Here's a picture of my beginning of May KAL. For those of you who don't know what a KAL is, I'll try to explain. KAL stands for "knit a long". In the beginning of May, I received (via e-mail, of course!) about 10 rows of instructions for about 5-6 days. I have no idea what I'm going to be knitting (except that it is a dishcloth). At the end of the 5-6 days, I have a completed project.

This occurs again on the 15th of May--5 to 6 days of instruction, and again another dishcloth. But, it's all a mystery until it's completed. And one of the really cool things--the second KAL of the month--I always learn a new stitch or a new technique that I can carry over onto other projects--love that--learning new things!!

I can see the heart in the bottom of this one and the beginnings of something else--maybe a butterfly? Any quesses??

I'll post another picture when it's completed and then we can all see what it really is. I was sure I was knitting a dishcloth with an Easter egg on it in April. But, I was wrong--it turned out to be a bunny!!

Right now, I'm TRYING to teach myself to knit socks. I'm almost finished the first part of the first one, and I have this beautiful new yarn staring me in the face just calling to me to make it into a pair of socks. Well, just stop calling to me, please!! I have to finish two socks because I have two feet, and you'll just have to wait!!

I love your cloth - the color is really pretty. I haven't started mine yet, but probably today!
