Turning a Corner - guest blogger Steph

So I may have become a KAL addict. In my attempt to focus more on using my stash and less on buying yarn I have signed myself up to 3 KALs(this one is included).  I can't seem to help myself.

The good news is that I am turning a corner both figuratively and literally on the Ashby on I  did the short row turn and am on to Chart D. I don't know if my gauge is off or if this is going to grow a bit  but it seems a bit small to me. It will be fun to watch  and see what happens. I'm headed on a yarn-cation next week to see the "Interpretations 2" trunk show next weekend in Portland and take a couple classes with Joji; I'm hoping I can make some good traction on my Ashby.


  1. kal's are great motivators, Steph, especially when you've gathered a fun group to knit with!

    your Portland trip sounds GREAT! can't wait to hear how you liked Joji (are you taking the train down?)

  2. Mel,

    I am so psyched to go. I am driving down with a friend on Friday, and plan to take her Sweater Design and her Sweater Fit class at HappyKnits. Let me know if you or Kelly need any yarn form PDX, I am excited to go to Portland for as a tourist and explore it and its yarn shops.

  3. I loved yarn shopping in Portland! KnitPurl was my fav, but we also went to Twisted and Dublin Bay. We also spent a day at that book shop, you know the one ;)

    1. I am really excited about it. I have heard the book store is pretty amazing.

  4. I can't wait to see your finished Ashby. Have fun on your trip, it sounds wonderful.

  5. I can't wait to finish it too. I love the product, but I think I am going to need a break from charted cables. HA! If it is anything like KALs I will probably cast on for something with cables soon

  6. yarn-cation! HA

    Sounds wonderful, I'd pay to see Joli ~

    Enjoy, I know you will
