KAL Updates II

So, in KAL news, I'm overbooking myself again. (I'm not as bad about this as some people I know, go look at Kat's schedule this quarter if you want to know what real overbooking is all about!)

Knitting finished, need to weave in the ends and sew the bottom ends together. I used Cascade Fixation in a varegated blue. Signing up for this one is a little unfair. The knitting's was finished before the KAL started.

Knitting Olympics:
I still don't know what I'm going to knit for this. I could do the knitting for the NWRSA fiber exchange, or the Sockapaloooza knitting, or, for something completely different, I could make my first Baby Suprise Sweater a la Elizabeth Zimmerman. Probably the most challenging option, I could do the finishing on the oldest unfinished object in my stash. But that deserves a post of its own.

Still stalled, need to cast on second sock. It is not looking good for finishing the pair by the deadline.

Handknit Holidays:
Thinking about what to knit from this book next. I have a set of yarn for the floral fair-isle bag, but there are so many neat projects in that book that I'm not sure which to do.

Warm Hands:
Remember the green wristwarmer from December's KAL Update? It has resumed life as a ball of yarn. I decided the hand section was just too big and ripped it out. However, I have finished one wristwarmer just like Peacock's and the other one is on the needles.

Matches have been made!!! I know who my sock partner is. I'm plotting her socks at this very moment, though I currently have no actual decisions made about color, style, yarn or anything.

Postcard Swap:
The postcard swap is in full swing. My cards went out a week ago just before Chinese New Year. Each of them featured 3 different hand-dyed fabrics and a picture of my puppy. I've been enjoying receiving postcards too, look forward to seeing them in their very own post.

I got it finished and sent shortly after the hosts asked for the final round-up. It's 3 months overdue, but I've been in contact with MellowTrouble since before the deadline passed in November. She's been very understanding and is excited to see it when it arrives.

Hi Bethiee!

I received your beautiful postcard and wanted to say thank you! The colours are gorgeous. I especially love the purple and blue fabric. And that's so awesome that it includes a picture of your very own dog!

And thank you so much for the nice things you said about my blog. That really made my day :)

I hope you're doing great and receiving some wonderful postcards too! Thanks again and Happy Year of the Dog!
