Linette on August 12th, 2011
So, this month I’ve challenged myself to my first ever knit-along. This means that a whole bunch of knitters all sign up for a group knitting extravaganza on Ravelry – what Slate calls the social network for knitters. Right now there are 2294 people signed up for this adventure, all of us devoting the month of August to knitting the same pattern and each week we get a new clue.
Unfortunately, since Lauren isn’t obsessed with knitting like I am, I had to recruit my one and only knitting friend to do it with me, and we have officially embarked on Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL 2011: Earth & Sky. (Sounds cool, right?) I’m sure once it’s done it will be amazing, because Stephen West designs really cool things. But right now my shawl looks like this:
I think the rest of August is going to involve a lot more knitting…
