Well, these are crazy times.
It’s been over a month since my husband and I locked ourselves in our apartment. I remember when back in February, he had started to buy extra canned food “just in case”. Now we live in the epicenter of a pandemic.
But hey, I’ve been trying to look at the bright side. We’re both healthy, able to work from home, and I have my many fiber hobbies to keep my mind busy.
I know it’s been hard for everyone, some people more than others, so I consider myself lucky. And as part of that positivity I’ve been trying to put in the world, I decided it would be fun to hold a Knit along (or KAL) featuring my most summer-ready pattern the Astoria Knit Top.
I’ve been meaning to re-knit this one for a while and also to host a KAL for the first time ver, so why not now?
Join me in this #AstoriaTopKAL adventure, that begins today!
Yesterday I began by frogging (unraveling, completely undoing) my original Astoria Top. Like I mentioned, I’ve been meaning to make it a bit longer, so I can wear it more like a regular crop. It’s a great lounge top too!
Today I will begin casting on. Things will go pretty quick after that! Will you join this KAL? If you are, make sure to tag your progress with #AstoriaTopKAL for me to follow along and share it. Can’t wait to see everyone’s tops!
