Here We Go

To tell the truth...with the exception of Socktoberfest, this is my first KAL. I am a KAL virgin! Who am I? Well I am a stay at home mom of three, an avid knitter and crocheter and working really hard to get published! That is me so you can put a face with the name! ( I know that helps me)

When Val contacted me about doing this KAL I was totally supportive. Now look at it...she has put it all together along with a GREAT button and everything. I think we all need to take a minute and give a silent cheer for Val!

I can't wait to start on this wonderful sweater. If I don't start soon my little tyke is going to be too big to ever wear it. Lord knows I don't want that to happen. So, this was the picture from my New Years Resolution: Knitters Style. I am posting it here so you all can see the colors I chose to use. I strayed away from the green not because I don't like it but because I thought it would look better on JoJo:-)
So, in the famous words of Oscar the shark in SharkTale: Let's Get this Party Started! (one two many cartoony movies)

Hi Marly! You look the furthest along so far! I love the peapod sweater. What kind of yarn is that blue?

Marly! You lovely thing--I want to know the same thing as Kristen about the blue yarn.

I'm going to put up another Pea Pod button that will have a white background, if you or anyone else would prefer it.

Valerie said...

There. I re-did the original button with a white ground and put up a new one. No, Kristen, I didn't get Eric to draw the baby in the pod, I just sucked it in and did it myself. Is it okay?

Kristen said...

Your buttons are BE-U-Tiful! I'm so impressed. I thought Eric did it until you "fessed up" Nice Job!!

Marly said...

Okay, sorry I didn't get back to you until now...

That Yarn is from my favorite Yarn Store...

www.showersofflowers.com ( I know weird name but if you read the meaning of it you will understand)

It is Butterfly Mercerized Cotton Super -10 Double Knitting weight sort of a combonation of navy and electric blue...if you can imagine it!

I can't wait to work with is. What colors are you all going to do yours in?
