New Projects…and a New KAL…

This week I have no FOs  but I have started 2 projects… well, really one project.  The other one I had done like 5 rows on & left it to work on Christmas gifts so, yes, we will say 2 projects.  LOL

First, I’ve been seeing several posts about a sock KAL and I’ve been intrigued.  I just LOVE knitting socks!!  So thanks to All Night Knits & Purls just wanna have fun I have joined the Socks with Sarah sock KAL!!!  YAY!!!  It’s so exciting especially because I love socks & this gives me a reason to knit socks all year long!  LOL!  I’ve only done one other KAL and I did it because I truly loved the pattern.  But I usually am very intimidated by KALs because I feel pressure to finish by a certain date & what if I don’t…  LOL  (I know nothing happens if I don’t but still…..)  This KAL is very laid back & easy!  You just have to knit socks.  It can be a few rows every day or a whole day spent knitting socks.  And you choose your own patterns.  So I got inspired & joined!!

My first pair of socks for 2014 & this KAL I’m working on the November Socks pattern by Brigette Zeuner.  I love the pattern, it’s different & easy to do.  I am using Patons Kroy Socks Jacquards in Country Jacquard.  I’m calling them my Sand Dune Socks.  LOL  I love the colors in this yarn!

I also started working on a sweater!!!  I have not worked on a sweater in years!!  So, I’m excited & a little scared.  A sweater is a BIG project.  It will probably take me forever to finish, but at least I started it!  A few years ago for Christmas either my mom or my husband bought me a kit from Mary Maxim for a Ragg Jacket.  It has been sitting in my yarn closet since then.  Last week I decided I was going to start it!  And so I did.  This is what I’ve done so far.  The pattern is super easy.  At least so far it is.  I’m only on the back, no increasing or decreasing yet.

And this week I also started back at work which means that my knitting time has diminished dramatically  😦  boooo!!!   But I’m very excited with my 2 new projects & I have a 3rd project that I’ve been thinking of starting….Let’s see what happens with that.

  1. Can I also say YAY! Welcome to the KAL! It’s going to be so much fun – I feel so lucky that such amazing knitters are joining me! Did you sign up in the Ravelry thread? I just have to ask to be sure. 😉
