…specifically: This Blogging Thing. I am rather bad at it.
Brushing aside that fact (see also: the many months since my last post): Incoming Summer. KAL Party. Organization. Let’s do this.
KAL the First: Tegna. Because I adore Caitlin’s designs(/aesthetic) and eventually want to knit every last one of her patterns. This particular project has the added advantage of using up some well-aged stash (MadTosh Light), which I am try-TRYING to be better about.
KAL the Second: Outfit–Along 2017. I missed the mark on the sewing portion of last year’s OAL, but have an invaluable year of sewing practice propping me up this time. The end game is a (knitted) Riverine linen top and a pair of (sewn) Parkside shorts. Elastic-waisted, because 1) I haven’t advanced to zippers quite yet and 2) stretchy waistbands are the stuff of dreams.
KAL the Third: Pomfest/PPQ Anniversary. I’ve already submitted my Mono Greco to his KAL, and ordered yarn for an Anniversary Issue Jamboree. (See above re: TRYING to knit from the stash – and apparently failing?)
Kinda-KAL the Fourth: Fringe Associations’ Summer of Basics, the premise being three staples in three months. The aforementioned green shorts-to-be will qualify, and my closet could use some solid-colored, uber-basic Willow tanks(/layering pieces). I’m also contemplating a Featherweight Cardigan (long-overdue, very needed), time-permitting.
