- What is a Knit Along (KAL)?
A knit along (also known as a KAL) is a social event where a group of people work on the same knitting project at the same time. The group may meet in person or online, and members may share their progress, ask for help or advice, and offer support to one another.
A KAL can be organized around a specific pattern or theme, and may have a start date and an end date. Some KALs are led by a host or moderator, who provides guidance and sets deadlines for completing different stages of the project. Other KALs are more casual, and participants may work at their own pace.
KALs can be a fun and social way to learn new knitting techniques and make progress on a project. They can also provide motivation and support for knitters who may be struggling with a difficult pattern or who want to stay on track with their knitting goals.
- What is a pi-shawl?
A pi-shawl is a type of shawl that is shaped like a circle and has a wide, circular span. It is typically knit in the round using circular needles or double-pointed needles, and may have a circular or semicircular shape when worn.
The name “pi-shawl” is derived from the mathematical symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, which is approximately 3.14159. This symbol, known as pi (π), is often used in geometry to represent the concept of circularity, and is the inspiration for the shape of the pi-shawl.
Pi-shawls are popular among knitters because they are easy to wear and can be dressed up or down, depending on the yarn and pattern used. They are also a good choice for knitters who are looking for a project that can be worked on over time, as the circular shape allows for easy additions and modifications.
