KAL is short for knit-a-long for all those not in the know. I've just joined my first one and I'm so excited. I've been wanting to make myself a bag and I figured the best way to make sure it actually happens and gets finished is to join a group and have some fun with it. I'm waiting for my book to arrive and then I'll decide which bag to make. There are several I'm interested in so we'll have to wait and see. Maybe I'll make them all and give some for Christmas gifts.
Just thinking, I should really start taking pictures of my knitting projects for posterity. I guess it never occurred to me before.
