It’s KFYAL time! (Try saying that as a single word…Kfyaaal.) I don’t have a lot of progress to report myself, as I have a story of woe for you, but the thread on Ravelry is going crazy and everyone is getting on really well. First, the woe – then the joy of people doing amazing things.
Corrie’s KFYAL – delayed
In my previous post about the Knit for Yourself Along, I had said I might knit Naloa by Renee Callaghan. I have the yarn, I have the pattern, I have the needles; but I decided this was a very large project for one month, so I decided not to go for it this time. Instead, I frogged about an inch of cuff of Monkey by Cookie A, then started again. I wanted to make sure my tension was still the same as I cast that on ages ago.
Then, my amazing grandmother came to stay and I spent the day after New Year desperately tidying. My stash trunk was opened – no mean feat as it involves moving a printer, my sewing box, my spinning basket, my knitting basket and the N64 – and miscellaneous projects shoved back in. Gran left and now, two days later, I still couldn’t find the project.
I was pretty certain I wouldn’t have stuck it in the stash trunk, but I had looked everywhere and it was nowhere to be seen, so there was only one thing for it. Tonks had a great time as I dived head-first into the trunk. I discovered loads of yarn that I had forgotten I own, and got very excited about all the projects I want to make (I actually removed about four projects worth of yarn from the stash, not the point in the exercise at all). However, no Monkey.
I put everything back, preparing to tell the Resolutions Monthly people that I could not find the project and I would have to do another one. Just as I placed the printer back, I picked up a project bag that was on the floor and full of my quilting sewing. Or so I thought – there were the blooming socks!
What’s that saying? They’re always in the last place you think to look? Darn it! So, no progress on my side to report, but plenty from everyone else.
The Resolutions Monthly KFYAL Progress
I will only post photos as I have none of my own – for more of the news, the KAL starts here.
SugarAngel is knitting herself a pair of socks – you can find out more about them here.
There are a few more going – I’ll check back next week!
