Not too long ago, feministmama posted this thread
about the waterlily top
from Interweave Knits Spring 2006 magazine
. I immediately headed to my LYS to find the magazine and look at the pattern, and then looked up the yarn on the internet, only to discover the disappointing price tag
of nearly US$27/hank. Not to let that get to me, I trolled around eBay, finally discovering this yarn
from this seller
, which is sold in groups of three and in many different colors. I bought some in red, and received it on Saturday.
From all the interest when the original thread was posted, I thought there might be enough people interested in a KAL for this top. More people may be interested with the link to that eBay seller (I hope). This will be my most ambitious project to date: the first on circular needles actually knit in the round, the first project with sleeve shaping, hell, my first sweater of any kind, the first yarn that I need a swift (or a patient partner) to help me wind it into a ball, the first project with a provisional cast-on, etc. There are many other firsts in this project. I'd love some company.
