Thanks for letting me join! And a nomination too.

Hearing about this group on pointy sticks (and possibly also on Irie knits, as I get not only very behind but also mixed up on my podcasts) I knew I had to find out how to be a member. And how lucky for me that a new knitalong is starting just at the same time!

As soon as I heard the name of this group, I thought how perfect, because I am about to begin a very sexy project which has been on my mental to-do list for quite some time now: the Hush Hush slip from the summer '04 sex-and-the-knitty issue . So this is my nomination for the KAL:

And yes, I admit it's non-busty, but so am I. As I am getting married this September in Sedona, I thought that the promise of wearing this at some point during the wedding weekend was the perfect excuse for me to get this on the needles. The yarn (shine from KnitPicks) is on its way as I type and I will be knitting it 'in secret' while my dh to be is away in San Francisco, which he will be often over the next while as he prepares to take over a new job there (and for us to relocate from Chicago). I will also have plenty of time, once we move in July, as I will be hanging around our new home looking for a break from the onerous tasks of job searching and wedding planning. I had already planned to do this as a kal of one, but it would be fun if it was a group project too.

I'm looking forward to being a part of this club, and for seeing what the final vote is for!

ohhh... now that is a sexy knit! I'm also non-busty too so I wouldn't mind doing a kal of 2, hehe, but as a group it would be more fun. I think I would do either a color like what they have or a light blue (which seems to be my favorite color lately)!

I have actually chosen to do it in a light pink - blush I think it's called - just because it seemed a really sweet color for this knit. I still haven't chosen the ribbons, though - just one more excuse to go to the craft store and browse!
