What's a KAL? It's a knit-A-Long. I've been working on a pair of socks when a new to me website Twice Sheared Sheep came into my life. Probably by FB or IG 😏. Anyway, they have cool little gadgets to help with knitting and they announced a KAL. It was for a hat called The Holly Beanie. Now I've done KAL's in the past with not much luck because they were a MKAL (mystery). 

The hat looked cute and the way KAL's work is the whole group of people who sign up all knit the same thing at the same time. We post pics of our progress along with questions etc. 

I just finished mine and it's cute and the color I chose goes nicely with my new coat. 

When you get near the crown you have such a small circumference, you change to double pointed needles. Some people knit the whole hat or whatever it is they're knitting in the round, on double points. Anyway, I have a book by Sally Melville called the knitting Experience Book 1, The Knit Stitch. That's how I learned to knit. I used this book. Anyway, she talks about how cool it looks to knit on double pointed needles because it looks soooo complicated and you look soooo talented but in reality, you're only knitting with 2 needles the whole time. 😀

I loved working the cables. It's been a long time since I did cables and Twice Sheared Sheep sent some awesome wooden cable needles in the kit for the hat. 

I'm working on my Project Life album for 2024 and will post January soon. 

As always,

Thanks for stopping by.
