Ready, set, KAL!

Hello Blog!  How are you?

September 1st marked the beginning of my Join-all-the-things month of craziness!
I'm participating in Fat Squirrel's SAL/KAL, Malia's Spin-along, AND I'm doing a Mystery Knit Along!  (honestly, thats not even the end of it, but you'll hear about the rest later... )

Spoiler photo at the end!

This is my first time doing a MKAL, and I'm enjoying it! It's a little scary for me because I tend to be a bit of a control freak, and I'm also used to just ignoring designers' instructions. For instance, normally, I would have ignored the cast-on instructions because I generally resist learning new cast-on methods; However since there was no way for me to look at the pattern and determine how important the cast-on method would be to the finished project, I had to do it just to be safe. I finished the 1st clue in one day (Seems like loads of people did! ). Clue 2 comes out on the 5th and I can't wait :)

As always, check out more WIPs at Tami's!


  1. Looks beautiful! I'm not sure I could do a mystery KAL, I always need to see what I am knitting to make sense of all the stitches :-)

  2. Oh lovely! KALs are so much fun:)

  3. I love mkals! It looks great -- I usually lag behind, so it would be a perfect time to join AND I have the yarn already!
