The Caftan Knit-A-Long and props to a friend!

Hey y’all! Good Sunday morning to you. What have you been up to this weekend? Me? Well…. the most miraculous thing has happened! I finally figured out how to do those silly (but o-so-useful) weblink things that all those professional bloggers do. My good friend Karen from over at The Tygerlily just taught me how via our facebook pages! Karen ROCKS at all things knitted – she makes IN-SANE bags. She also makes beautiful daily organizers, and has branched out in to iPad covers, using beautiful fabric combinations. Please go and check out her blog – not only can you purchase her custom-made goodies, but see them being created. (FUN!)

OK…. So…. On to my Knit-a-Long!

We will be making this fabulous Kaftan Pullover Sweater by Norah Gaughan. The suggested yarn is no longer available, so we (and by “we” I mean my mom, because she is good like that) emailed Berroco, and asked for alternatives. They emailed back ASAP – which was really cool, but I think it is more a reflection of how much yarn my mom buys from them than anything else… lol – and gave us some options for alternate yarns. We chose Comfort in a Worsted weight. You can certainly choose your own yarn, but this is a fabulous nylon/acrylic that feels wonderful to knit with, and is only $6.50 per skein (making this a $55-$70 sweater that can be washed and dried!).

If you are interested in joining our knit-a-long, feel free to hop right on! You can download the pattern in an instant via the link above, for only $5.50, grab your yarn, swatch it up and let’s go! As I mentioned before, this will be a leisurely paced knit. So, let’s get going, and knitting together. This week we will be casting on and knitting the first 8 inches.

Questions? Comments? Feel free to leave them, and I will get right back to you.

Happy knitting!!!!!!!
