motivation, support, prizes & pretties

there are a couple of fun things taking place in blogland

andi from my sisters knitter is hosting knit a long/crochet a long

this kal/cal is to help you finish those projects that you started but lost your enthusiasm

 somewhere along the way....

you know the ones

they are buried in your knitting basket


stuck in a project bag

socks with no toes, sweaters with one arm, gloves with no fingers...

there is hope i tell you!!!!!!

 we knitters & crocheters who start projects, will finish up or two or three or twenty projects

with the support of each other with this KAL/CAL

and if that isn't enough to coax you into joining...there are PRIZES!

you can read all about it at my sisters knitter or ravelry

below, you'll find my unfinished projects...

the pattern is favorite scarf ever the yarn started out to be a pair of socks but 
the pattern was lost with this yarn so i frogged and it's on it's way to a scarf
it has been on it's way for well over a year...
i like it but i'm wondering if my two sides are going to match?
it may get frogged...again

this is addy's tiny tea leaves sweater...the pattern is easy
and is going pretty quickly!

this is the "V" sock out of socktopus
this too is coming along well
(said she with one unfinished sock)
if it were going to be a spa sock, i would be half way there!
it's not going to be a spa sock but...just saying

these are the three projects that i AM going to finish for the KAL

i would love for you to join me & andi would love it too!


there is a tea cup exchange over at Enchanting Rose

thanks to sherri at little house in paradise for sharing the info

stop by and visit these girls...they have the loveliest tea cups & two of my favorite blogs



  1. I am so excited for the KAL! Good luck to both of us :) The way the colors pool in your scarf is super pretty! and you are almost finished with that cute little cardi :) yay!! I recently frogged a pair of "spa socks"... it took me until the arch to finally realize they would be too small!! (and too tight)

  2. Thank you for mentioning the KAL. It has been such a treat to see all the projects that everyone is hoping to finish. love all your projects. I hope we all end up with some really great finished knits by the end of this KAL and hopefully you will walk away with a prize!
