Feelin' Like a Floozy

My knitting group is starting the new year off with reckless abandon. We're doing a Feel Like a Floozy KAL. Everday for the first week in January we're going to cast on a new project. Or two, three, etc. It can be anything and we don't have to finish it. Frogging is allowed.

Today I casted on Le Slouch by Wendy Bernard.

I'm using Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed. I'm loving the nubbiness of this yarn in seed stitch. I'm planning to finish this one after I buy some longer dpns. I'm squeezing 103 stitches on 4 six inch long needles. I finally put those little rubber thingies on the ends of the needles to keep from losing stitches but I only have two (it was getting quite frustrating).

I wonder what I'm going to feel like knitting tomorrow?!

Wanna join in the fun? Grab some needles and yarn and cast on!

I've seen all your completed projects for christmas and they were beautiful! Don't worry; I do the same thing too. It's called Camnesia. Last Christmas, I made Brad drive around the block several times while I finished my brother's hat. Since Le Slouch is getting big, why not try all of the stitches on a 24" circular until it's too small from the decreases? I think that's what I did. Good luck!

Mmm, tweedy goodness. Great choice for your first floozy foray!

Hmmm. Le Slouch for the floozy KAL, what a great idea....I may have to copy this one.

Love that tweedy will make a wonderful hat
