Holla Knits KAL
So a while back, I came across Holla Knits, a site dedicated to providing fun, stylish and very wearable knit and crochet patterns. I enjoyed cruising through their patterns, but none really called to me. Well, maybe the Henri. But in general, they didn't really seem to be my style.
But I kept coming across them, on Ravelry and on various knitting blogs. And every time I came across their patterns, my eye would linger longer and longer.
Then the Holla Knits KAL (knit-along) was announced, and I looked through the patterns again. And all of a sudden, I could see it. I could see these patterns in my wardrobe. I loved the Henri, but as I said last post, I'm a cardigan girl. But then I looked closer at the Eastwood Cardigan.
I'm knitting a size 40 using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed. I picked up the brown during KP's sale a while back (I think I paid about $1.70/ball), and the blue a month or so later to pair with the brown. I love the colours together, but I sort of wish I'd used the blue for the front panels. Oh well.
The KAL started on Feb 3rd, and I cast on that morning. Got the first panel done in time to leave for camp on the 6th, and managed to knit the second panel while in camp.
