And with any luck, I'll be finished most of it before the next KAL over at the Knit British and Brityarn groups. This is a challenge to knit a garment in time for a meet-up at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival in mid-March. It has to be knitted out of 100% British fibre and use at least three natural shades. I spent most of the weekend dithering over what pattern to knit but have decided on Buchanan by Kate Davies from her wonderful Yokes book.
I did a quick swatch and think the design will really lend itself to the different shades in my stash. The main body colour will be in Blue-faced Leicester and the yoke will have some Swaledale, Manx Loaghtan and Falklands Island wool in it. The KAL starts on Thursday the 14th and I can't wait to cast-on.
I've also finished two books this week and even went to my first Zumba class at the gym. It also stayed dry enough at just the right times of the day to allow me to walk to work four times, something that I really enjoy as it helps clear my mind along with exercising the body. I may even sneak a film in tonight as well.
