New things and updates on ongoing projects

I started a new project today and joined a new KAL. The KAL is "Seasons of Lace." This is a KAL where you choose the pattern(s) that you want to knit with the yarn(s) you want to use. There will be prizes given out for different things, during the KAL. It runs from June 21 to September 21, 2008 for the Summer season, then there will be a winter season. Next year they are hoping to do all four seasons.

The new project is "Mystic Waters" a triangular shawl by Anna Dalvi. I'm using some 6/2 weaver's cotton in Ultramarine blue on size 4US needles for it. This will be either a b-day or Christmas present for my oldest dd. She loves the pattern and choose the yarn for it.

The scarf out of the Paton's SWS is on hold until I can get the extra skein of yarn for it. I am getting about 20" out of a skein of yarn and want it about 60" long. With the length I'm getting out of one skein, I know that I'll need a total of three and I only bought two. I got two of the stripes, so will pick up a solid to match and use that for the middle of the scarf, with the stripes at the ends.

Vkandis is up to row 134. I did one row today...took me most of the day to do that, as I was having problems concentrating on it. I'll do the plain row tomorrow and try to get pics of one section to show how it is turning out with the beads.
