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|
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!
|Artful Soul's Tee||Double Vertigo's Tee||Kiwiyarns's Tee||SJC's Tee|
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!
