I Have a Fever, and the Only Cure is More KALs

So...I appear to have been bitten by some kind of radioactive KAL bug. I really loved participating in the KALs for Great Northern, and I've had a blast with the Holla Knits KAL, and I'm well on track to finish my Nusa KAL cowl on time (two weeks left and I'm almost halfway through the stripes!), so clearly it's time for me to jump into two more.

I watched several bloggers do the Tops, Tanks & Tees KAL last year, and I thought it looked great, so I decided to jump in this year. After some deliberation, my project for this KAL is Make Up Your Mind in a couple of skeins of Colinette Jitterbug. I'm loving how it's knitting up so far, and since this project has been in my queue for years I'm really excited to finally be working on it.

I'm also jumping on board with The Perfect Crop Top KAL. I've loved seeing all of Teresa's crop tops on her Instagram, and I feel like I've been waiting for ages for this pattern to come out! I had planned to buy yarn for this at my retreat, but I didn't find anything that grabbed me, so when I got home I went stash diving and found these two perfect skeins of malabrigo sock that weren't already assigned to a project. So now I just have to get around to setting up my swift and winding these.

What about the rest of you? Anybody else participating in these or other warm-weather KALs?

Linking up with KCCO


  1. Ooo, Make Up Your Mind looks like it's going to be a fun knit! Can't wait to see your progress on it.

    I wish I was comfortable in cropped tops like the one you linked - it looks like the perfect crop top! I think you're going to rock it beautifully.

  2. That sounds real fun. I loved that crop top you had made earlier this year.

  3. Love your purple coloured wool. Sounds like fun.

  4. you really have caught the fever......and look at all the great stuff to add to your wardrobe when you're done!!! :)

  5. Aaaaah! I'm so flattered your knitting Make Up Your Mind for your (one of many) KAL!!! Very excited to see your finished result. And all those KALs are no doubt going to give great motivation to have some awesome FOs!

  6. Once I finish a pair of socks on the needles, I'm doing a cast on frenzy. Of what, I'm not sure but I'm excited about it. love your kals you are doing!!
