Welcome to the knitalong!

Hi all Enid Cardigan enthusiasts!

When my blog pal, Susan and I discovered that we both loved Veronik Avery's design in the winter 2006 issue of Interweave Knits, we thought it would be fun to knit it together and even MORE fun if we hosted a knitalong! We're still working a bit on the site, but consider this the official kick-off and let the plotting, scheming, yarn buying, knitting, chatting, and fun begin!

To start, let me share that Veronik Avery has given the knitalong her official blessing and even offered a bit of very helpful advice - she says that two knitters could easily split the balls of contrasting colors of Reynolds Whiskey and have enough for each of their respective sweaters. I don't know about you, but the clever colors were what first drew me to this cardigan and if you feel the same way, I'm hoping that this knitalong can be a place to share more than just ideas and pictures but yarn too - how cool.

If you'd like to join in, please email one of us or leave a comment and we'll add you as a contributor!

I have already started knitting Enid and would like to join your KAL. My email is FairyGodKnitter@aol.com, my blog is http://thejoyofsocks.typepad.com/
I'm almost to the armpits on the body and have started one sleeve but I'm afraid that I will be distracted by other projects as it takes so long to get to the colorwork. Joining in will keep me on track. Thank you for setting this up.

HA, you've answered my blog prayers! I would love to join, and I'll cast on with you guys on New Years! Great idea. I already have all my yarn but if anyone would like to split, I'm up for it.

As I said on your other blog, I'm considering it. I'd have to figure a sub for the yarn then order it. Seems like the mag I have has different colors its version. I'll have to dig it up and see.

I was wrong! I don't have the mag, and can't find it in the bookstores around here. Maybe I can order an issue in time for the KAL. We'll see
