I've just joined to KAL's (Knit-A-Long's) - one for the B4 Bag (this month sometime) and Tempting II (July 1st). The first one is an informal type kal that formed on my felted bag list and the second one is with the Sexy Knitter's Club that I just recently joined. I'm now trying to decide what type of yarn and colors I want to use for both. I think I may use Reynolds Lopi (bulky) for the B4 bag (in variegated gray and sage heather) and I'll probably use Rowan Calmer (which is what the designer used) for Tempting II (in Chiffon (mediumish purple) or Slosh (a navyish type blue) .
I think they'll both challenge me is slightly different ways. The B4 bag involves knitting with beads and doing bobbles, neither of which I've ever done. Tempting II requires me to learn how to join sleeves to the body of the top. I think I'll like both of them. I figured if I did two of them at the same time I could do whichever challenge I felt up to at that moment. :)
I can't wait!
