A New WIP

After seeing my list of March goals which I posted on Monday, it may seem strange that I have a new WIP - perhaps even insane! Luckily, it's a quick project which I can wok on outside of the house, which comes in handy since the designs-in-progress are very much stay-at-home projects at this point.

Clearly, I can justify just about anything!

I heard about the Spring KAL happening in the Blue Sky Alpacas Ravelry group which was announced last week, and you know how I can't resist a KAL...especially when there is a totally awesome prize up for grabs. Over the weekend, I wound off my yarn (3 skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas sport in the color used for the pattern, Celery) and I cast on Sunday night...after I'd safely reached my design knitting goals for the day, of course!

The Celery Slouch KAL comes along at just the perfect time for me, as my knitting group is collecting hats for women who are currently battling cancer. I have a modest pile of hats ready to donate, and this one will be a nice addition to round out the mix.

If you live in Chicago and would also like to donate some hats to help Cancer patients, a local podcaster pal of mine recently kicked off a KAL which you can find out about more here.

  1. Your pile of hats to donate makes me very happy. <3 I knit a fair number for my mom when she was going through chemo and it's so nice to see others doing the same for strangers.
