This is very exciting.

My first KAL. What makes it even better . . . It's a Debbie Bliss KAL!

I am going to knit the Simple Wrapover Sweater from Alpaca Silk Two. Here and there is some background information on my progress to date. Since I love the sample sweater, I am not going out on a limb and will knit as shown. Color, yarn and all. Ok, size may be a touch larger. . .

Right now, I have the right front panel finished. I have both stitch and row gauge. So I am hoping for a great fit.

Since I don't know all the "rules" for a KAL, please feel free to reel me back if I get crazy or miss something.

I was in the middle of this when the KAL started so, I'm not counting it as my contribution to the KAL!! It is finally finished (minus buttons cos I'm looking for the perfect button) and I thought I'd share. This is the Ribbed Cardigan from the Cashmerino DK Book. I knit it in Cotton Cashmere.

This is the back detail.
Now the big question is what do I do for the KAL?

Not So Recent Knit

Debbie Bliss Felted Bag-1

I just joined the KAL and I wanted to say hi. I am knitting a Debbie Bliss sweater out of Simply Soft but I thought I would put up a picture of my last Debbie Bliss FO. It is a felted bag made out of Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk from the Debbie Bliss Home book. I finished it at the very end of October and have used it quite a bit since. I plan on making at least one more when I get the chance since it has a very neat circular design on the base. I hope to get enough of my sweater done to post something next week.
