The 'Puffs are doing a KAL!

And I'm in! They're doing Wendy Bernard's Dream Swatch head wrap. It's one that I printed out a while ago, and put in my binder of "To-Knit Items". The binder has since multiplied into two binders, but that's neither here nor there, lol.

So anyway, the KAL starts Friday, and ends around the 16th-just in time for the next round of Quidditch!

I'm going to use Fingering Weight, while the pattern calls for DK. I want to use one of my new Dexter yarns for this... Bay Harbor Butcher, to be specific. Here it is, in all it's glory:

So, I'll be knitting it on size 3 needles, and can't wait to CO! I'll be knitting through the party on Friday. Woo Hoo!

I just started watching Dexter when they showed it on CBS - how great is it?? Did the knife come with the yarn? That's pretty awesome.

Are you following the pattern and just using smaller sized needles? I have that great yarn I got from Calliope.. but it's fingering also. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Nope, the knife didn't come with the yarn, I just thought it was cute to pose it with it... DH wanted me to wrap the yarn partly in saran wrap...LOL

I'm using size 2 needles. The project is not as wide as the sample, but I like it better this way... It's a better width for my head!

I'm using size 3 needles. My wrap isn't as wide as the one Wendy did either.. it's about 3 1/2 inches instead. I'm so glad you posted about using fingering weight yarn..I like the yarn I ended up with SO much better.
