My mommy always told me to be a leader – to step up and do what needs to be done.
But I love joining in on all these KALs and such.
I’ve started knitting me some jaywalkers (finally, I know, I’m behind on this one). It’s the yarn I dyed myself in Kool-aid, and then overdyed with Gaywool dyes. If you don’t already, know and you havne’t yet knitted one yet, the pattern is here and the oh-so-great designer is Grumperina.
Oh, and I’ve joined into the great Sock Wars (perhaps you’ve noticed the button on my sidebar). It’ll be interesting competing while I’m in classes and working but I thought it would be fun and worth a try. Enter before the 8th if you’re brave enough.
And also, I was really sad that I missed the sign ups for SP 8. As a lonely college student, getting packages in the mail is really like one of the BEST things ever. But, come high water, I’m entering SP 9. You can see the SP 9 blog here (the blog design is creative and different, but could it BE more girly?). Plus, because of the swaps I did on the Knittyboard and my absolute spoiling of Amanda, I love sending packages in the mail and brightening other people’s day.
And, I just joined the Swallow Tail Shawl KAL. How am I ever going to finish my Christmas knitting. This is setting me up for disaster, I know.
I’ve already knit 6 repeats of the 2nd chart so I”m moving right along at a pretty good pace. The only problem is that I’m not using lifelines and so I had to tink four rows earlier this week. I’m cocky what can I say?
Yay! Fun times ahead! Are you joining anything?
