Over on the Doubleknit podcast group Erin and I are hosting a KAL called Spring Clean Your Queue. The idea originally was to get inspired to knit things that have been in your queue since last year or longer. I have items that date all the way back to 2007. The KAL has morphed into a reassessment of all those patterns sitting there waiting to be knit. I deleted so much I was able to cut my queue down from eight pages to three. The Medusa shawl I just finished came off of there. It was originally queued in June 2011.
Now I'm working on Brickless by Martina Behm. I queued it when it was first released in 2012. Then deleted it. Then put it back in October. I'm using some Hazel Knits Lively DK in Jam Session that I got at one of the trunk shows we've had at the shop. I only recently got it into my Ravelry stash so I don't know which year I bought it. This is a lovely nearly mindless knit that is still interesting enough to keep me from nodding off while I knit.
