Knittin DLight

I am planning to knit the Slouchy Cardigan from "Greetings from Knit Cafe" in late summer. A photo is on my blog: http://mohairdreams.typepad.com/photos/wish_list/slouchy_cardigan.html The sweater is knit in Twisted Sisters Avarice but I'm looking at some substitutes like Misti Pima Cotton/Silk or Knit Picks Andean Silk.

Any interest in a KAL?

Love the front hemline! And I would like to do a hooded, buttonless cardy. I'll go see if I can track down the book at Chapters and have a look at the pattern. What gauge yarn is it calling for?

RoseM
p.s. FYI - there's errata for this cardy: http://www.knitcafe.com/bookcorrections.html

Ok ladies - I can't get too excited until I know the suggested gauge of that sweater. If there's something workable in my stash - then I'm in.

Could someone who has the book/pattern check on the gauge pls? Looks dk fuzzy (I'm outta luck) or maybe worsted (then I'm ok).

Thanks.

Thanks Sherry! Yeah - looks like I'm in. Can give my stashed Kureyon a try.

Thanks Courtney for tip re Amazon. I'll check my Michaels and Chapters and if they don't have it in, I'll order it from Amazon.ca

I'm so happy to see some interest in this KAL. I am working on setting up the blog and will post a link as soon as it is done. Let's plan on starting August 1 so everyone has time to work on their summer knits. Sherry, thanks for posting the gauge information. In looking for some substitute yarns, I came across Blue Sky Melange and Elsebeth Lavold Angora, the later of which is on sale at WEBS. Stay tuned!!

I don't know what's going on with the link. I changed the photo so that may have changed the link. Here is the link again: http://mohairdreams.typepad.com/photos/wish_list/slouchy_cardi.html If that doesn't work, you go to my blog and find my Wish List photo album on the left side of the page. It is in the album.

Deena - I love your blog! I think the slouchy cardigan is perfect and am going to try to find that book today. If I can, then I am in! I am lucky enough to have some time right now and my favorite article of clothing is cardigans (the slouchier the better, lately).

OK - I even made the trek to the Knit Cafe (or should I say "pilgrimage") especially to buy that book and soak in the good knitting karma. I fell in love with the polo sweater and got everything to make that. Now I have decided that I'd better wait until my skills catch up to my desires. I am definitely in for the slouchy cardigan. I am going to get the yarn today! I can hardly wait.

Cute cardigan! I won't join right now because I have too many things started as it is. But I'd like to see pictures of all of yours when you are done!

The KAL site is finally up, http://slouchycardikal.blogspot.com This is my first group blog so bear with me. See the site to be added to the group. Feel free to join if you are working on any other patterns from "Greetings from Knit Cafe" as well.

It would also be fun to start a Greetings from Knit Cafe knitalong. There are lots of items in the book that I plan on making. If anyone is interested in that, let me know. I am currently working on the skirt from the front cover.
