One day away from the official start of MJ, Andrea, and Mary-Heather's Colorwork KAL! Woo-hoo! To kick off the KAL, the girls have posed a couple of questions to get us into the colorwork spirit, so here they are, along with my answers:
What are your projects for this knitalong?
I will be attempting a Bea Ellis "Traditional" hat, similar to the one you see to the left. Though I would really adore a beautiful Fair Isle sweater, and hope to knit one someday, I have to keep it real for now. Not only do I have numerous projects at the WIP stage, but the holidays are approaching, and for perhaps the biggest reason of them all (please see below), I thought it only appropriate that I start off small. Hence, hat. Anyway, how cute is this??
Is this your first colorwork project? If it isn't, what was your first, and has it survived the test of time?
Indeed, this will be my very first attempt at colorwork! I'm sooo excited! I've been wanting to try colorwork for a while, but of course other projects pop up, or spinning enters the picture, you know, other distractions, so the colorwork project kept being put off. Which is why I was so excited to hear that MJ, MH, and Andrea were planning this KAL. Hooray! I look forward to seeing everyone else's projects, which I know I will garner a great deal of inspiration from. This the perfect opportunity to get me started. Thanks for organizing this fun fest, ladies! I can't wait!!
