Dahlia KAL
Hi, does anyone want to knit Dahlia with me? I fell in love with it when the issue came out and I received yarn to make it in for christmas..and I'm all ready to start! This will be my first real fitted piece so I'm being really careful and knitted some swatches. I'm using Knitpicks Main Line in Wedgewood which is a really lovely blue. It's so soft and lightweight. I'm making the size small and using the suggested needle size to start. So join along =)

I fell in love with the pattern too when I saw it! Very beautiful.

I wish I could join you, but I am currently working on other projects. I did receive a gift card to my favorite yarn shop this Christmas and would love to join you once I buy the yarn. I am thinking about buying Cascade 220 (yarn suggested) in a teal color maybe... Well, keep us updated and I'll join you when possible!

I would love to join but I am a VERY slow knitter due to a rheumatoid condition I'd feel bad for little progress pics so I wouldnt feel right joining but the shirt is adorable

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

This pattern is quite tricky, I keep recasting on. I must practice the stitches it uses throughout or I'll keep frogging when I get to a part I'm having trouble with!

knitwit, oh teal would look so nice =) join whenever you can.

KnitPixie, It's okay this is going to go real slow for me too. I keep thinking about the song Hey There Dahlia, in the chorus when it says "It's what you do to me"...driving me crazy that's what.

I love that song and the shirt lol although I think the name in the song was delilah not dahlia but who cares anyway right?! I may join you but when I say slow I mean like a turtle, it took me two months off and on to knit a pair of worsted weight socks:/

Don't feel bad! I am still knitting my first pair of socks and I've been working on them since July. But I have been super busy and made a mistake when grafting my second sock... so they are on hold right now.

Yep, I have blue eyes so teal looks really pretty on me . I hope knitting the shirt goes well for me once I start it, since I haven't knitted a shirt before. This will definitely be a challenge!

No wonder I couldn't find the song on itunes..been spelling it wrong

Well socks are hard..I should know, I've been knitting the heel flap for quite sometime too on the one's I'm making.

If it helps the song is called "Hey there Delilah" by the Plain White Tees

hmm.... now that I think about it Cascade 220 might not be such a great idea. I would like to wear this shirt in the summer too, and it can be very hot and humid where I live. So, 100% wool may not be such a great idea. And I would like to buy a machine washable yarn, if possible. Whenever I decide to buy yarn for this project I think I'll ask my LYS to recommend a different yarn for around the same price. A soft cotton maybe? And in the winter I can just layer a t-shirt underneath when it gets cold.
