What the HK is on Viki's Needles?

My knitting streak is continuing. And while I didn't finish my second pair of socks for the January/February Knitalong, I did make some very good progress. I've very pleased with how my Ode to Frogs and the Pond are turning out. They look so cheerful in the club colour Flicker.
 
Progress on these socks will continue, but with the completion of one KAL it was time to launch a new KAL. Our March/April KAL is a theme KAL. Our theme this time is Tribute. Participants can knit (or crochet) any pattern named after a person, humanoid, animal or creature, real or imagined. You can find more information and join in here.
 
Naturally, I had to cast on immediately. My choice for this KAL? Old Joe by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee aka the Yarn Harlot.


This pattern feels right, like I've come full circle now, as it was through Stephanie's blog that I found Hazel Knits yarn over five years ago.

I'm knitting my Old Joe's in the club colour Sedge. I'm really liking how these are turning out so far. The colour almost looks as if it glows from within.


I've also finished my latest design, but more about that after the pattern is written up and ready to go, hopefully early next month.

Later this week, we will be hosting a stop on a blog tour. Come back and check it out!
