Summertime Cardi KAL - AKA We Have No Idea What We're Doing!
Okay, I am going to start this cardigan as a gift for my mom for mother's day. Anyone want to join me? I bought yarn from this site called Filatura Lanarota Royal Linen in Blush. I am pretty sure that yarn is discontinued, so I bought a lot!

I will start as soon as my yarn arrives. I am very nervous as this project is definitely kicking it up a notch compared to what I have done before.

Okay, there's been a lot of comments about how hard this looks. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING either, so don't be afraid. I have learned so much from the projects I have tried that have pushed me past the limits of my skills. Come on, join me!

That's a beautiful sweater! I'm already doing the sweater KAL right now, but I think this might be a bit over my head at this point anyway. :rollseyes:

BTW..your yarn link to goes to a bunch of different yarns.

Ooops! I'll fix the link.

This is way over my head too, but that has been the only way I have learned so far, so I am going for it. I'll let you know how it goes.

The link it still the same. Maybe you should just tell us what you got.

Well, I have to make it, even though there aren't any takers for the KAL. I guess I'll be an expert by the time someone else can join. Now if only my yarn would ARRIVE!

The knitting experience is so interesting! I have had trouble on the EASIEST of patterns and then breezed through things that should be hard. I never know what will happen when I start a new pattern. I think I like that about knitting. It truly is an adventure.
