So this is my first knit for the Classic "Must Knit" KAL:
I'm ready for casting on today. Inspired by all of the striped Featherweights I've seen out there, I ordered some Madtosh Lace in shire to combine with Jaggerspun Zephyr in Jade and Curry. Don't tell me I shouldn't mix a straight wool yarn with a wool/silk blend, please. After spending so much time mulling over my color combo, I need these colors, exactly these colors, to work together.
My color inspirations were taken from my Pinterest:

Remember how I said my eyes could be bigger than my stomach? Yeah, well, I'm now in KAL number 2 for August. Technically, the Featherweight counts for both the Classic "Must Knit" and Summer Sweater KAL. I just want to try all the things I want to try.
Okay, you guys should join up! Is there one pattern on Ravelry you feel like everyone has made except you? An Aidez? Jaywalker? or Owls? There's quite a list growing in the Yarngasm and A Homespun House groups on Ravelry. And since Kristin and Molly are promoting this KAL on their podcasts, I'm sure they'll be showing updates on their personal KAL projects.
