I found this pattern at lion brand’s site and fell in love with it. It uses their Bonbon kits which are absolutely adorable. For the picture above, they used the color way “Celebrate“. I chose “Nature” and assigned the colors as so:

Heidi MKAL (The Unique Sheep)
The Unique Sheep is having another MKAL, starting May 20th.
It’s based on the story, Heidi. Here is a picture of my yarn and beads that I will be using for the knit-a-long:
I got it from the Unique Sheep. It’s lace weight on their base called Eos, which is half wool and half silk. The colorway is called Tranquility.
15 knitting problems most knitters have!
Craftsy blog posted this post on the 15 most common knitting problems. I concur with them! Most of them are frustrating!
1. Running out of yarn just before finishing a project! To get around this, I’ve always tried to over estimated yarn (my husband hates that I have a box of scrap yarn!). Sometimes, depending on the project, I buy a full skein of excess yarn. That way I know I won’t run out. It has saved my bacon 3 times I know of in the past.
Circo Cowl Completed!
Here is a close shot of the finished Cowl. It is currently being blocked to make it look pretty :).
Oh and if you wanted to make sure that it is for certain a mobius cowl:
there is the twist for you! I’m blocking it on two rolled up towels to stretch it out because you can’t really pin it on a blocking board very easily. It was the suggestion of Laura Nelkin, the pattern designer.
Circo MKAL clue 1
The last project for this year’s M-Club is going to be a cowl called Circo Cowl by Laura Nelkin.
This project is divided up into 4 clues sent weekly on Monday evenings. I’ve gotten the first clue done:

Once and Future King Clue Four is completed!
Once and Future King Mystery Knit along
One of my favorite knitting activities are MKALs or Mystery Knit alongs. I’m currently in one by The Unique Sheep called “Once and Future King” which started on July 17. The way a Mystery Knit along works is you get the pattern piecemeal, usually bits of it a week apart, giving you time to work on the bit you were given. I’m a little behind on this MKAL, as I’m still working on the first clue, and the second clue was released on the 24th. Once I get the clue done, I’ll post a picture of the completed clue.
