I'm still not knitting much these past few weeks. It's as though I burned myself out trying to get through the must do knitting and left no fuel for anything else. Maybe I can set fire to my needles to see if that will spark a flame. Or...Or I could start a knit along. Why not?
One of the things that sparks my creativity is knitting or spinning with a group of like minded people. I usually have an incredible time and I love having the opportunity to draw on the experiences of others, while simultaneously gleaning priceless information I didn't know I couldn't knit without.
Rose and I have been going back and forth with this KAL idea since first seeing the fall Interweave Knits Magazine. There isn't an unattractive pattern in the entire issue. Well OK, the Fair Isle patterns don't entice me, but they're still pretty. It's just not my cup of tea to knit with all of those colors. Maybe it's yours. Hey! Someone has to knit that stunning Bohus sweater.
Consider this your formal invitation to join this KAL being hosted at Sticks on Fire, a virtual knitting circle. This is a BYOP (Bring Your Own Pattern) group, so grab your fall issue of IK Magazine, select your yarn and needles and be ready to cast on by September 21st. It's that simple. All skill levels welcome.
