We’re two weeks into the Coastal Knits KAL and everybody seems to be getting along great with their projects. There have been a couple of snags in getting the patterns going, but overall these are the easiest patterns and everyone is zipping along.
I did my gauge swatch like I should and the 10 1/2 that the Rocky Coast Cardigan suggests is just right. Knitting with a 10 1/2 goes so fast. The cable pattern on this sweater is only 6 stitches and 8 rows. So easy to memorize! I love the Cascade Venezia as well. It is so soft, and easy to work with. I’m hoping to finish up the raglan increases this weekend and then I’ll really be moving along.
I said in my last post, that I’d post a schedule for the KAL, but have decided with so many different patterns going on, that wouldn’t be fair. I’ve just divided my pattern into weekly segments so that I can be finished by the last day of the KAL, April 29. I have to be finished because there are so many other projects calling me! And, I can’t wait for that first cool spring morning when I’ll be sporting my new Rocky Coast Cardigan.
Hope to see some of you in the shop on Sunday. If you can’t make it to the shop, please drop a line and let us know how your project is coming!
