KAL time

Greetings. I am a newby to the KAL as well, and am very pleased to be here. I love Yarn and think this a great way to collectively appreciate all the hard work past and future Yarn folk have done/will do to keep us craft nuts happy and inspired.

I am going to make the South Cape issue seven. I am currently spinning the yarn, a merino x from Shiloh easy spin. It's a dark linen colour that will most likely be dyed. I would love opinions on the matter once I get some photos up.

This is an exercise in hope and madness as I have a one year old boy plus a serious craft addiction in which the South Cape will have to battle for supremacy if I am to get it done. A fantastic chance to test out if I have a single ounce of discipline.

I look very much forward to finishing the South Cape and heading down to Tassie, one of my favourite places on earth, to wear it.

Wow, spinning the yarn first, then knitting it - way to go Denyse! It's a gorgeous pattern you've chosen.

Denyse, I can't wait to see your finished project. I've been procrastinating on officially joining the KAL as my current project is spinning up the yarn for the South Cape also.

Come on then, a KAL within a KAL! I would knit one but I've already done it. : ) I was the test knitter for the one in the magazine. Now I just need some cold weather for wearing it.
