My Introduction and Yarn Choice..

Howdie : )

My name (incase you haven't guessed by now) is Kim, and I've been dreaming of this sweater since October when I saw it in a magazine ad durring a trip to my favorite yarn store.. Since then I have been enamoured with the very idea of this sweater.. I just had to have it!

I don't know when I will be casting on, but I will tell you that I have my yarn and my pattern and it shouldn't be too long.. All I have to wrestle with is the fact that I have another sweater that is dangerously close to becoming a UFO. Finishing it wouldn't take too terribly long, and it would free up some guilt.. lol.


After investigating some options.. and finding out that I actually can knit with wool(!!), I settled with Aurora 8.. and got Color 20, which is dark teal.. and soooo pretty.. I think it'll do great with this sweater..

I'm excited to get started.. a little scared.. and looking forward to picking out some great buttons!

Whose Got a Button? We've Got a Button!

It may not be the best button in the world.. (and I would love to see a better one.) but I think it'll do for now.

Jumping In With Both Feet


I know there isn't much here now, but I'm hoping that soon this will be a flourishing KAL. This is my first time hosting one and I hope it goes well. If you're working on (Or planning to work on) the Travelling Cables Cardigan by Karabella Yarns feel free to email me and join the KAL!

This pattern is very intimidating for me for a number of reasons and I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. This is the perfect reason to have a KAL where knitters can support eachother and help eachother if they need it.

So.. If you're interested.. Please join!
