My will was weak, I started some new knitting projects and not just one, but three new projects. On the plus side I did just finish my Downeast sweater.
Yes! I finished it! It hasn’t been washed or photographed, that will all come this weekend, but I did finish it. I also did get started on working on the follow your arrow shawl again. Granted it is back on the back burner, but I plan to make myself work on it a little bit each day. That hasn’t happened since this past weekend, but I’m trying and that is what matters right?
Now on to the new projects and I will go ahead and apologize in advance for the poor quality of pictures, they are from my phone (that’s how most of my WIP’s are photographed). First up is the Nachfalter:
I started this yesterday and I have been zooming through the baby cables, I am over halfway finished with that section. I started this for the Top Tanks and Tees KAL (TTTKAL), I am also double dipping this with the stockinette zombies summer tops KAL. If you want to join the TTTKAL you can sign up here and if you want to join the stockinette zombies go here (the stockinette zombies is run through their ravelry group so you will need to join their group to participate). TTTKAL runs until the end of May, but the stockinette zombies runs until the end of June.
Now onto Deviate:
I cast on this one as a part of the Northbound Knits and Cocktail SKAL. My trillian is also a part of this SKAL (spin and knit along). This is a special SKAL because it is exclusive to those who bought the yarn or fiber dyed up by Lisa Mutch aka Northbound Knitting. The colorways were inspired by cocktails. This one end June 1st.
Now onto my Earlybird socks:
This is a part of the Socks with Sarah KAL and is also a part of Socks with Sarah May challenge. To join in to this one you need to join Sarah’s ravelry group and then you can join the KAL. This project has been a lot of fun so far. I also just want to say that the yarn was dyed up by my friend Alicia who sometimes reads the blog (this was one of her experiments, she just dyes yarn for fun).
Later this week I will post about how my spinning is going, I know some of you were interested.
