Hi, Knitters,
Today I am sharing a few of the finished Quaker Ridge Shawlettes (QRS) from the knitalong that just ended. There are already over 200 posted projects on ravelry and during the knitalong we had 155 knitters finish their shawls.

Click here for the QRS knitalong thread (6,700 posts with almost 300 knitalong participants)!

Tomorrow I will be posting the prizes for the drawings and the winners from the QRS Knitalong...... I have lined up some amazing prizes (yarns and products) and I can't wait to share. In the meantime, here are a few of the finished shawls.

Well, there you have a small sampling of the shawls. There are so many more and all are lovely. The participants used all sorts of yarn from different companies and even handspun and hand-dyed yarns. Some followed the pattern exactly, others added their own twist. Some added beads and ruffles, others kept is simple. The range of colors and styles is so inspiring to see.

I'd like to thank everyone for joining in and participating. It was really fun. The shawls are beautiful. Please continue to post any finished shawls in the knitalong thread on Ravelry.

I'll see you tomorrow with the winners. You won't want to miss the fantastic prizes being featured even if you didn't join in the knitalong. I bet there might even be a couple of things you haven't heard of before.
best, susie

Yayyyy thanks for including me! I don't really love that picture of myself, but I love that you thought it was good enough to post :-) I had a lot of fun with this KAL and would love to do another, especially with my friend Kelly!
