Last week I cast on for the beginning of the Winter's Rhythm KAL (Knit Along) with KellyJ of Your Local Yarn Shop and Jill June of Studio June. For the next month you are going to see a lot of posts from me regarding this KAL because I am determined to finish the caplet with the rest of the group during the month of the designated KAL. I've yet to finish a project where a time line was set. Will it happen this time? Should I stress now? Oh, you know I will...but I also intend to have fun and enjoy every inch of knitting on the fabulous yarn that Studio June has created while knitting KellyJ's sassy pattern. One reason I am really enjoying this KAL is because KellyJ has opened up her yarn shop for late hours every Friday night so the members of the KAL can gather and knit together. Even though I consider myself a frustrated knitter, I do enjoy it. I love that it's portable and that you can be social with it. I have already met some new people while visiting the yarn shop and I look forward to ending my work week at one of my favorite places here in town surrounded by beautiful yarns and wonderful people.
Our first week's homework (yes, I said homework) was to complete the first chart in the pattern. Guess what I did. I completed the chart. Hooray! This is a first for me. Will I keep up the momentum?
Well...stay tuned for next week to see. Oh, I also dyed up tons of fiber for a SAL (Spin Along) I will be hosting...more details to follow this week. I also have managed to squeeze in some spinning but by the time I get home at night the lighting is bad so hopefully the bad weather we are supposed to get this weekend doesn't come and I can get photos. I'm still procrastinating about the sewing of the bags made from weaving. Argh! Yes, for those of you who wonder how I do it all...really, sewing may be my kryptonite. tehehehe This month's focus really will be the knitting though. I am finding that I can't stretch myself as thin as I used to especially if I want to enjoy what I'm doing.
