I'm feeling better (and yes I was really sick, not just playing hooky so I could knit... gee...) but seems I've caught the KAL fever.
The first symptom was my joining of Delusional Knitter's Bead-a-long. It starts this weekend and I have my pattern:
(The Heart-to-Heart scarf) and yarn:
(Wandering Cat Slinky Cat in Steel Magnolias) chosen. Beads were a little harder. I have about six vials coming in the mail because I couldn't decided on a colour (pink or purple) or a shade. I guess I'll decide when they get here.
Then it's a matter of bugging Mom for a beading tutorial and off I go!
The second symptom came in the form of a Ravelry message. A reminder from the ever-so-talented Anna Dalvi that I'd joined her Mystic Midsummer Wreath Mystery Shawl KAL - and the swatch chart was ready!
I've never done a mystery KAL before, but Anna's patterns are so pretty. As you know, as a rule, I also don't swatch.
But I did this time...
because I just couldn't wait to see what I was in for.
So far - so good! I'm using some Fluffy Cat (in Teddy Bear) that I had tucked away in the stash. The first clue comes on June 15th and I can't wait!
And the best part of these KALs??? They also qualify for the Wandering Cat Summer Stitch-a-Long!!!!
