Or just start on my own?

So, the gals of Cleveland Knits West over on Ravelry have decided to do a sweater KAL, Hey, Teach from And I love this pattern. And I want to knit along. And I have the yarn. And I want to have the sweater before the end of the summer. And the group decided to start the KAL on July 1st. And I finished all of my current WIPs recently.

(But, remember, I only knit one or two, or at the most 3, projects at a time. So, all that finishing is not as impressive as it sounds at first read.)

Anyway, I couldn't wait. . .I had to start. . .I just HAD to! So, here is the back of the sweater, and I have knit about half of the left front as well.

A great sigh of relief as I see the lace becoming the sweater which will become my best friend in an over-air-conditioned office. Yay!

In other news, today Hubster and I went to see The Taking of Pelham 123 with John Travolta and Denzel Washington. Now, I don't know if I have mentioned this before or not, but I am a HUGE John Travolta fan! From Vinnie Barbarino to Danny Zuko to the mother of that girl in Hairspray. . .OMGosh! I have always thought he is soooo hot! (I know, he was in drag in Hairspray, but that was the point! Still hot!) Yeah, I got it bad! Hahaha!

It was a good movie. Lotta swearing, but then there was a lotta tension, and tension in the movies often leads to that. So, in this knitter's opinion, it was a good movie. Totally worth the price of the ticket, especially if you like Travolta or Washington.

Well, that seems like a good length for a blog post, no? I think yes. It's good to see you here, and I hope you are enjoying all that summer has to offer you.

Knit in good health!


  1. Yes yes you silly girl you started without us! That's OK we won't banish you or anything. You will just get to assist us with any questions we have. Perhaps I should sneak my yarn to your house and when you finish yours you can start my hey teach for me!

  2. So pretty! I can see why you didn't want to wait :)

    Love that lace pattern!
