Setting the scene: me, standing in front of my wall unit that houses my stash, drawers open, glass doors flung wide, just staring. (for a long, long time)...
oldest: Uh, mom. Whatcha doing?
oldest: 'bout what?
me: What to knit.
oldest: For who?
me: Well, that's part of the thinking, see.
oldest: And the wall's gonna tell you?
me: No, silly. The walls can't talk. I'm listening to the yarn.
Because yessiree...it's here! The second Summer Sweater Knitalong hosted by the lovely Shannon, aka, Luvinthemommyhood.
I have such affection for this KAL. It's hard to believe it was only a year ago that I discovered the group on Ravelry and set about knitting my Narragansett. Since then, I've met and connected with so many wonderful knitters--I truly love my virtual knitting friends and enjoy being a moderator for the group.
I had always read Shannon's blog but it wasn't until I fell for knitting and she began her KALs that we "met"--and I feel so lucky to be a part of the community. If you're a knitter, hope you're joining the fun, too. Sign ups and information can be found in this post and in the Ravelry group here. See you there!
p.s. I have three (three!) projects planned for the KAL. I'm starting with a linen shrug that should be a great knit to take to the beach next week, followed by a lovely pullover, and finally, I hope to at least start a long overdue sweater for Charlie. I'll post pattern detes and yarn pictures asap.
