So way back on December 1st (hey, it feels like a long time ago) Julie (knittedblissJC) announced a knitalong (henceforth known as a KAL) starting on January 1st using Tanis Fiber Arts yarns. I have stashed away a year’s worth of the Year in Colour club and a skein of Green Label in Shadow I picked up at Stix and Stones in North Bay and the leftovers from the mittens I made my Dad for Christmas. I also have some Red Label that Carla got me for my birthday, but I am saving that till after the KAL so I can savor the experience.
So, starting yesterday morning I will be working on nothing but projects in TFA yarns till the Feb 1 cast off deadline. They are as follows …
- Tabata Ear Band by Anne Hanson of Knitspot in the leftover Green Label Olive for my Dad
- Buttons Cowl by Tanis Lavalle of Tanis Fiber Arts in the Green Label Shadow
- Itasca Shawl by Tanis Gray for the Year in Colour Club in Blue Label Frost (the club yarn)
- Aquarium Socks by Patti Waters for the Year in Colour Club in Blue Label Aquarium (the club yarn)
I have no idea if I will get this all done, but the two green label projects are quickies and all of them will fit in my purse so there is hope!
