KAL Business Casual - Week 2 progress

My KAL is going well especially considering that I've been tinking almost all day yesterday.  This morning was much more pleasant as I knit the third repeat of the leg and started the heel.  I'm now at the gusset.

I've had trouble with round 17 of this pattern.  It's a little fuzzy over there at the end of row 16 and start of row 17 because I worked so much in that area to find out what was "going on".  The yarn is a little fuzzy and the sts are not twisted right.  Still, it's not apparent enough for me to re-do it (believe it or not!)

Have a great Sunday everyone!

This will be an extra short post because I want to clean up in the house and then, knit!  Here's my progress after week 1 on the Business Casual KAL!  I love the pattern and I love this technique!

Have a great Sunday!

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?
