If you have been living under a rock, then you are missing the fact that OUTLANDER is coming to Starz on August 9.
EVERYONE in the knitting community is going gaga - Bijou Basin has their Outlandish Colors and doing the #countdowntoOutlandar, Stitched by JessaLu is creating an Outlander themed bag, and myself, Jasmin/Gigi, Kristin and C.C. are generally sharing every post we find on twitter and Facebook with one another, giggling at Sam Heughan's hotness and hashtagging anything Outlander related with #relevant.

What better way to create even more fun, giggling and general crazy than having an Outlander Knit-Along?
Here is how it is going to work:
It starts now! Knit something inspired by the show. I am knitting Magrathea by Martina Behm in a gorgeous skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk in greens and browns that remind me of the Scottish Highlands.
This is an Instagram-based KAL - post your FO (modeled with Pocket Jamie optional) onto Instagram and please make note of your Ravelry name if it is different from your Instagram name.
Don't forget to hashtag it with #countdowntooutlander and #outlanderkal.
Prizes will be drawn at two points: first at the end of September after the mid-season hiatus, and then at the end of the first season in 2015. Keep on knitting during the whole time!
