Hi everyone!
I thought I'd say howdy and let you guys know about a knit-along!

I'm a beginner and met Gail, an experienced knitter through Ravelry.  We decided to do a knit-along on our blogs.  And of course, the more the merrier!  Now I hope this is okay, since most of the topics on this board seem to be knit-alongs WITHIN craftster.  I hope I'm not out of line here.

Anyway, we are going to be knitting the Miette cardigan.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/miette
It's cute, and free too!

You can see our intro blog posts here:

Gail is going to be doing lots of helpful walking-through for beginners!

Hope this doesn't come off as self promotional, but basically, I want as many people as possible to join, the more the merrier right?  Gail is going to be putting plenty of work into her posts and I want as many people as possible to benefit Smiley

I just love the online community there is around sewing and knitting/crochet, it's so supportive and nice Smiley  If you think you'd like to knit along, do join us!

Hmmm.. tempting... but this does look quite complicated for a beginner ( which I still think I am, even though I've tried a few things) ... I wonder if I can handle the instructions... Wink

i really wish i could knit along with you, however they didn't make the pattern in my size and i can't figure out the math to upsize said pattern(i am a beginner knitter Smiley ) . i am sure the ones you knit will be beautiful.  I look forward to seeing your completed work

Well, Gail is planning to do a walk through on how to figure out how to change your size.  I'm too small of a bust for it, so I have to change the pattern too.

I think it looks really hard for me too, but I am going to get all the help I need and do my best!  I'm sure with an expert's help, any beginner can make this work! Smiley

Well, we're into the knit-along!  We have a bunch of people joining in, so its really great! Gail has been doing tonnes of informative posts, and Ive been putting up my newbies perspective, and what Ive learned, so I really think anyone wanting to make their first cardigan will find loads of info and help Smiley
There is still time to join, as the time-frame is super loose, and people are at lots of different speeds and stages of progress.

If I can do it, being as green as I am, anyone can! Its really exciting Smiley

Here are the links to the knit-along posts:

Hi everyone!
I'm happy to hear some of you started yours!
And if you have any questions, visit either of our blogs, or get in touch.  We love to help!

Here is the finished cardigan!

I'm happy and proud!
And as a beginner, I know that any other beginner can do it, since I managed it!  You can do it, don't be afraid!

You can see more photos and information here at the blog post I made about the finished cardigan Smiley

Yay knitting!!

Wonderful, pinkcatflower!
And may I add, it looks awesome on you.
I still keep glancing at the instructions, but it is just too nice and summery for me to be picking up any knitting project... but the next fall approaches... Grin
