Peer Pressure

I do try to start New Years off on the right foot. But I fail miserably at resolutions, so I like to give myself ‘guidelines’ at the beginning of every year instead.

Last year I discovered I’m terribly bad at playing along with KALs or Knit-alongs… Cookie A Sock club… Still Light…. Call it weak, but I just hate feeling left behind in a challenge. So I said to myself, NO MORE KALs, I’m staying strong despite the fact that EVERY Knitter I know is participating in the yet to begin Ysolda Arrow KAL.

There’s also an element of risk involved in the challenge, what if I just don’t like the shawl? I guess that’s supposed to be the fun of it. That and you get to make choices and decisions along the way, so much so there’s 32 different shawl combinations possible at the end of the clues. It’s like a ‘choose your own adventure’ story that I once loved to read as a kid. I’m afraid I’ll end up with a shawl called Frankenstein… If Ysolda can pull it off, I’ll be in awe.

But I’m still not giving in… or am I?

No, definitely not. It’s going to be fun to watch from the sidelines for once. And… if I change my mind later… I can still knit the shawl in one of it’s 32 possibilities.
