I just finished my first KAL ever. I signed up end of August and immediately knew I was going to use Madelinetosh Tosh Light for this. It appeared to be a good choice, but then again, how could one ever be disappointed about choosing Madelinetosh …
I couldn’t wait for the first Clue to arrive. Clue one seemed to involve some serious knitting and so after clue one I was already largely behind on schedule. I remembered my lovely friend from Rodtrad’s warnings about September and October being busy months – which is absolutely true in my life as well – and about not wanting to miss a deadline, at least when you are a bit of a perfectionist.
Although I had promised myself NOT to follow the deadlines, I was happy to catch up during Clue two and three. These were really quick.
Then came Clue four and I had to make a decision on the edging: picot or i-cord bind off. I followed Stephen West’s recommendations on the picot edging, but I really had a hard time figuring that one out. No matter how many different ways I tried, my picots were enormous and anything but elegant. There was no comparison between my picots and the lovely edges from other members.
But hey, I wasn’t going to give up now and so I kept trying and after watching some tutorials on You-Tube I finally understood the “K2togtbl”, which was new to me. The good news is that after literally hundreds and hundreds of picots, I’ll probably remember it FOREVER!
At first I was puzzled by the wholes, but I totally grew in love with them.
