Holy Crap, I think I've done it!

I think I have set up a knit along blog - I'm pretty darned excited and I am hoping some of you out there will come join me. The KAL is for the Firestarter sock - luscious sock pattern by Yarnissima. If you follow that link you will stumble upon Yarnissima's e-mail, she will send you the pattern gratis upon request - yay!

It is an amazing pattern, toe up - intended for the Magic Loop - great instruction on the crochet provisional cast on, and the coolest toe-up gusset ever! Marjan also includes darling tiny charts to cut out and laminate for on-the-go - imagine! Come on over to the KAL blog , I am awful lonesome for some fun knitters. But please be patient with me as I am a greenhorn with the html. (Hence why I think, at least on my computer, my Avatar and links are at the bottom of my blog...at least on my computer...)

I have cast mine on with Iris Sibirica from none other than Wollmeise - and I'm in love - with the yarn and the pattern. So my goal is to spread the love!

I'm so excited, I even made up some buttons, the photos are courtesy of Yarnissima's blog. Here's what I have come up with so far...

Please e-mail me at peaknitATgmailDOTcom if you want me to "invite" you to the KAL blog. Please include your blog address so that I can "link" you in the sidebar....if can figure that out, that is. :)

Thanks Ellemaciltur for encouraging me - or were you laughing at me? and Yarnissima for your blessing to go forward.

Do you have any idea how many projects I have that seem to need completion RIGHT NOW? And yet, there I went, emailing Yarnissima and soon I'll be over there, blindly following you down the path to more gorgeous socks!

You can count me in!!! But I just started the second Marina Piccollo, so I might be a little behind. I better go downstairs and get knitting!

You are a brave soul venturing into new territory. I hope you get a fabulous turnout. I can't join you right now, I have a little too much on my plate. I will watch from the sidelines though. Good luck!

Yay!!! You know, I definitely didn't laugh at you. I'm happy that you're hosting this. And this will mean, that I'll have to cast on soon. ;-)

Rock on girl! That is great that you started a KAL!

This sock pattern is very cool. Is it hard? If you don't think it's too hard for a girl that's only knitted socks a few times then I might want to join you. Looks like fun!

Congrats on setting up the KAL. I am trying to decide if I should join....I am working on like 5 things right now, and I am dying to start another few projects. Why can't I just win the lottery?!? That way I don't need to work, or do housework, or laundry...all things that take away knitting time. :)

Okay Peaknit. I want join, especially since Claudia just emailed me and my Wollmeise is on it's way! Yea!! However, I feel very hesitant because I have not yet learn to knit on one circ, although I intend to learn, I'm not sure I want to yet. I'm pretty content with two circ's.

I just received the pattern from her just a couple days ago. So I guess I'll just have to join the KAL!
