Green Gable anyone?
I cast on Green Gable tonight and wondered if anyone wants to join me! I'm using Craft, which is from the Vickie Howell collection. It is 65% organic cotton and 35% milk fiber. It has such a nice feel and drape to it. If you look at the link, you can see the color I am using - it is Todd #767. I love that it is top down, in the round.

Anyone?

I think I'm in too! I have noting OTN! and I've been eyeballing this one. I need to peek through my stash and see what yarn I have I just bought the pattern.

I've never joined a KAL before!

Oooh, I just started Green Gable last night! I'm using some hand-dyed merino. I've gotten past the yarn-overs and am about halfway to removing the sleeve stitches and knitting the body. It's a really quick knit!

This is next on my list, but I just cast on a different tank a few days ago. I'll be reading your experiences eagerly, though!

I've been looking for a summer top to try, and I really like this one. Only concern is that I haven't knitted a garment before...do you think this one will be too complicated. Also, concerned that I need an xxL size, which isn't available... *sighs*

If anyone has any advice, I'd be glad to hear it.

hahaha. glad i looked, because i was about to start a KAL for this one! i cast on tonight with KP ShineSport in River and got about 5 rounds done. can i tell you how much i DON'T like knitting into the backward loop cast on stitches?! i had SUCH a hard time getting past the first row!!!
so i'm hoping it'll be smoother sailing now that i've gotten past that part! i've been drooling on this pattern for a while. i hope it turns out nice! i've had issues with getting sweaters to fit lately...so i'm hoping this one will will be an easier one to figure that out with....

Yay! I'm so glad there are some others making this!!! I was away at a meeting last night and only got a couple rows in. It definitely was interesting doing that first row after the cast on.

Meghan - I am worried about the fit too, but I think it helps that it is top down so we can try it on as we go. My measurement is 35" and I am making the small.

Tik - I think this is a pretty easy garment to make. The k1f&b might be a little tricky at first, but Amy's video is great.

Hope to see pictures soon from everyone. I'll try and take one too!

i sure hope it fits! i measure 38" so i went with the medium. i think the last pattern i made i went with the large....and i didn't try on anything until it was too late (well, too late for lazy people like me who didn't want to tear it out!)
i hope it knits up fast! i'm hoping to make a Glee and a rusted root too!

I hear you. I even swatched this time! I was so proud of myself for doing so. I got gauge the first time so I'm really hoping it will work out.

My next sweater is going to be the Eyelet Cardigan. I actually bought that kit in that color. I like Rusted Root a lot too. I'll have to go check out Glee!
