A new Project

Good Morning everyone. Well, today I'm going to bring something of a little present to you guys. No, it's not a free pattern this time, it's an opportunity to do a project unlike any other. A Knit A-Long (KAL) for knitted shawls.

You've been to KALs before, but this time, you are going to spin your own yarn. I had mentioned in an earlier post that I wanted to spin yarn and knit a shawl of my own. Well, Kirsten had made a comment that she also wanted to spin her own yarn and knit it into a shawl. So, I pitched her the idea of starting a KAL for it.

Needless to say, she really liked the idea and for the past week her and I have been putting our noses to the proverbial grindstone and getting our blog up. We're hoping to launch within the next week or so, so stick around!

Oh, and here's a sneak peak of the roving I'm going to use. It's Merino silk in Lichen Green from Blue Goose Glen.

I would love to learn how to spin, unfortunately I lack the money or time to spin at the moment. =(

Oooooh, that fiber is beautiful! I can't wait to see how it spins up!

YOU are the culprit! Even though I just got my SpunkyClub fiber in the mail today, I just HAD TO rush over to Blue Goose Glen and nab a few ounces of that Lichen. You enabler you. ;)
