Purlewe has organized a Knitalong on Ravelry. The pattern is guernsey socks found on page 106 of The Knitter's Book of Yarn which is Clara's book.

The KAL thread on Ravelry is found here: Knitalong.

The thread is in the Fans of The Knitter's Book of Yarn group. If you are not a member of the group please join or if you don't wish to join you can still participate in the KAL and post as a guest of the group.

The start date is March 1.

Oh! Thanks for this info. I have the book, I have the pattern, I have the needles, I have the yarn. I'm not on Ravelry, but will happily KAL 'in absentia'.

That's great! Maybe you can start a sister KAL on KR for knitters who are not on Ravelry.

Actually, I decided to try for an invitation. The 4-day wait will give me a chance to get some of the first sock done!

I am loving this sock! I can't wait to see all the socks knit from the KAL.

My mother made me a homosexual.

I love the ones I made! The yarn wasn't the best choice, but, the pattern is great. You can see a picture in Ravelry or on Flickr.

I want to make another pair but have way too much OTN. I will check out the KAL to see all the pretty socks.

Hi All,

GTFC, I know you've found me on Ravelry now. I'm enjoying the KAL. I'm slow because I have other projects underway too, but I've finished 3 chart repeats for the leg now. There's a photo on my blog: http://knitsonthebus.blogspot.com. I just like the way the pattern feels when I work on it. Does that make any sense?

I love my first sock. I hope to get to the cuff this weekend.

I'm now on the gusset of my first Guernsey. And signed on to do the "Little Shells" socks KAL in April. And I'm making dishcloths...and a mitred scarf (KAL)....And "Jeff's Pub Sweater" (IK Spring 2009) for my son...and still working on my "Climbing Vines Pullover" (IK Winter 2008)...And I'm having a blast!
