The response from the cybersphere has been incredible! To date there are 33 knitters signed up for the Elann Shawl Knit-a-Long! And there are still 14 invitations out that have not yet been activated. I had no idea this would be such a popular KAL! I'm liking it a lot! Several folks I know (yeah, me included) started prior to May 1. One knitter even had the nerve to finish her Luna! Svetlana is such a fast, talented and prolific knitter! Your Luna is stunning in the purple!
Congrats on having the first FO of the official KAL! I wonder how Joan's coming along in her search for more yarn to finish her first Luna? T is almost finished with her gorgeous green Luna that is truly evocative of SK's original inspiration (go back to her post from 4/29 on this KAL!) in green Paton's wool.
But this KAL isn't all about the Luna...oh no...there's a lot more knitting going on....I've seen an Adara on the needles, and a Moonlight Sonata. There's Victorian Lace happening, a Peruvian Cuzco,(go help Amanda decide upon a yarn for her luscious wrap) and a couple of SunRays (including mine! whoohoo!) I'd post a photo but am having technical difficulties with the camera that just returned from a little trip w/ the DH...(OK techno guy...what didja do to my camera?)
Just a few tips for folks new to blogland. If you want to review from day one, just scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "older posts". Or go the sidebar and see if what you want is posted under the archives.
I'll be doing a weekly wrap (get it..haha!) of all KAL participants who've posted, along with the photobucket or flickr on the sidebar for the fabulous finished objects beginning this weekend. Hope everyone is enjoying the lovely spring weather. Knit on!
