Tuesday is (supposed to be) knitalong day

Well, a busy work week and relatives visiting meant I didn't get to do much of a roundup the other day. Which is ok because most of us are just getting started. Chelle is swatching, Jenny is having stitch count issues (Jenny, are you on our list here? Do you have a URL?), and I am about three inches into the twisted stockinette.

A few administratve details

1. We've got a button on the sidebar. Take it, store it, use it--you know the drill. We're still open to new buttons, though--I know my strong points and graphic design isn't one of them.

2. Late starters are always welcome. In fact, I'm still swatching and probably won't start until mid-October, and whatever I don't finish by early November will have to wait until early December. I'll be lucky if I finish my Cinxia by the end of 2005.

3. Katie and I would like to do a regular Tuesday round-up. I'll try to keep an eye on everyone's blogs, but it would be even easier for us if you could post updates here or to our e-mail addresses.

Welcome from the other co-host

I just swatched some doubled coned silk chenille and hit gauge perfectly. I've got 3 lbs, so it should be enough. But do I really want to do this in black? I think I may swatch up the same yarn in a sand color and put it up to a vote.

A little bit (and I do mean a little bit) about our patron goddess.

Welcome to the KAL!

Welcome to the Cinxia Knitalong

Moze and I will be your hostesses. Just leave a comment if you'd like to join us...it's ok if you aren't getting started immediately. We are a low-pressure knitalong.

Cinxia - you know you want to

Hey. So Moze and others from the Knittyboard suggested a Cinxia Knitalong. I figured I'd set up a blog - we'll figure out who's hosting the knitalong later (I'm happy to, but don't want to step on anyone's toes).

I'm using Berroco Softwist Bulky, in Pitch Black - have just finished the slip stitch trim and starting the twisted stockinette.

Any other takers?
