Whew, I haven't done a KAL in ages. I'm a monogamous knitter and was working on a hat when Melissa posted about this one, but the hat is done, so I'm jumping right in with Rachel's Shawl. This will be a Christmas gift for my mom (have you started your Christmas knitting yet? I'm horribly behind).
I have quite recently started dyeing my own yarn, and thought this might be a fun project for something I dyed myself. Last night I dyed up about 560 yards of 100% merino in this amazing rosy red, which I think my mom will LOVE. (It's so hard to photograph red...but I think I've got it pretty close.) It's still a wee bit damp in a couple of places, so I've got it spread out on my balcony to get good and bone dry before I wind it and start knitting. I'm extra excited since this will be my first time knitting something I've dyed. Fingers crossed I don't end up allergic to this yarn! :-o
Happy KAL from the other Melissa :)
