Getting ready

As I'm about to write this post, I realize that in fact, I've never done it.  What?  A KAL...

I've been following for quite a while the blog Celtic Cast On.  If you like to read and admire frequent reports on gorgeous FOs, this is the blog to read!

Starting this Monday, Celtic Cast On is hosting a Business Casual KAL.  These socks I've always wanted to knit, so, without any further considerations, I was in.  And I'm ready.

The only thing on my needles right now are the beautiful Hedgerow Socks.  This is the second one:

 
I may add finishing these to the challenge of the KAL. We'll see how things go!
 
And my ball of Tempted Sly Grrl in the Dreamy colorway is all ready to go:

The gauge is done and the needles are ready too!

Check out the prize that you have a chance to win if you finish by March 25th: a skein of Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label Fingering Weight in the Atlantic colorway.  Wouldn't it make another gorgeous pair of socks?

Who's in?

I say heck yeah to socks! I think the Kal sock pattern will look perfect in the Tempted yarn. Your purple socks are beautiful.
Happy Knitting!

I love the socks you're currently working on! I'm joining the KAL too, and I'm looking forward to liberating some stash yarn :P

Love your socks! I'll have to knit them one day!

Those KAL socks look like a lovely knit. I wish I had more time so I could follow along.

The sock looks great.
I've never done a knit-a-long either and I really need one to keep my on task. LOL!
