hi ~ just a couple of days until the KAL starts, but i wanted to write a quick introduction and a happy welcome to all of you! so far, we're 35 41 participants and i can't wait to see the amazing knits we're going to make over the next few months. some people are starting after the holidays, some are making things *for* the holidays, but either way, it's going to be exciting.

i'm andrea and am pleased as punch to be one of your hostesses. i did my first colorwork last year during mj's great norwegian-knit-along - the flenten hat from bea ellis knits. i loved seeing the pattern appear and was pretty much immediately hooked to fair isle. soon after, i started the fair isle bag by beth brown-reinsel,bought as a kit from nordic fiber arts. i barely squeaked it in at the end of the kal, but i love love my bag. sure, it still needs a nice cloth liner, but that's just icing really. ;) i highly recommend both projects ~ gotta love the kits, and the end projects are beautiful. next up? too many ideas still bopping around in my head, but for now, i just started the turkish cape from a recent vogue knitting, am eyeing some poetry in stitches sweater kits, and am always up for another bea ellis hat. yup, ambitious, and probably unrealistic. ;)

so! looking forward to getting to know you all ~ again, welcome and hooray for the colorwork challenge!

p.s. don't forget to check out the flickr group.
