Wow, I am overwhelmed by the response to the Odessa KAL, I think I have Kathy to thank for posting about the KAL on her blog. I have been enjoying reading your blogs and getting to know you, I hope that as the KAL progresses, I get to know more bloggers out there ;).
I saw some of you have already started on the project. Check out Aija's hat, I love the effect the color yarn has with the beads.
Speaking of beads, Grumperina has posted a great tutorial on stringing the beads for the project. I was able to find some inexpensive beads at my local craft store, no glass beads, but they will suffice to learn the new technique.
Scout has organized a Team Odessa for all of us to join in the great excitement of the 2006 Knitting Olympics. Since I will be making items for the Dulaan project, I think I will sneak one in there--probably beadless though.
Rowan Cashsoft in baby blue--a hat for my Mom.
Baby Cashmerino-a beadless hat for little Nyah
Jo-Ann Sensations Tesoro Yarn--100% wool--incredibly soft and it is machine washable ;)-a hat for me (maybe)
Don't forget to take the button, or make a button, here are a few choices--thank you Denise for creating two of them for us.
And don't forget, Scout's:
