oops! i missed the roll call! my first project is one i'm just finishing up - an icelandic yoked pullover, inspired by EZ's version from The Opinionated Knitter, but with my own yoke pattern. i guess that would make me stranded in a country with one of the lower population densities in the world - iceland

after that might be the nordic sweetheart hat.

how exciting that so many knitters have joined up!

Holy crow! My own section!

You've got what I'm making kind of wrong (totally my fault), because I'm planning to make two things. The first is a self-designed sweater for my mom, the beginnings of which can be seen here, then Forest for myself, sometime after January, probably.

This will be the most fun knit-along to follow since the Nordic one last year!

I missed roll call too - right now I'm making a scrolly-looking patterned sock, and then I've got many many colors for a fair isle project that hasn't been identified. Either way, I think I'm mostly stranded on my own!! Lydia

Does that mean I have to finish Kashmir before Alcea & Allover (by Starmore) ;-)

I've made a project decision, finally - I'm jumping on the Eunny bandwagon and will knit up the Anemoi mittens.

You guys are troopers for compiling all this info!

I'm Stranded Without a Compass, working on Fair Isle Socks without a pattern.

(Pressed my nose to the screen in order to copy one of Yarn Harlot's latest blog socks. Now into the foot section with both - first one is pictured on my blog)

Folk Socks from Estonia is on order, but without a compass, a map or much of a sense of direction...I may already be in the right group :)

Lmfao @ the stranded without a compass remark. Hahahhaha. Necia THINKS she's making Helgi's Mittens by Nancy Bush. The pattern can be found in Folk Knitting in
Estonia. I will let ya'll know about my hat, when I'm half way through with the mittens. I MIGHT change my mind though, because I have 1 more book on the way. I plan on starting next weekend.

I *thought* I knew where I was going! I'm knitting fair isle gloves adapting patterns in Carol Rasmussen Noble's book. I'm also doing some of the Fake Isle hats. I think my course is set for Fair Isle after all.

Eek! I totally forgot to let anyone know I'd posted about the challenge! Just as well though, since I totally changed my mind when I saw the new knitty. My new post's up now, and I'm knitting the Center Square hat.

you guys are so awesome! thanks for all your work on the kal! I was without a compass before (having never done colorwork) but right now, I am stranded with Fair Isles with a toddler hat and then will move to Turkey (with a hat from Schurch's Hats On! book. Then to Norway with Zimmermann's Norwegian Mittens. I truly need a compass to get to all of my destinations!

Delinquent Sarah P. is making self-designed mittens that lean on Nancy Bush's Folk Knitting in Estonia for motifs and techniques like vikkel braid. The ravens on the cuffs are out of my own noggin, and so is the thumb placement and design. Pictures on my blog tomorrow!

Wow, what an amazing list!
Like many people, I'm stranded with Eunny Jang, making Endpaper Mitts. I'm loving looking at the different colours everyone has chosen & I can't wait to see how they all turn out ;)

(this is Wendi)

I have been frustrated by a lack of inspiration. So to get things going, I will do another Madison's Hat or two (from the pattern on my website) -- though maybe with a different chart this time, and more than 2 colors. I'll blog it once I have enough to photograph.

Like many I am in love with the Endpaper mitts, but I don't have the yarn on hand to knit them yet. Soon, soon.

My "Tardy to the Party: in which I finally get my act together for the Stranded KAL" post is up! I've finally decided what I am going to make and have set forth a detailed list...project decision galore over at my blog!

An update for me. I guess I am stranded on Fair Isle with the Katherine of Aragon sweater from Alice Starmore's Tudor Roses in Jamieson & Smith yarn. I am told that my yarn will arrive in 3 to 13 days. I'm hoping for sooner!

Blogger Laura said...

finally got my yarn and started my endpaper mitts in earnest last night! yay! the holiday knitting has been very cable-heavy, so this is a nice change of pace.

i think i've put the ix-nay on those fair isle socks. will require too large purchase of yarn. so, instead, after the endpaper mitts, i believe i will remain stranded with eunny & do her anemoi mittens.

Hey there! I finished that Poetry in Stitches sweater (pg 66) you can check it out at the blog or on the Flickr group. I'm finishing up some HelloYarn squirrel mittens for a christmas gift and then I'll decide what( sweater) is next. Those Anemoi mittens are pretty tempting too.
