Since we all seem to be obsessed with knitting the very same things, I'm announcing our very first official knit-a-long! The first project will be kernel from the current issue of Knitty, a beautiful and versatile lace scarf pattern (I think I'll be widening mine to make it more of a shawl, I love it so much!).

Some yarns I am suggesting for this pattern: of course, it would be gorgeous in a skein (or two!) of Handmaiden Sea Silk or any of the Schaefer sock yarns (Ann, Heather, or Nichole). A more affordable and also beautiful option would be Cascade's Heritage sock yarn (a steal at only $12/skein!). I'd also love to see it with the long, blending color blocks in the Zauberball.
If you're interested in participating, let me know if there's a good time for the KAL to meet (I'm thinking Sundays from 4-6 but am open to suggestion). Of course, KAL projects are welcome at our Tuesday knitnight, too!
