Baking and knitting are two creative outlets that became sources of comfort during the pandemic. When we bake, we get a tasty treat to eat; When we knit, the finished object isn’t edible, but it keeps us warm and nourishes the soul.
Lyrical Knits’ upcoming mystery knit-a-long marries both baking and knitting in Stark Baking Mad: Great British Baking Shawl 2 — an homage to The Great British Baking Show. Like the show, the MKAL will rise to the occasion with a bit of camp, a recipe with each clue, and an occasional pun.
The mystery shawl pattern is worked with four skeins of sock yarn in three colors (two skeins of the MC, one skein each of CC1 and CC2), and preorders are available until November 10th when the first clue drops.
