Heather Hoodie + Slanting Gretel = 2 Great KALs!

We Have Finished Objects!

I finally finished a knit-along on time, and so did a bunch of other people who knitted the Heather Hoodie Vest with me. Here's the evidence:

Kathleen's Hoodie    Tsbrzesny's Hoodie    NannyFly's Hoodie

DynaGirl's Hoodie

    SusanD's Hoodie

RjReid's Hoodie

Meanwhile, I'm holding steady on my record of NOT finishing on time with the second knit-along, the Slanting Gretel Tee (the official end of the Gretel KAL is 3/8, but there's really no chance I'll be done by then!). But some of my knit-along buddies have finished, and here are their gorgeous sweaters!

What Should We Knit Next?

I had a hard time choosing patterns for this next KAL—there are so many great choices for spring knitting! But I narrowed it down to four patterns that I think will appeal to everyone in some way, shape, or form.

The Bella Blouse by Norah Gaughan—This darling cap-sleeved top is made from two complimentary yarns. The decorative touches on the neck, sleeves, and hem really make this a show stopper. The Crosby Draped Vest by Teva Durham—Interweave is now selling Teva Durham Loop-d-Loop patterns in our pattern store! This cute vest is versatile, stylish, and flattering for many body types.
The Minimalist Cardigan by Ruthie Nussbaum—This sweater is perfect for spring; you can make it out of a warm-weather yarn and throw it on when you need that second layer. The Sidelines Top by Lou Shiela—I love the cable detail on this pullover; it gives such a nice hourglass shape! And the three-quarter-length sleeves are great for transitioning from cold weather to warm.

So please take the survey and help me decide which pattern to knit next! I'll announce the results on March 12th.

Now I have to go knit on my Slanting Gretel!
