I think I'm becoming a joiner. I have already joined the Knittin' Mittens KAL.

I have never made a pair of mittens or gloves in my life, but hey, I am willing to try it. Now I just need to decide on a pattern. I have some lovely brown alpaca that would make some nice warm gloves, but yikes, I am scared to try gloves. Those fingers! They look really hard. You know I am an avid sock knitter, would I be able to make gloves? You experienced people out there, please let me know. And if you have an easy glove pattern to suggest, I would appreciate that too!

I think I'm joining the Sexy Knitters Club too.

Right now they are making Sizzle (and one other pattern), and I just happen to have the Sizzle pattern. I think this would be a fun knit. Now I just have to wait for my acceptance email.

So what KAL's are you all joining? Any great ones that I haven't heard about? I know there was a list somewhere of current ones, but I can't seem to find it.

Oh, I almost forgot, I started seaming my sweater last night. YAY!!!

Wish I could ease your fear of gloves, but I haven't tried gloves yet myself. And thanks for joining the KAL!!

I haven't tried gloves - the fingers scare me - I won't even try mittens because of the thumbs. You are very brave!
