Hello fellow knit-alongers and readers. I thought I would share a short little post to update you on my Briar Rose Knit Along. While I promised myself that I would not update you on every half inch added, I figure I'm at an appropriate spot to show you some progress. The sweater is about a third of the way through - and there's not much time left in this KAL. Yikes! I need to get going.
|I decided to try it on, just to see how the fit is - spot on!|
|Look at the window behind me, green grass! Though I hear snow is coming.|
I'm hoping to catch up to where I should be this weekend, but no promises. I haven't had a chance to look at too many other KALers but two people who are inspiring me are Portia (love what she is doing to add some color!) and Zilredloh (scroll to the bottom of post to see knitting progress).
This is my second on-line something-along (the other was the swing dress sew-along). What I really enjoy about them is meeting a bunch of fabulous people with similar interests and encouraging each other along the way. The on-line sewing community is so supportive. But I do admit that I sometimes get frustrated and get caught up in the feeling of falling behind. What are your thoughts on sew-alongs, knit-alongs and the like? I really want to know.
Live the moment, love life!
