I know there have already been KAL's for these out there on the web, but I'm way too late to join any of them.... I'm dying to knit:<br><a href="http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter05/PATTstarsky.html" target="_blank">starsky</a><br><br>
OR this...love this!<br><a href="http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-026" target="_blank">simple knitted bodice</a>

Wow, I really like the 2nd one! I usually like body-hugging tops, but I'm preggo now so I'm not that much into knitting stuff for myself at the moment. Though with some modification, it might make a cute maternity top....hmm.

scroll down to a post from Marnie (curly purly)...the post says the pattern is going to be available soon and you'll be able to choose regular/maternity/nursing sweater - I've been stalking her site...I even sent her an email, but no word yet. i LOVE this one.

I have this one skein of gorgeous worsted merino that I want to make something for myself with. I'd join a KAL for that.

I'm in the same spot! I'd love a rather quick KAL, hence the one skein being perfect!

Cool, I can't find a maternity top pattern at all! But now that I think about it, I really need to knit more stuff for the new baby. I was planning on spinning a ton soon (doing a soap/lotion marathon for another week first) before my belly gets in the way. Then knitting more baby stuff, then maybe other misc stuff if I still have time. I'm thinking of the baby yoda <a href="http://dogsstealyarn.com/yoda.htm" target="_blank">http://dogsstealyarn.com/yoda.htm</a> , I have fiber for that on my to-spin list.

OH YES! I'd do that one.... I cannot wait to pick up that issue - I'm working a sit & stitch at my LYS on Saturday and cannot wait to get it! I've been dying for a wrap top. (I just called - they don't have the issue yet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> )<br><br>
do you have it already? what kind of yarn does it call for?

I would love to join in, but I don't have any suggestions on what to do...I'm more of a follower, I guess <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> .

I'd like to join along <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"><br>
I would prefer a somewhat smaller KAL - maybe a one skein project like Megan suggested?

I am another one skein person. I have no suggestions, though. I can't knit clothes for myself - too big. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> It would cost me a fortune in yarn.
