2012 – More SAL Than You Can Shake a Stick At

Well, my title may be a bit of hyperbole, but it sure feels like I’ll be taking part in a lot of SAL that start today.

First up is Geeky Heather’s Theme-a-licious.

This month’s theme is Jardin, which is garden for those of you who might be French impaired. My project of choice is Egypt Garden by Chatelaine. (Terrible pictures today since it has been raining and grey all day.)

Egypt Garden will also be one of my focus pieces for Measi’s WIPocalypse for this month. I’ll also be working on my WIPs of TW’s Gingerbread House and Bargello Basics as part of WIPocalypse. And, they will be doing double duty as part of my personal project of a small TW finish a month.

Bargello Basics by Teresa Wentzler (WIP)

I’m a little unsure of Bargello Basics. I am using DMC cotton instead of wool (because of my allergy) on 18 count canvas. I don’t really like the coverage I’m getting. So, this, along with her crewel piece, may be a TW I miss out on.

Lastly, I’ll be taking part in a KAL of the lovely Narnia Shawl by Lily Go. And the yarn I use for it will count as part of my Pre-Process-Stashdown goals. So, I may be busy and have lots planned, but nearly everything is doing double duty. And, it will all help me use up some of my stash and get me some lovely finished projects.

    Lovely projects and best of luck with them this month.

  4. LOL!! I love the post title! Your Egypt Garden is looking lovely (even if it was a grey day). And I am fascinated by the colours of the gingerbread house! I just went and looked at the photo on Teresa’s site, and the colours look much paler…I really like the bright ones in your WIP! Can’t wait to see how that progresses. I agree with the comment about perle cotton…or even better, soie perlee!
