ideas we think would make for great projects to take part - and these are all for kids!

Any baby would look instantly classy and elegant in Rhiannon McCulloch's Bow Tie Baby cardigan - with Knitsch Sock you could go muted and classic or modern and vibrant. There's also my eternal go-to for kid knits, that is Kelly van Niekerk's Baby Vertebrae:

The added bonus with all these options is that if you're time poor (like me!), you can still take part and be reasonably confident of finishing in time for the deadline for entries. Hooray!
