cast on all the things

I’m participating in the My Sister’s Knitter WIP KAL – kicking off this Monday, September 1st.  We’re all feverishly casting on projects this weekend so we have more WIPs to work on.

I realize this may be contrary to the spirit of a WIP KAL, but it’s TONS OF FUN!

I’ve been looking through my rav faves and new designs and have a few that I’m considering.


garments wip kalRaspberry Tart just came out this week and omg the love.  Top down, wider neckline, fun cables.

Baby Cables and Big Ones Too – now that I’m a smaller size I think this one will be a flattering fit and I love the juxtaposition of the cables against the garter stitch.


shawl wip kal

Auri also just came out this week too.  Love the three related colors making a lovely gradient.

And So Are You has been on my to-knit list for a long time.   Andi knew that and proposed a little KAL for the two of us.  Of course, I have no yarn for this one.  Cue the violins.

Hitchhiker in the Tuxedo yarn I got a few weeks ago.  I think the yarn needs garter and a black and white long scarf will see a lot of use this winter.


cowl wip kalJet Set Cowl looks like a lot of fun to knit and a highly wearable piece too.

Brush Creek Cowl but of course I want it in a slow color change yarn like Noro Sock (which I don’t have).

Starshower is so pretty for a solid or semi-solid sock yarn.  And I have a few to choose from.

Riverbank looks great as a cowl or a capelet.  Love the versatility.


mittens wip kalClepsydra uses twisted stitches to make a pretty zigzag pattern

Grove uses twisted stitches but makes a leafy pattern instead

And then Merion has tiny Maypole cables on the face of the mittens.

That’s Twelve – Count ’em Twelve – projects

Well a few of them are possible cast ons. I don’t expect to cast on all twelve but I do think I’ll probably cast on 4 to 6 of them though.

Good times.

I’ll catch you on the purl side.
