When Life gets hectic, Knit more

Life seems to be increasing hectic from this mid September to mid October--I have major items to complete for work. And, when things get nuts, I just want to hide and knit. On top of all the other items I am finishing, I was tempted by and eventually joined the Black Water Abbey Kerry Cardigan Knit Along.

I have been wanting to knit with this yarn for a very long time. Who can resist a yarn that is made at a small Co. Kilkenny, Ireland mill? Plus, BWA will send a free color card. I asked for one two years ago and every month I pull it out, look at the colors, and try to decide what I want to make first. The knitalong just pushed me over the edge!

It looks like this will be a very helpful knit along--the leader has made charts and a check list so far. I like the very active knit alongs the best (otherwise I tend to pick up other projects, cough , cough), so I joined up. We have an Oct 1 start date.

Here's the pattern picture, thanks to BWA:

The pattern is one of their own (6$). Plus, I ordered the cutest celtic cross buttons. And what color? Ocean from BWA:

The owner, Marilyn, said my items would be mailed Monday. I can't wait! Better finish that denim knit before the wool shows up!
