FKAL – that means “flash knit along” and there’s just enough time to do the ESK FKAL for Escarpment Cowl (a free pattern) which needs to be finished by June 1,  before Camp Loopy starts  on June 1 and I need to concentrate on those Camp projects.

This cowl is super easy.  I actually pulled fabric from my stash for it – yes I know you are amazed at that! 🙂

The FKAL schedule is start May 25 and finish by Noon EST on June 1.   So as soon as it hit May 25 in the EST zone, I cast on and knit until the week hours of the morning while watching a new series on Prime I had been waiting for and playing that binge watching game of … I’ll just watch one more episode,  okay one more episode,  just one more episode…  Then when I finally did go to bed I still woke up at 5 whatever AM like normal, even though I took off work for a nice 4-day holiday weekend.   So what’s a person to do who is on vacation and wakes up that early but make the coffee and then go prop up in bed to knit for another 3-4 hours.  The only thing better would have been someone to

bring me my coffee refills so I didn’t have to go get them myself and someone to make me some fresh muffins or something else for breakfast. 🙂


Now it’s off to the sewing room to continue my cleaning.  I finally got around to toting home from work a large box I had delivered there because it had to be signed for which contains some Ikea pegboard system stuff which I’m anxious to get up on the wall in the sewing room so I can organize all the stuff to go on it.
