Today's the Big Day!

Time for the summer KALs to start.

I got up early to get a few chores done before it got too hot, and so I could start my new projects.

I cast on for my first Summer of Socks pattern which was a freebie for the club from Wendy Johnson. I'm using Chameleon Colorworks Bambino.

SOS 2008

And a Swallowtail Shawl with some Handmaiden Sea Silk. This is a perfect yarn to knit with during a heat wave!

Unfortunately, I also woke up with a bad cold/allergies so I took some Benedryl... and went back to sleep.

Oh, and did mention that I also signed up for The Loopy Ewe's Dream in Color Baby KAL?

DIC Smooshy

The colorway is In Veritas Vino. More garnet than purple as it may look. I haven't quite decided what it's going to be yet. I'm open to any scarf ideas.

You don't think I've gotten carried away do you?

Hope the summer KALs bring out the socks in you. You'll need them for your new shoes.

looks like you're just going to KAL the summer huh?

I'm also currently knitting socks (test knitting) from the same yarn. I luv it. How do you like it?

I'm also wondering what to do with my DIC Baby yarn. Go ahead and pick out a pattern for us. I have no ideas ;-)
