When Stephen West announced a KAL (Knit-along) on Ravelry, I immediatly signed up... I'm not so good at KALs, but I love Stephen's patterns...
SO... when we were yarn shop crawling with my girl-friend in Helsinki, I bought six skeins of Drop's Alpaca in three beautiful shades of grey... urged on by my friend who knows exactly how easily I'm hooked with greys!
The first clue was published on August 1st, but I didn't start until when we came back to Italy... The first two clues were quickly knit:
... then we were hit by a heat-wave, AND my rows got awfully loooooong (size 3mm needles and a million stitches) so I slowed down a bit and finished it yesterday!
It's grey (love) it's BIG and it's gorgeous! It's also 100% alpaca and very warm... taking these photos was... painful in 30° weather, not to speak of the looks I got when the other day I was knitting this at the pool-side... =) but I'm going to love this this winter!
