Have you been wondering what yarns you could use to make the patterns from JOURNEY?
We thought it would be fun to show you some yarn substitutes that we like for our patterns from JOURNEY for the knit along! We loooove the choices we have listed in the book but we know not everyone has access to those yarns and it's also fun to see the projects knit up in different yarns too! So I've compiled a list of some of the yarns that I would think of using (and some that others have knit the projects with)! I don't know about you but I love looking at people's FO's in different yarns! It's so fun!
I hope you enjoy the choices below and please feel free to suggest a yarn that you love too! I'd love to hear which one you'd love to use for my patterns!

If you're taking part in the JOURNEY KAL please dont' forget to tag your posts with #journeykal on FB, twitter and Instagram (and so on) so we can keep up with all your awesome pics! I've been having so much fun reading through them at night! And pop by Jane's blog tomorrow to see her yarn substitutions.
I'm in the process of revamping my Knit Along home page (can't wait to show you all!). It's still in the works but in the meantime you can find our new JOURNEY KAL homepage! You can always find all the info for the JOURNEY KAL there - sign ups, posts, info and more! You can check it out HERE.
