Fringe & Friends Knit-Along: Week 01
This fall I'll be participating in Karen Templer's Fringe and Friends Knit-Along as a panelist. The theme of the KAL this go round is top-down construction using Karen's Top-Down Tutorial. I've never knit a top down sweater before, I'm more of a traditional knit bottom up in pieces knitter, probably because it most closely resembles drafting sewing patterns.
I'll be knitting my FAFKAL sweater for Jon. I mentioned a few months ago that I'd knit him a sweater if he wanted one and he finally settled on a fisherman's rib raglan pullover so when Karen approached me about participating I thought it would be a perfect fit.
I'll be using O-Wool Balance in Talc which I'm very excited about and was generously provided to me for this KAL by Jocelyn. I picked the yarn and Jon picked the color, obviously I like the fact that he went with grey.
You can read more about my swatch and sweater plans over on Fringe Association today. I'm really excited to knit this sweater for Jon. He treats everything I've ever made him with so much love and I know he's pumped to wear it when it's done.
