I'm Joining UP!

So I'm joining up to get some knitting going. I'm in the smack middle of three projects--the socks (1.25 finished), the shawl (25 inches finished), and Coquette sweater (back almost finished). It appears that 3 projects is one too many for me. I feel pretty discombobulated with all of these half finished pieces. 2 works better. So, I want to finish one of these up to move on.

The first to go? Socks. I'm going to focus on the last sock to get this out of the way. The Sock it to me along is actually going to be fun, since socks are where I am at!

What else am I joining? Why, Secret Pal 4! I think secret pals is a really neat group, so I was waiting for the new one to come along to join. If you are interested you have until Midnight EST Friday, January 21 to sign up. I'm already pondering who I will get and what I should get them!

While I was looking at the 2005 Knit-Alongs (take a look at the link--it is an updated list of all 2005 knit-alongs), I found the FBS Redux--the Flower Basket Shawl! This really pretty lacey shawl is from the Fall 2004 Interweave Knits. The really strange thing is that I found this knitalong after my visit to Americana Alpacas. And who can visit cute alpacas without buying some super soft yarn? Or actually, whose mother-in-law bought her some yarn? Yup. I had already thought about the Flower Basket Shawl, as it takes lace weight alpaca. And I found the perfect yarn on my visit:

Robin, one of the owners of Americana Alpaca, dropped it off at my house yesterday. I think this dark purple will be just gorgeous and can't wait to get going. Well, I can wait--have to get down to one project before I cast on for another. Look for projects being finished over the next couple of weeks...
