Fall means KALs

I seem to be joining KALs and thinking about joining KALs constantly lately. Here are the latest to join the sidebar.

Socks


Sock-A-Month 2 -- I joined this one in time for September, and foresee having no trouble finishing a pair of socks a month. I love reading Chrissy's updates every Sunday, which is a great way to be introduced to new blogs and see the socks being knit around the blogosphere.

Count Your Socks -- surely you have seen this on everyone else's blog. I just decided to add the button to the sidebar to keep track of my socks in the drawer, with the goal to have a pair for at least every day of the week. I need to stop giving all my socks away! And just in case you can't be bothered to check the sidebar, I currently have 5 pairs, although one needs to be repaired.

Socktoberfest 2006 -- Lolly's at it again, hosting another garganutan KAL, this one in celebration of, that's right, sock knitting. My plan is to make another attempt at the simple stockinette socks.

Charity


Red Scarf Project 2007 -- Norma's hosting the KAL for this one. I have a bunch of red Alpaca in my stash to make a scarf for foster children heading to college. I am relieved that I have until January to finish this one.

Pretty in Pink -- Knit pink for breast cancer awareness, or knit for cancer charities. My current main WIP is the perfect project for this. I'm knitting Shedir is for my son's teacher, who, unfortunately, needs it for herself. Pics posted soon.


This list does not even include the KALs I am considering...Zimmermania, Fall Cables KAL...

I have been joining several of the same KALs - and starting one too! ;) Should be a great fall!

Hurray! These are all fun! I think I can try to do a pair of socks a month. And since I gave a pair away, I have 2 pairs in my drawer. And a 3rd on the way.

I've wanted to do the Red Scarf Project -- I'll get the RWS knitters on that one ...

i'm a dropout of the first sock-a-month deal. i wish i could, but man, i can't face the thought of it. you're a stronger knitter than i.

i am however, doing Zimmermania. you should, too.

Hmmm ... Zimmermania sounds interesting. Looks like a busy fall.

There are so many great KAL's out there. I just wish I had the budget and the time to keep up with all of them. As it is, I tend to go for the cheap and the easy, Dishcloth KAL's. Although I am going to knit a scarf for the Red Scarf Project and the Think Pink button has me intrigued.

Zimmermania is a bit scary for me - I'm not sure if I'm that "pify"!
