It's that time of year again - time for the Holla Knits Knit Along! I joined this last year and managed to knit my Eastwood Cardigan within the 3 months of the KAL (which was amazing for me - I'm such a slow knitter).
This year, I plan to knit Cafe au Lait, a pattern I've been in love with since Holla Knits showed a sneak peak of the cable and lace months before it's spring 2014 release. Hell, I even went online and bought the yarn the day the pattern was released. And then the damn yarn has been sitting in my sewing room for months, so it's about time to get this done.
This pattern is a little hard to switch to though. I've been working on another pattern with a ton of cables, and the added lace is throwing me off. Glad I did the swatch though, not only because it gave me an idea of the sizing and gauge, but I also got a feel for the pattern before it needs to count. I made a couple of mistakes in the swatch, but it's a swatch so I let it be. Think I now have a feel for the pattern.
Hodgepodge mitts out of the colours above, and I'm itching to make that black version of Deco Daisies I mentioned a while back. Ambitious plans for a slow knitter like me, but what the heck, it's worth a try.
Any knitters out there considering joining along? Holla Knits has some really innovative and unique patterns available, and I know from experience that this KAL is a ton of fun! Oh, and did I mention the prizes?
