Congrats to Karen. Lucky girl! I am stoically resisting new cast ons, trying to finish a light summer cardy in the deep Melbourne midwinter! Sometimes knitting makes no sense.


Pink Yak yarn I love it!!!


My guys have been thrilled that it's World Cup time; at one time my husband was a goal keeper.
I am getting ready to take a little trip with my girls, and yes, I have my knitting packed.


Congratulations Karen! Great colorway too!
And yes all three going on here this weekend! I was so excited about last nights game that I couldn't knit!!!!
Go Italy!

I agree the Ravelry group is amazing!! I feel like I have gained another family! Thank you for bringing us together!
Have a great week!


The cream and the green will be wonderful together. Of course you have lots of knitters wanting to KAL with you. Who wouldn't want to? Yakkity yak yarn? Oh goodness that must make you want to molest it occasionally. I have yak yarn on my wish list.


I have chronic cast-on-itis at the moment.
And then I'm getting bored of the knit, or not liking the effect and wanting to frog it after a few hours.

Maybe I'm restless :P

I just got some yak into my stash this week. I'm looking forward to knitting with it and seeing how it knits up.


Oh my! It started! This means time to drag out all my fun sock yarns and crochet like a knitter knits! Someday I shall learn to knit like you and make awesome shawls and such loveliness. Hugs, Sheri


Congrats to Karen! :)
I never tried yak but I have knit a camel/merino blend: it was like knitting butter. Soooo soft and warm that I wanted to bury my face in it!


Both of those shawls are going to be so lovely! :)
And you are so right about the KAL group - I feel so welcomed and look forward to KAL-ing over the next 2 months! :)

I love how enthusiastic everyone is with this KAL. I started some socks, because the yarn is amazing and fun and calls out to be socks. But I have at least 4 other projects in mind for this KAL. :)

Congratulations, Karen! I have some yarn I ordered from Ashley, and it's lovely - I can't wait to figure out what it wants to be.


thank you!! I am thrilled to be receiving such a lovely skein :)


I just realized that I have the perfect green yarn for a dew drops shawl.. despite having way too many WIP's already, I may need to add another :P I have just fallen so hard for that lovely shawl!


It looks like you are going to be in garter stitch meditation... or hell, for a bit. I actually don't mind stockinette. I just thought it was funny that my friend called it stockinette hell.

Wooly Wonka ... was there ever a better name for yarn! And it looks gorgeous!!

Hope you're enjoying a lovely midsummer weekend Andi :)
