Monica from the new knitty spring
I would love to knit this for my daughters...anyone with me?

I can't start it yet, as I have two knitting WIP's and one crochet WIP. Once I am down to two WIP's I can start!
(Not to mention my -other- very longstanding WIP's)

I have some organic coloured cotton I might be able to use. Two shades of green.

How do you do hyperlinks?

it seems I did know

I might have to do this. It's the first project that's even tempted me to turn away from my new sock addiction!

I'm definitely making this but I must finish 2 other projects first. I love that adorable pattern, and my mom (a master knitter) promised to show me the 3 needle bind off so I can get it right! I'm going to make it in the size 6 kids, but I haven't picked a yarn yet.

how soon are we starting? I'll try to get my other stuff done asap.

I am so making this!

All I have to do is get my March KAL going and order some yarn from Knit Picks!

Can't wait!

Best,
Susan

what type of yarn are you guys going to use for this? I've just bought some Crystal Palace Bamboozle for another project that I think would be perfect for this.

What do you think??

I was looking at this pattern and wondering if I could do this whole thing in the round.

I would cast on double the number of stitches for the body and knit the length that I want. Then I could knit the ruffle also on a circ. and join the 2 pieces by knitting them together from one needle to the next.

No seams to sew!

I think I'm going to try it in some stash yarn -- there's no shaping involved so how hard could that be?

Any reason it wouldn't work?

Best,
Susan

I want to do this one also
just not yet
I have a few loose end to tie up or shall I say weave in

I have already sent this to my daughter for my granddaughters approval
and color choices they are 6 and 8

I was thinking superwash but do you think shine would be better
shine is cheaper


let me know I am looking forward to these KAL this will help me use the yarn I have or at least have some sticks empty

You have to look at yardage -- Shine is $2.49 a ball but there are only 75 yards to a skein. The pattern is in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece which has 215 yards per skein. So you have to get at least 8 skeins of Shine (3 in the ruffle color, 5 for the body.)

I'm not familiar with Superwash so I can't compare.
