We host very frequent KALs at our LYS (Pompon Laine Café) and it usually has one very positive effect : it keeps me on track with a deadline!
I'm a very polygamous knitter and I often have at least a dozen WIPs laying around my craft room. Some nights, I'll even alternate rows on 3-4 different projects just to keep me going when my knitting mojo is off. But when we have a common focus on a designer or a category of knits, I become a disciplined knitter and finish it in time!
This sweater was knit during our #kalpomponcaitlinhunter. The pattern is Whitehorses by Caitlin Hunter. I used Tynn Merinoull by Sandnes Garn, which is a fingering weight superwash merino with a nice twist, combined with Drops Lace, an alpaca silk blend. The fabric it creates is amazing! I'm already trying to figure out what other sweater I could knit with this blend.
It was wise to pick such a neutral grey as I can pair it with everything. I try to knit more neutral and subtle colours these days, as I know they are easy to use and can then be worn with colourful shawls!
I though I'd have a hard time with the cropped fit, but it turns out I love it! Now to find all the high waisted garments... or sew them!
With the Holidays around the corner, I hope to get more time for photoshoots and blogging. Fall is tricky, with its crazy schedule and scarce lighting, but I have a lot of new knits to feature!
