Yeah, so I'm not listening to that part of me today.
Because Kathy and I spent fun time yesterday pairing up colorways of Claudia Handpaints Fingering and Malabrigo Finito...
This will be our third KAL project from the ever-popular Coastal Knits book. We knitted the Rustling Leaves Beret last fall and the Panoramic Stole earlier this year - all of those projects turned out so well we wanted to knit another one. This shawlette seems like a perfect accessory for summer. It takes only 375 yards of fingering weight yarn, so you know it will be lightweight. And the color options...well, that makes it perfect for a KAL!
The pattern suggests a main and contrast color (250 and 125 yards, respectively), but you could also choose a single skein of Madelinetosh or Malabrigo Sock and knit it in one color. Kathy and I, we're definitely going the two-color route!
...now the only challenge is...which two colors to pick!
We'll be casting on next Friday (April 27, 2012) afternoon. Please do make plans to join us - in person is always fun, but virtually is ok, too. You can chime in on our Facebook page or Ravelry forum.
