Knitting 911 - Summer Sweater Knit Along!!

we've got a winner and we've got a new summer project to do together! i've chosen the "effortless cardigan by hannah fettig" for my summer sweater. knitting isn't just for the winter ladies! we can knit all year round! in fact this weekend i was just at the beach in the sunshine knitting away on my legwarmers. who says we have to put our sticks away cause the sun is out? knitting is an all year past time in our house. it's easily transportable, it's fun, relaxing, soothing, and stress relieving...all things a mother on the go needs.

reader gynnab suggested we do a knit a long together on last week's post where you all so graciously helped me decided which sweater to whip up this summer. i got super excited and after chatting with some of you we all decided a knit along would be the perfect project for this summer! everyone can pick the sweater of their choice that's the most flattering for your body type and we'll all knit them together...virtually of course :) let's all spread the love of knitting through any season and make some summer sweaters together. the perfect cardi or pullover can be the perfect touch for a stroll on the beach or lounging in the backyard for a bbq. throw it on with shorts, a skirt or as a wrap over your summer dress.

i'll be putting together some info on the KAL and get things ready for us all to join in. i wanted to give you all a heads up so you can choose your sweater pattern and get your yarn stash ready and i also wanted to get your feedback on when you would like to start the KAL. i was thinking mid june?? what do you ladies think? is that enough time to get yarn and get patterns ready? i'll whip up some fun buttons for us to sport on our blogs (if you have one) and the KAL will take place in our luvinthemommyhood ravelry group.

what pattern are you planning on making for the KAL? do you have any suggestions you'd like to see included for the KAL? what date do you prefer as a start date? happy knitting ladies! i'm so excited to make my very first sweater! it's about time....14 years or so is a long time to wait..haha.
