Heather is getting to the final stage of her knitting. She is about to start the side borders! Yay!

I also spotted a gentleman working on the FPS ... find out who he is. :)

Wish you all a happy July 4th.

Surprise! Hot off the press!

Rochelle has started on the FPS again:
She is now on Tier 5. Believe it or not, she said the knitting has become mindless since this is her 3rd attempt. I don't want to wait another month to report on her progress, so we have a second post in June! YAY!

Summer is almost here and certainly somebody is still knitting. I have proof:
Micky has reached halfway in her stole ... and is striding onto the 13th tier. YAY!

Have a great time in June and I'll see you again in July. :)

Only one piece of news for today, but it's very good news -- Heather got her much needed extra skeins of Campfire Heather. Now she is working through Tier 20! Congratulations, Heather. Also congrats on her becoming a Raveler. :)

So it seems only a couple of you are still working on the FPS. I think this is a natural stage of any KAL. My thinking is as long as there is someone in the group working, I should keep the KAL blog open; however, it may make better sense to stop adding new members. So, if you have expressed interest in joining us lately, Debi and I sincerely thank you for the interest ... and the information and experiences we had shared in the blog would always be here to help.

Now, the latest update. I haven't received any news from Heather concerning the 3 skeins of yarns she needed to finish the project. Hopefully, all would work out alright.

Micky has made progress:

I always look forward to see Micky's progress ... as I am fascinated by the turn of colours. Actually, I am inspired to try using my last Opal Petticoat for an entrelac sock pattern again ... I think it would be great.

That's it for this month's update. See you in May. :D

First and foremost, we have another finisher amongst us!
This is Polly's finished stole, blocked and tidily folded. Go and admire other pictures of her beautiful FPS here. Congratulations, Polly! Your stole is stunning! Would you consider a modelling shot? ;)

Heather will be starting Tier 19. There have been some twists and turns in her yarn-for-the-stole story. First she found that she was short. Then KnitPicks told her they still have her colourway in stock. When the package finally arrived, she discovered that the yarns were of a different colourway! So, please wish Heather good luck in her search of yarns to finish the project.

Last but not least, look at Micky's multi-coloured stole:
I think it's growing nicely.

It's been one year! (ETA)

February 1st! Today is our KAL's one year anniversary! I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in this KAL. Hosting a KAL was a new experience to me and I had the chance of meeting all you wonderful knitters who are also passionate for lace. :)

Back to this month's update. Not a lot is going on. Micky is still working and is on Tier 8. Just Me is on Tier 15. Lastly, Polly has picked up her black FPS again after a hiatus of 6 months.

Well, this project does take a lot of patience, so let's take the approach of one tier at a time ... gradually, it'll come along. Wish you all have great progess!

I just read Heather's blog update. She is still working hard on the stole and is on Tier 17. However, she ran into quite a serious problem ... she might not have enough to finish the stole and the colour she is using has been discontinued by KnitPicks. Read more about it here to see if you can help her out. Thank you.
