Last week I mentioned that I wasn’t really making much progress on my socks, and that I was tempted by some exciting yarn…….
…….. well I succumbed, because I am weak when it comes to yarn and pretty projects.
Well, on Sunday I gave in to temptation and cast on, aided and abetted by the current KAL (or knit-a-long, for the uninitiated) on the Louisa Harding Lovers group on Ravelry (come and join us, we’re very friendly!).
I can’t believe how quickly they are knitting up! I was soon done with the cuff:
…… and by the end of the day I’d nearly finished and just had the last two rows and the picot cast off to go! (It’s amazing what you can get done whilst watching the Canadian Grand Prix!)
Ignore the oversized stitch holder. If I’d stopped to find a smaller one I might have missed some of the action!
Before you ask, yes, I was very close to finishing, but when you’re falling asleep mid-row it’s time to stop and go to bed (yes, I know, I lead a very wild, rock and roll existence).
I’ve now cast off the main body of this mitten in Grace Hand Beaded and I’ve just got the thumb to knit and then I’m half way!
Some KAL participants have already finished, but shhh! I had other things to finish first (but not my poor neglected socks).
The Charm KAL runs from the 1st June 2013 until the 30th June and there are prizes! If you fancy joining in, head over to the discussion board on Ravelry for full details.
Have you ever taken part in a KAL? Did you enjoy it?
