I did it again.... KAL time!

Apparently I can't seem to pass up sweater knit alongs, even though in the past I can't seem to finish what I join (shaking head).  With that being said, silly me has joined yet another sweater KAL but this one I simply could not resist as it's  hosted by The Woolly Thistle online over at Ravelry.  

The Rules:
Knit or crochet any Adult Sweater pattern in any weight yarn. The sweater must be knit out of at least 80% of yarn which was purchased from The Woolly Thistle at any point in time. Visit The Woolly Thistle now! To be inclusive and to recognize the work that goes into color work vests, we will allow adult-sized color work vests in this KAL. All other wip’s should have sleeves.
For me this sweater KAL is pure motivation to finish a sweater in two months in DK weight.  I hope to have this finished way before the end date as I would love to wear it while on vacation in October.

For the sweater, I've decided on Seven Sisters by Sarah Pope.  This design called to me the moment I saw it in the By Hand Serial Lookbook#6 - Blue Ridge Mountains.  It's simple with a lovely star motif around the yoke.

The yarn I've chosen is WYS Aire Valley DK in a lovely shade of Gray.  I've not used this particular British wool before, so this will be lots of fun!

Until next time ~ stay creative!
