i can hardly put in words how excited i am to start the summer sweater knit along! see that pic above....that is my yarn!!!!!!!!!! squeal!!!! yep...yummy isn't it! it's been very, very, hard to not cheat and just cast on. after i did my swatch all i wanted to do was knit, knit, and knit! it's that gorgeous and really...my pics don't even do it justice. it screams summer to me and the tones are just scrumptious. i kinda just want to eat it...in a non weirdo way...lol.
|yarn: yellow label dk by tanis fiber arts in colorway pink grapefruit|
|pattern: something silver by veera valimaki|

there are also new topics in our ravelry threads this time round to keep us all organized. you'll find topics for your wip's, a gallery to show them off and also ones for your fo's too! i think it will make it a lot easier to follow along with all the chat going on in there. i hope you'll all chat away :) you'll also find some awesome moderators who help me to help you in our fun loving ravelry group. there is rebecca (nook), sandra (3pumpkinslittle), and kelly (CelticCastOn) - these gals are all avid and very savvy knitters. thanks for your help ladies! and if you're not already part of ravelry join in! it's free and seriously awesome! it's like facebook for knitters times ten! a huge resource and a great way to make dear friends :) but don't worry, you can still be part of the knit along even if you aren't on ravelry. instead of showing off your pics in our ravelry group you can add them to our flickr group! we all love seeing each other's handiwork!
