Summer Sweater Knit-along Plans
I’m so excited about the beginning of the Summer Sweater KAL! I had a million things on the
needles in June, but now I’m down to six. This is really good, my friends. I expect 2 will be off the needles by the time I return from vacation. Of course, all of this maturity has given me the urge to go insane planning more projects than I can possibly manage for this KAL. And planning more road tripping knitting than will comfortably fit in my car. And pretending I’ll have room for two projects in my backpack on our hike.
Why don’t you hop a ride on the Crazy Train and pretend with me. All images are linked to their ravelry pages so you can go a little nuts too.
There’s Journey, which may be finished before the KAL begins
Heritage will be what I begin with the group on Cast On day. I’m knitting it in a tonal gray.
The Feya cardigan, by Amy Christoffers, will be my second cast on for the KAL. This totally makes me think of high school.
Speaking of high school, Libby Jonson’s Timely makes me think of cardigans I wore then, too. I want a navy and white striped version.
I’m dying to try knitting a fingering weight yarn held together with a lace weight mohair, like in Soirée
The Sourcebook Chunky Cardigan needs no flowery description.
Then, I want a Quadrillion, but not a regular Quadrillion. It has to have a neckline exactly like Alaina’s (below). Luckily she and other raveler’s have detailed notes.
Then there’s the classic Boxy sweater by Joji, the v-neck version.
Again, I want to copy Isabell.
What will you be knitting for your Summer Sweater?
