Auditioning Knits

PalKal Auditions
I'm trying to figure out what I'll do for the PalKal this year. 

Was thinking of knitting the Lil' Miss Chelsea Bean by Jenn Sheelen. 

Also considering Breathing Space and True Friend by Veera Valimaki, using my ChileKnitz Pal Kal Yarn. 

I am also searching for something to make with my PalKal kit from Suburban Stitcher. 

Summer Tops
I am searching pretty hard for something to make with my Claudia Hand-Painted Contemplation yarn that's been in my stash for a while. I originally bought it to make the Linum Tee by Bristol Ivy.

Here are some of the things I'm considering:

Nesoi Tee by Miriam Felton

Notched Hem Tank Top by Purl Soho

Breeze by Joanna Rankin

Let me take you on a Knitscapade! Last weekend I visited my favorite not-so-local to me LYS, Black Mountain Yarn Shop. I fell off the wagon pretty hard but, no regrets!
