Using a different method to what you normally use KAL
I am not sure if this counts as a KAL I apologise if it does not.

For the last six months I have been telling myself the next knitting project that I start I am going to use it to learn the Continental Method of knitting, but I never do.

I was wondering if anybody would like to join me in a KAL and knit something using a different method to that they usually use. I had the idea of making a scarf, hat and gloves/mittens set, as they would be short projects and people could do whatever style they wanted but I am open to ideas.

Let me know what you think

Sounds like a great idea, but, I'm sorry to say that that was what we did for our Aug kal, so, I'm not sure how many people will want to do it again. Still, a great idea!!!

I did the same thing you did. I was an english knitter, and kept saying I wanted to learn conti knitting and I finally did (about a year ago now) and I must say, I love, love it! Once you get started it's really fun. I watched Amy's videos a few times and knit along with her, then I started on a small project .... although, I switched back and forth from conti knitting to english for a few months, so my tension wasn't really good until I decided to stick with conti knitting.
I wish you lots of luck, it is loads of fun

I never got around to doing the Aug. challenge because I had so many things that needed to get done for gifts. Sadly, I still do and am afraid to try & learn Conti on something I want to give away. kwim? One of these days I'll give it a whirl, though.

Thank you for the encouragement Rebecca, and thank you Hildie for the link. It looks like you had lots of fun doing the Aug Challenge. Jamadian's scarf is wonderful. Just what I need, something to get me started.

Knitaddict this is not going to be short project, so please join in when you have a chance it will be good to have you along. I have two jumpers and another scarf on some needles and I will carry on using English for those. I had not thought of it before until I read the Aug KAL, it is good to work both sides of the brain so really this KAL is for anybody who wants to give their brain some exercise.

I think I am going to do an Angus - angular scarf http://www.smallknits.com/angus%20angular%20scarf.htm but with 4.5mm needles.

The Loopa sounds a great idea. The more the merrier.

By the way what does CT stand for.
