Yesterday I created a Yahoo group for the Ingeborg Knit-along, which we plan to start May 15. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join. You can join at the Group Page.
There’s no requirement to join if you’re going to knit along, and no requirement to knit along if you join. I just thought it would be easier for us to communicate with each other by doing it through a group. And anyone who wants to will be able to upload progress photos to the photo area.
It may be a bit premature to start the group now, but before we start the actual knitting we can discuss things like what colorway we wanna make, where to get the yarn, yarn substitutions, size issues, etc.
I have set the group up so that the list of members is visible only to the moderator — me. Hopefully that’ll prevent any spammers from trawling for email addys.
So join up!
By the way, I had originally stated “sometime in the first half of May” as my target starting date for Ingeborg. I’ve moved it to May 15 because I’ve got a couple of things I want to do before I get started on Ingeborg. But if you’re raring to go, you can certainly start knitting earlier. Or you can start later if that works for you. No big whoop.
Critter Knitters Blankie
I am bravely soldiering along on the crocheted blankie. The first row of double crochet is less than perfect, but it’s improving the more I do. Still, I don’t plan to give up knitting for crochet anytime soon.
I like the comment that Cat left about my Regia tweedy sock yesterday:
Just looking at it makes me want to curl up in my knitting chair and not budge all day, except to grab a cookie & some tea long about 1 pm.
I know what you mean! I think it’s the knitting equivalent of comfort food. It’s such a nice comfy cosy looking yarn.
Miss Flora is now sporting three full pattern repeats. Another 18 rounds until I start the front neck steek.

Oh and yes, that is my shoulder on page 12 of the new Vogue Knitting. I haven’t seen it yet — did they get my best side? 😉
