It's time for our finale post for the Summer Sweater Knit Along 2014 - the one STARRING YOU!
Can I just say WOW! You guys blew my mind this year! The amount of gorgeous and lovely projects finished this year were amazing! It took me forever to go through them all but boy was it fun! I love seeing all your handiwork. It's truly so fulfilling to see you all loving knitting and sharing it with each other.
There was lots of constructive chat about fit, techniques and more this year! I noticed a ton more colorwork than previous years thanks to some awesome patterns released like Diana Walla's stunning Sundottir
! Sundottir was a hit of the KAL! I'm dying to make one too now! It was a thrill to have her join in on the SSKAL along with the fabulous sewing pattern designer Jen of Grainline
as well as lots of other fabulous & talented ladies in our industry! Along with colorwork there was also lots of color this year! I love when that happens! Now don't get me wrong, I adore neutrals, but color is always fun! There was also stripes, cables, lace and more and I enjoyed seeing some men's patterns finished as well as little boy garments! That's right - you can even make baby and kids patterns in our SSKAL!

As usual I have so enjoyed knitting and reading along in the threads. It's like getting to have hundreds of friends to talk with everyday for 2 months! And the best part is we all try to stay in touch until the next one! Don't forget about our "chit chat
" thread where you guys can all still keep chatting and asking questions, and then you can continue to share your projects in the "WIP & FO's
" thread. There's no reason to become strangers now that the SSKAL
is over! Heck no, we want you to stay chatting, still making new friends, still enjoying our love of knitting! And if you missed some of the Summer Sweater Knit Along and want to catch up just pop on over to our SSKAL Homepage
