Saturday: I’m Makin’ It

I’ve got a chance. I’m takin’ it. Do you remember that show? I’m old. I remember it. Is that the same guy from An American Werewolf in London? It is, isn’t it. David Naughton.

I joined The Woolly Thistle’s Colorwork Accessory KAL and I’m really enjoying this slipstitch pattern Kenora Toque. Look at my loopy floats.

I donated a handknit cowl made with the merino yarn I was given in Kenya to our fundraiser silent auction at work. The winner chose vermillion for the color (one of my favorite colors!) and I dyed the yarn today.

I sewed my project bag for our Water shawl KAL. I have enough fierce merpeople fabric to sew three more bags: one for Marilee, one for Bonny, and one for…? Even the fish are giving attitude on this fabric. I love it so much. I’m making a gradient bag for Sarah. I’m not sure what Laura wants yet. Am I missing anyone? Our KAL starts March 1.

When I look at the mermaid with the ship on her head, I think about the film Revolution with Nastassja Kinski. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen that film, but I remember it having stunning costumes.

What are you making today? Are you watching any old films from your youth?

  1. Now I have that song in my head. Thanks Alissa! I love your project bag. I can’t cast on another project, so I will enjoy watching the KAL from blogville. I am planning on watching Spinal Tap; my husband (a musician) has never seen it. Before I divorce him, I should at least give him the chance, right??? hahaha!

  2. I was thinking about doing the Woolley Thistle KAL but decided to work on my WIPs so I can start the Water KAL on March 1. I need to cake up my yarn for it. Your yarn dying adventures inspire me to try my hand at it. The mermaid bag looks wonderful.

  3. Your hat and the yarn are both lovely 🙂 I’m so excited to get going on our KAL! I do remember that show. Not sure what we are watching tonight – we just got through all the Marvels. Maybe something interesting on National Geographic?

  4. So much eye candy in this post Alissa! And really nice palette too – that Rauma is so rich, and so is that vermillion, such jawdroppingly beautiful hues, I do envy the lucky recipient. And then the cooler tones of your last picture – a joy to read and admire! 😍

  5. The Buffalo plaid will be amazing with those colors, and your dye job is heavenly! I am so tempted to try the Water shawl, but I don’t wear shawls ever, or scarf things either, so I hesitate. I keep looking at that Hawthorne tonal, thinking there’s two skein, but that is supposed to be a sock experiment…😑🧶. I don’t have time for the KAL, if I want to do the Sewing Bee….choices, choices!
