Oh how I love a good K.A.L

I love knit-a-longs (well, if it's something I want to KAL with, but sometimes it can encourage me to have a go knitting something that I otherwise wouldn't cast on)

Over on Rav in the Budding Designers Downunder group there is a monthly KAL. Last month it was for a little leafy shrug designed by Katherine

Originally I was simply watching this knit a long, I had a lot of little birthday presents to make and some custom knits to complete and so wasn't sure if participating was something I could do. But with merely days to go until the end of January I decided that I really wanted to knit this for Penny.

I cast on in some lovely soft undyed silver merino that has been neglected in my stash and within a couple of days I had cast off and blocked this wee beauty.

This months KAL is for a little vanilla soaker designed by Kelly. I've yet to cast it on as I've something cute on the needles already, but I've got my yarn picked out and a recipient and embellishment in mind.

  1. Grey is such a wonderful colour for this wee shrug. Penny's hair is looking great atm too :)
