I joined 2 KAL's this week, the Fingerless Mitts For Fall and the Fall Cable KAL 2007. I hope to get my sweater done this year. Well, I hoped to get it done 6 months ago, but knitting all those socks gets in the way of finishing other things. So, I decided a little dual purpose knitting was in order. Thursday is allergy shot day for the CW, so I took along a cake of Louet Gems Sport wt and cast on for these mitts. They went to the frog pond no less than 3 times, but I am happy with them now. I will write down the directions as I go for the second one. I think they fit DD1 perfectly.
And these new socks will count for the Fall Cable KAL too. They are little further along now. This is the Spritely Goods in the Manzanita in Bloom II. I love the colors in this yarn, and it is so soft. I am starting the toe decreases on the Lamurple sock, and I wound the Wollmeise the other day. I cast on with it and started to knit, but the design was getting lost in the dark shades of the yarn. It looked beautiful in the light shades though. I will let it rest for a while and then it will be put back into the queue. As will the Spring Morning colorway, it too went to the frog pond, as expected.
Well, the CW is patiently waiting to get on my computer. The kids have there own, but mine is faster and he likes to play his games on it. I hope everyone has a great weekend, filled with lots of family fun, or knitting, or both!
