knitting along

I’m going to do it. And it starts today. I’ve got some yarn dyed and I just downloaded the pattern. My goal is to have it done when the KAL: Tops, Tanks & Tees Knit Along ends, so I can wear it at our Clendenin Family Reunion in June, in Ohio. I think it will be perfect (hope hope hope).

I’m going to knit the Bonny, a lovely sleeveless lace shell with a gorgeous detail in the bodice. It’s lightweight, it’s knit in the round and should (hope hope hope) take one skein of lace that I dyed last year.

Since it’s bottom up, I will do a provisional cast-on. That way I can add a bottom detail if I need it a little longer for my tall torso. And if I run out of my 880 yards, I have lots of lace leftover from other projects to add at the bottom. I think a little colour blocking would be interesting.

Time to start winding that yarn and pour more coffee!
