Jane and I are so excited to see what projects you'll be casting on from our newest book - Within: Knitting Patterns to Warm the Soul that we thought it would be fun to run a knit along! It will be a casual, ongoing knit along where you can simply tag your projects with #withinknits on social media and Ravelry! 

If you're on Ravelry you can pop into our brand new MARIAN RAE PUBLICATIONS Ravelry Group and share your Within projects in the Within Knit Along thread! Feel free to chat, ask questions and more! We'll be featuring some of your finished projects and there may even be some prizes ;)

here's no end date, we're keeping it casual - we just want you guys to have fun and enjoy making the knits from the book! We love to see what you are all making! 

Thank you for your ongoing support and we hope you're enjoying knitting from Within!

We hope you'll join us!
