"Sheep" is Just Another Word for "Knitter"

Just because it's so much fun to follow the herd, I'm joining the Tour de France Knit-along. My category? Yellow Jersey (ie indecision + uncertainty). Yeah, baby!

My project will be either Clessidra (for me) or Errol (for my son); if I can get Errol done before the July 21 book launch of HP7, it'll be Clessidra for sure. I know neither of these are very French, but the Clessidra pattern does feature wine in the photo ;) I like wine, and wine is often French, n'est-ce pas? Also, I did a semester in France during my sophomore year, making me almost sort of part French. So this KAL was a no-brainer.

Go join up by July 7! Knit and watch cute guys in tight shorts!

So glad you're doing it--bravo!!;)

Oh! Sounds like great fun. I will give it some serious consideration.

I want to make Clessidra - but a shortened version. Just haven't taken the time to figure out the necessary changes. So -- I'll be very interested in watching your take shape!!

I love the Clessidra pattern. I would love to sign up for another challenge but unfortunately work is getting in the way of all the fun things I want to do.

Glad you are joining the KAL! The yellow jersey has the most flexibility I think, for those of us with too much to do right now. :)
