Stashalong Archive: July's KAL within a KAL

Here are some photos of the yarn I'll be using for the July KAL within a KAL. First up is some Cotton Fleece for the Monica Tank for my niece. That little portion on the needle has already been frogged because I decided I didn't want to stitch seems, so I cast on circulars and will just knit the tank in-the-round.

Next up are some yarns I am thinking of using for the tote bag for my Secret Pal. I've decided to use the Suki pattern from Knitty. I thought I had some peach somewhere in my stash (she likes peach, purple and turquoise), but I can't find it right now. I'm only going to use one of those purples, I just haven't decided on which one.

Stashalong Archive: July KAL and MY new goals

Sorry about that hit the enter button

So here is my July project.... MY hubby's Harry potter socks... I started them today with Knitpicks palette in the Fingerweight ... love it.

I have to redo my order of projects and will be posting them shortly. I got into Ravelery and it made me realize that some of my goals were met and I hadnt updated. I did have to buy yarn to finish my June KAL project which is below but it was one skein and I used up 20. So I dont think I get a strike.

I am going to Stitches in August and will use one of my free days there.

But I did buy some yarn to make a blanket for my MIL wedding. So I will happily take it.... But I have to say that it was my first yarn purchase since I commited in Jan. Not bad.

Stashalong Archive: July KAL Goals

You ladies are awesome. I've just read thru the most recent posts for the Kal and have been inspired, amazed and thrilled. I see several things I'd like to make, ideas for some lone skeins that are looming in the basket and just overall encouraged. Thx ladies, you are an awesome group. I look forward to seeing all the progress and finish work. Now back to my clothes ~ oh, KimT your afghan squares gave me an idea for one of my clothes. ;D

Happy Knitting & 4th of July.

ps ~ I sent this as a post so I wouldn't have to write a comment on each because that would have taken a little too long w/my slow computer and blogger glitches. LOL Also, welcome new SALers. ;D
