Calla Tank
Hi all,

I am thinking I will be starting to knit http://www.magknits.com/Apr06/patterns/calla.htm from Magknits.com and was wondering if anyone wanted to do a knit along? I am using Butterfly Super 10 (within my price range) and am using 3 skiens.

I have already cast on and worked the 8 foundation rows of ribbing before the actual pattern starts. I am planning to continue with the rest May 1 (or shortly there after, depending on the time it takes to finish the scarf I am working on for my monthers b-day).

Is anyone intersted? This would be a fun project for more than one person.

I'm interested!! I was seriously considering the Design Your Own Tank KAL, but now I'm not so sure, since I'm basically trying to find stitch patterns that resemble Calla. It's probably easier just to knit Calla. :thinking:

Yay!! I am so glad to have someone else doing this with me. I know there are a lot of people doing the tank design KAL, but I figured that maybe there might be 1 or 2 people interested in or already doing Calla that it would be a good idea to do a small KAL.

I wanted to do the design your own tank too since that sounds uber cool, but I had already set my mind on doing the Calla tank and bought the supplies for it.


I plan on starting as close to the beginning of May as possible. I just have to finish my mom's scarf first.

I am so glad to have someone else working on this with me!!

I am willing to join in too!! And I think I will use the Butterfly cotton, or I think I may have some other stuff I got on sale. We will see.

I have seen this patterns before and have wanted to try it. I have always been about substance in my knitting....none of this stocking stitch numbness!!!

K

Edited to add that starting at the beginning of may is perfect cause I need to finish a few projects too!!

Beginning of May works for me, too, since I don't have any yarn yet and I have a couple projects to finish up, too.
Guess this means I get to SHOP!

Just an update for those who are KAL with me. I have finished the scarf that I was working on and have cast on, done the first few rows of ribbing that the pattern calls for and am now working on the body of the tank. I have frogged it back to the ribbing 4 times now because I keep screwing up the charts, but I think that I have the hang of it now. I think that because the charts are on different pages its tough to get into the rythm. I have since taped the charts onto the same page along with the stitch key so I don't make any more mistakes, LOL.

As well, just a small hint, I figured out that you have to purl the yo stitches on the WS.

Can't wait for everyone else to start too!
