Cast on

Finally got to cast on for my cardigan for the KAL this summer. And i must say,the yarn was nice in the skein, beautiful once balled up.... And absolutely georgeous knit up!!!!

Today at the beach I got a great shot of the colors.....why do I take photos inside at all?  outside just showcases the yarn so much better!!!!!

Gnarled Oak Summer Sweater KAL

I've got big big plans brewing for summer knitting.  Yesterday someone posted on Ravelry asking what we were going to be working on during the summer.  My answer was "Ravellenic's" projects.  Over on Ravelry we are doing projects during the of today though, things have changed.  I was reminded of a shawl KAL I am participating in (more to come on that) and then I stumbled up this sweater KAL though a friend of mines blog Celtic Cast On.

So now I have a lot going on.  

Wanna see what I choose to work on.....

I'll be using a yummy yarn by Madeline Tosh....not sure if I will have enough yarn in my stash....but my plan is to make the sleeves last....fingers crossed!!!!!
