I hope not. I have a few more inches of Christmas Knitting to complete, but the end is in sight and it will be done later today.
That is a good thing because I am ready to do some deadline free knitting.
Well, sort of…
There are some KAL’s coming in January and February that could be fun:
Last year I did 12 Days of Casting on with the now closed Natural Stitches, but I am not aware of any group doing this during the 12 Days of Christmas (there is a group that started before Christmas which was bad planning IMO) But, if you are interested in 12 Days of Casting on – rules are simple, cast on one new project every day from Boxing Day to Epiphany. End result – 12 items for your knitter’s gift basket… Or perhaps 12 items to jump-start your 2017 FO list… The goal is not in the completion, but rather the casting on. Last year, I cast on multiple mitts and a cowl or two and had things to gift most of the year. If you need some ideas – Gale’s Trip Mitts are super fun and a fast knit!
Now on to the KAL’s:
Kathleen Dames is leading a KAL for An Aran For Frederick. If you want to knit a sweater, or you want to knit cables – this is for you!
If your sock drawer is lacking, here are two quick MKAL options for a couple of pairs of socks in the first quarter!!
2 – MKAL – On January 1st Kirsten Kapur will announce her winter MKAL Sock knit along. Knitting will begin February 1st – you can sign up for her newsletter here.
Need to ramp up your shawl wardrobe? Winter’s Whisper might be what you are looking for and this is free until the MKAL begins on February 1st.
Are you looking for a challenge? Want to learn something new? You can join Louise Tilbrook in her January Brioche Challenge!
And, last – although this is not an official KAL – I would like to invite you to join Juliann and me as we knit Thea Coleman’s Rob Roy together in a mini-KAL. Who does not need another hat? And, if you don’t – you could always add it to your gift knitting for next year!
And, finally – I would like to wish all of you a most blessed holiday weekend. See you back here on Monday!
P.S. A huge thanks to my friend Karen for her assistance with some of this linky goodness!
