Adventures in Lace KAL

Thanks to all the kind notes and comments regarding my uninspiredness.  I think it's just a case of the mid-winter ho-hums.  I took an evening off from knitting last night (it was bowling night) and today I feel much better about things.

One thing I am getting excited about is for the Adventures in Lace KAL, organized by my blogfriend, Kate, of Lazy Kate Creates.  It starts in February and I'm excited at the prospects of what pattern I'll choose.  I've been meaning to write about it before now, but I'm a bit blog-illiterate and couldn't figure out how to add the KAL button to my sidebar.  (I still haven't figured it out, but I'm working on it. ;) )

ETA:  Check out my sidebar. I grew some brain cells and figured it out. Well, it was actually a simple Google search.  Who knew?

I'm currently torn between using my Maplewing Shawl (yipes! I did not realize that I cast on for this way back in September.) and choosing a new and exciting project.

On one hand, having the Maplewing be my KAL project, I'll be sure to steadily work on it and maybe-possibly-there's-a-chance-but-it's-a-shot-in-the-dark it might get finished before I turn 40. (um, that's in 9 years for all of you keeping track.)

OR, I could choose something that's not in my pile of UFOs!  Before cold-sheeping it beginning the first of the year, I put in a last order at Webs and got a delicious hank of Madeline Tosh Prairie in the Clematis colorway.  I'm dying to use it and so I think this just might be the perfect situation.

I am in lurve with Haruni by Emily Ross (Rav it) or one of Anne Hanson's amazing designs, such as the Twinings Stole, the Autumn Arbor Stole, or the Birnam Wood Wrap?

Decisions, decisions....which would you choose?

  1. That yarn is one of my all-time favorite colors! I like your choice of color palate. As far as patterns go, I think Haruni is the prettiest!

  2. I agree that the Haruni is prettiest, in my opinion. It seems like a lot of people like that one, I think it's one of the most popular new designs on Ravelry :) I'm going to make it myself, if my ordered yarn arrives in time.

  3. I'm glad you have the mojo back! It's such an awful feeling to be uninspired!

    I think this is a good opportunity to finish up some WIPs, but if you're not in the mood there are so many choices! Good luck!

  4. All of those patterns are so gorgeous, I can see how it would be hard to choose. I really like the Autumn Arbor Stole, but probably wouldn't choose that because I'm a slow knitter and it's kind of huge. (I might have it done by the time I'm 50.) The Haruni shawl is lovely and so is the Twining Stole.
