Did I mention I like KAL's?

I listen to podcasts when I walk Jake in the morning and when I go back and forth to work.  One of the ones I listen to is 'The Knitmore Girls'.  In October they started a KAL for Cassidy by Bonne Marie Burns  I started my Cassidy in November.  I'm using Vintage by Berroco and really like how it is knitting up.  I had to put it aside so I could finish up my Christmas knitting and started working on it again in January.  I now have the back finished as well as the sleeves. 

I am now feeling very "pretty" as Jasmine and Gigi, the Knitmore Girls, would say after almost getting the two fronts done.  I was so excited to be at the shoulders ready to bind off the fronts when I realized I forgot to decrease for the neckline.  Now I get to frog two inches of knitting. Yes I'm feeling very pretty!!!

As for the other KAL (see previous post) my Girl Friday is coming along nicely.  My back is totally done and I put it on ribbon instead of binding off.  The fronts were started Wednesday as I waited to get the oil changed in my car.  I have about two inches done. My goal is to stay ahead of the Saturday ladies. Several of the ladies participating in the KAL stopped by Filati's this week and they have been very impressive with their dedication to getting past the armholes.
