One Planet Knitters Knitalong
So the scorecard is...I'm finishing up 2 projects for a magazine. The instructions for the 3rd project I have in Yahaira's Pure Knits book are turned in and my wonderful sample knitter is finishing up the knitting for it.
Meanwhile, I'm staring at some lovely Radiance from One Planet Yarn and Fiber. It'll become the Sunshine Tank, Melissa's really pretty camisole pattern. I'm so excited. This will be the first thing I've made for myself (other than the stray glove or three) in a long time. One of the biggest ironies about my obsession with knitting is that I really hate wearing sweaters. But this camisole is exactly the type of knitted garment I would wear - made out of a fine weight yarn, not too fussy, with great little details. The Radiance is really gorgeous too - soft, with a slight sheen, and in great saturated colors. I'm usually not a purple person, but I fell in love with this colorway (Bloom):
One Planet has set up a great knitalong space where people can post and share projects carried by the shop. Many of their designers will also frequent the KAL as it gets underway, so it's a great place to get help and feedback too.
