Yarn~ Spinning Fates Twisted Sisters in the color Lady Meux Tea~ Taylors of Harrogate Sweet Rhubarb.
Happy Sunday! whoo-hoo, we made it to the weekend. :) The week flew and now thankfully the weekend feels like it is moving nice and slow. I am totally savoring it. Some knitting has happened on my fraternal twins socks, as well as my sample knits.
A new KAL (knit-along) is starting in the My Sister's Knitter group today. I really enjoy knitting along with people as for me it provides me with a feeling like I am knitting with a local knitting group. I am constantly in awe for how kind, supportive and inspiring the group members are. While preparing for this next KAL it got me thinking, why do you knit along or why don't you?
Yarns~ Dream in Color Baby.
For me, KALs provide me with a knitting community that I don't have here in Arizona. The original reason I started the group in 2013 was because I wanted a way to expand my blog in a way that allowed me to connect on another level through knitting. Now, I say knitting but our KALs also include crochet, weaving and sometimes spinning.
Pattern~ Let it Shine Yarn~ Neighborhood Fiber Co. in the color Victorian Village.
When creating the KAL is the group, I try to make them as open to all as possible so that everyone feels the project they create will fit into the theme. Of course this is not always possible, but I like to think that for the most part the themes are something everyone can join in on.
Your turn...do you join KALs? If so, what do you like about them and what don't you? If you don't KAL, why?
Enjoy a lovely video that has me green with envy ( knitting and camping=my heaven), and have the best day today!
