My last FO of 2015 was a pair of socks in the colorway Shades of Portland that I purchased from another Raveler’s stash. They knit up in less than a week, and how I love the pastel hues, especially that mint green strip.

But three days into the new year and I’ve broken my resolution to go KAL-free. As I set about tidying the house, I felt shamed by all the yarn staring back at me. If I could just make one basket disappear….
So in reading through a few message boards I found a KAL that requires one pair of socks per month. That seems more manageable than last year’s 15 in 15, plus I can still work on expanding the knitting repertoire. Instead of 2016 being KAL-free, I’ve decided, in the name of stash-busting, to go KAL-lite. Here’s my January skein in the colorway Horse of a Different Color.
