Happy Wednesday everyone!
Where did this Wednesday come from? The Holiday Monday and the start of school has got my head spinning! It"as been
But not just school and activities start this month, it"s also the beginning of the Fall knitting season! Many of the blogs and podcast I follow have knit-alongs starting this month. I have been planning and plotting about how to participate in a many of them as I can. I've even considered starting a spreadsheet. How's that for craft nerd dedication in all its glory?
First up, The Fat Squirrel Speaks (Do you watch her podcast? You should!) is having an "Un Squirrel it Away" KAL. The point is to finally knit up a yarn or a pattern you've been saving for "special". At the same time, the Must Stash Podcast girls are having a "Rhinebeck or Bust" KAL where you knit something you think would be worthy of taking to the Rhinebeck fibre festival. I of course am a "Bust" since I'm not going. I will get there one day!
I am planning to knit the yarn from the July instalment of the Tanis Fiber Arts Year in Colour Club. It is her Red Label merino, silk, cashmere base in the gorgeous Papaya colourway.
I am going to use it to knit the Papaya Shawlette that was designed for the yarn. So pretty!
This project will also qualify for this month's AlphaKAL for the letter "P" at my LYS.
Triple Dipping. Love it!
I can't wait to cast on... just as soon as I finish the neckband on Monkey's sweater. I'm so close!
I'm sure there is plenty more Fall focused shenanigans happening over at Tami's Amis.
My big boy in Kindergarten. I can hardly believe it.
