Hi everyone! I am excited about this workshop, does anyone have any questions?

Tell me, everyone, what yarn have you chosen?

I have been trying to find the Kid Seta in teal, as I have located a seller for the Tili Thomas and believe this would look stunning on the red head I intend to give the sweater to.

You can do this design without the Tilly as well, it just adds a little bit of bling. If you can only find the Kid, it will be equally beautiful.

This sounds like a good idea for me. I am a beginner knitter and have only done shawls, hats and scarves. I am looking forward to knitting your beautiful cardigan, but I was concerned about using 2 colors, since I have never done that before. I will probably stick with 1 color. Thanks Tamara! :-)

Have found the Kid Seta Teal from "Alpaca Direct" and the Tili Thomas from Ravelry member. May need to play catch up when received but looking forward to making this beautiful sweater.

I chose Cascade Kid Seta. Paradise Yarn is currently having all Cascade yarn at 20% off. I ordered & today I received an email saying it is backordered (I think all of you were ordering this yarn!) Hopefully it will arrive soon...

Aloft from Knit Picks will also work nicely for this design if people are finding it hard to get the Kid Seta.

Im in, however i'm not sure when i can start as i have too many projects to finish, but ill start as soon as i can. Would any laceweight yarn do or do you have to use the mohair/kid silk sort?

I suppose any would work, but I do suggest something with a bit of drape and fuz :-) A merino would make a different look. Keep to a light two ply so that your lace holes don't close up.

Good morning! How is everyone? Are you all waiting for yarn or have some of you started?

I am waiting for yarn, it should be delivered this week to my home, but I will not return home until June 1st. Will have limited internet connection at that time, but have the printed instructions and will start as soon as home and unpacked. Anxious to start on the project.

Hi everyone! sorry I haven't been around - have been going for some tests and when I get home I am ready for a nap, then our GD has been over and on and on.

I see things are pretty quiet. I hope you will ask questions and join in with the workshop. Have any of you started your cardigans? I hope you will drop by and let us know -- I realize that the sweater is a pattern and some of you might be getting on with it - so if you are, or are not. Let us know. I will try to get around a bit more.

You might have heard that i have had to postpone all the rest of the workshops do to health issues for both of us. I hope to be able to
start new workshops in the fall, but just don't have the time or the ability to start or look for new workshops. I think I am ready for a break - We have put on fifty plus workshops and hundreds of people have either taken or done our classes - I am very proud of that. I want you all to pass the word that each and every workshop will be left in the Section permanently for your information.

Take care -- I will try to drop by tomorrow.
