Greenwitchknitter thanks for joining in with me:cheering: , Do you have a picture of the felted clogs? They sound like something I would be interested in making!

I would like to join this KAL, I have started to knit my daughter a floor length Faux fur coat. The cast on for the back is 211 stitches. Its a pattern in knitting magazine I think nov or dec 2005. Knitting six row takes me nearly an hour.
the weight is a bit of a strain on my hands so am waiting for my Knit Picks Options to arrive. Have so far managed 18 rows. I will be doing lots of other projects in between in the hope that I will not become bored.

Welcome and I am glad you joined in. What a nice gift you will be knitting a coat wow!! I have a pattern for a crochet coat but all I have done to it is looked at it. I might try to knit a coat or maybe a jacket if I can find a cute pattern. Keep us posted on how things are going. Post pictures if you can.
Happy knitting!!!!

When my Carpal Tunnel settles down I'd love to join in. I need to start now so I can really get some things done and enjoy the season and the knitting I do for the season. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I'll be able to knit for more than just a row or two... It's so hard to stop that sometimes I just forgo it altogether...

I hope your hands and arms feel better soon, so you can join in this KAL. I imagine as we get closer and closer to Christmas it will get a lot busier. I haven't worked on my coat for the last week. there are just to many distraction on this forum (so many other projects that I also want to do).
