Rules for Feeding the Stash

New Year, New KAL

Since I've discovered that I really like KALs, I decided to jump in on the Selfish Sweater KAL from Untangling Knots. I've done one of Andi's KALs before, back in 2014 (the Marion KAL), and while I struggled with the social aspect of it, I've long admired Andi's patterns, and I've always been happy with the ones I've knit, so I figured why not.

I had six balls of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed in my stash-this is pretty deep stash, and I have no clue what I was planning when I bought these, but I decided they'd be perfect for Wainthropp, and so far I'm thrilled with how it's knitting up.

Hopefully I'll be done with the body soon, and then it'll just be me on sleeve island. I don't have buttons for this sweater yet, but I have to run to the city at the end of the month and I'm planning to hit the yarn store while I'm up there and hopefully I'll be able to snag something perfect then. 

The KAL goes through February 14, so there's still time to jump in on the action if you'd like! There are a lot of awesome knitters in the group, I'm having a blast watching everyone's cardigans come together!

Linking up with Yarn Along


  1. You always know how to find the best KALs :) That;s going to be a lovely cardigan, good luck on sleeve island!

  2. I also find the social aspect of KALs the most difficult part, maybe its just not enough time to be online? Good luck with your sweater, looks like you're cruising! -Sierra
