I know that there has been a lot of talk about starting a KAL for this BEAUTIFUL cardigan by indie-knitter (found here -> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160440.0 ) but as far as I know, no one has started a KAL for it yet.

Who's with me?

I'm with you!

I'm fact, I've just started on the 1st sleeve.  Haven't managed to take pics as yet, as I have to wait for the batteries to recharge.  It's looking really good though

I'm in, though I have already started; I just have the sleeves to go, and have had no problems with the pattern. I hate seams, so I wish I had done the body in one peice until the armholes, but a 3 needle bindoff at least eliminated the shoulder seam.

I am using a black mohair blend with a bit of gold sparkle in it that I thrifted a little while ago. It doesn't show the twisted rib all that well, but apart from that it is ok.

i was wondering when this was going to start!  i have a few too many sweaters planned to start this anytime soon, but i really want to spy on you all and see how it comes out!

I'm waiting to see if I win an ebay bid for someone's stash (it's a huge amount of yarn, I'm pumped) before I go out and buy my yarn.  I'm thinking about using the Lamb's Pride worsted that she recommended, but I've never used, nor felt the texture before.  Does anyone else have experience with it? Should I use that?

lamb's pride is really fuzzy!  i did a felted bag with it and would get whatever i was wearing covered with fuzz when i was knitting!  i haven't knit with cascade 220 yet, but i've bought some and am in love!  it's also on sale on the webs anniversary sale!

OH my gosh I'm so excited to see how everyone's turns out! I really like Lamb's Pride, but it's not really exactly like the stuff I used. Mine was knit in two-ply heavy worsted 90/10 wool and mohair, and Lamb's Pride was the closest match I could think of...Cascade 220 sounds like it would work well too!

I am all over this cardigan like a white girl on an NBA player! It's gorgeous! I bought some lion brand wool-ease for it today- dark rose heather. We'll see how it goes.

Indie-knitter, would you mind letting us know the cast-on method you used?

I've got most of the back knit up so far, and am using some cheapy Merit stuff in a pretty pink that I had lying around in my drawers. So far, so good.

Squeeeeeal! I can't wait to see how everyone's turns out. the only this that's stopping me from starting is is a) I have to finish my Cherry cardi and b) I've never crocheted and I'm slightly intimidated by it.

Oh, and PS -

I am all over this cardigan like a white girl on an NBA player!
