This is a prelim post to see how much interest there is.

is anyone here interested in a Tudor Roses KAL beginning the end of May? Knit any pattern from the book for the KAL. Marina, Carrie K and I are already committed, and I think it will be fun. I'll be setting up a KAL, either on Blogger or Yahoo next week sometime, so everyone can start choosing patterns and gathering yarn.
Caveat: You will have to own the book to participate, there won't be any sharing of patterns due to copyright issues. Fortunately, there are lots of copies of this book still available at reasonable pricing, both on Ebay and I believe Jannette at Rare Yarns still has some.

My biggest problem is deciding whether to start with Eliz I or Jane Seymour.

leave a comment here if you'd like an invite when I set up the KAL, or leave a comment on my blog, or email me.

Interested, but no way I can start that soon. Would be closer to the end of June or early July before I can get going on this one.

I'm thinking of doing Elizabeth I, but I'm not sure what yarn to use. Have to look in my stash first. I have a wedding to go to in October. Maybe a wool/cotton blend? How is everyone else doing?

Still in the planning stage. I've decided on Henry VIII using yarn from Jamieson & Smith. Still deciding on the colours. And I have to finish a couple of other projects, Luskentyre and Queen Anne's Lace before I'll allow myself to begin that.

Bummer. I'm VERY interested in this era, and particularly in knitting something in the genre. But the book is (at least) $120 on Amazon, being out of print! Anyone know where it can be had for a reasonable price?

Julie,
right now, $80.00 is the reasonable price.Jannette has a copy on ebay, so you can get it from her, if youwant.

Thanks, Sherry,

Compared to what I've seen, yes, $80 is reasonable. I've put this on my watch list on ebay. Right now, $80 is something I don't have. So I have to hope it's not grabbed up in the next couple of weeks!

Your welcome Judy,
yes, it kills me to see 25.$ on the book and pay 80.00, but an investment well worth it, as I refuse to pay 200 for one!!(as the others are going that way) there are a few sweaters in there, plus the gorgeous pics also, as I love that time in history. and yes, I can't purchase the yarn yet for the sweater :-)
