New for 2017!

I've started a couple of new projects for the new year!  Last year I participated in the Yarnathon from Eat.Sleep.Knit.  (The Carson Throw was part of that, as well as a bunch of other things I did last year.)  At midnight on New Year's Eve the new Yarnathon began with new teams and new KAL's and a new theme (Candy!)  I'll be competing with the Cocoa Cubs team this year!
The first quarter KAL is Melanie Berg patterns and I not only had ESK yarn in my stash, but I also had one of her patterns picked out to go with some of it.  I had no idea this would be a KAL for 2017, I just lucked out that I didn't cast on for it last year!  I'm doing Sunwalker in Malabrigo Mechita in Cereza (a dark red that reminds me of Madelinetosh's Tart colorway).  It will also be good for some Booster Club Badges!  This project is my new TV knitting because I can knit without paying too much attention to it.  I've knit two Melanie Berg patterns before (Drachenfels and On The Spice Market - both for Loopy Academy) and her patterns are fun but easy and give you very wearable finished objects.

I'm still sorting out this year's Yarnathon and figuring out what I'll do for the various KAL's, but I do know, since I'm a Cocoa Cub, I will be making some bears this year!
