Knit alongs/ swaps etc.
Ok, I have found that whenever I visit someone elses blog, they are always doing a KAL, swap, etc. How do you all ever find all of these in time to get entered?? I never seem to stumble onto them until after it is too late.

Help a girl out. I want to be part of all the fun too!!

I've just made a habit of clicking on "view posts since last visit" every time I come to the board.

I do that too, but a lot of the things that people are participating in aren't discussed here. Things like the Mystery shawl KAL, I had never heard of until I found it on someone's blog. I want to do those things too *whining and stomping my feet now*, LOL.

Do you mean KALs that are done here, as part of KH, or off-site KAL, like Project Spectrum, Secret Pal 8? I would imagine the off-site KALs are found by googling the pattern name and seeing what comes up.

Project Spectrum is sponsored by Lolly. There are lace KALs and stashbusting KALs.

I would say google away to see what you can find!

I googled knit alongs and found this list for 2006 kal's.
Perhaps it's just me...I'm more comfortable doing a swap type of thing here, with people that I know...I've been burned a bit doing it with very anonymous people....and I don't mean to reflect badly on any of these off KH swaps, I'm sure that they are great, that was just my experience, and my 2 cents .

It should appear at the top of the first fourms page, on the upper right hand corner. (I hope this helps!)
