Knit a Long with me

The February Lady Sweater has been on my short list for ages. It's cute as a button (something I admit to aspiring to), well recommended and really, I think it looks great on a variety of people. So, I am going to do a knit-a-long here at the store over the summertime. It's a quieter time for classes and most knitters aren't interested in taking classes so the Knit In Clinics are taking a break for a couple of months.

The plan is, cast on July long weekend, finished photo to me for Labour Day weekend and all the finished sweater knitters will be eligible for a swanky (to be determined) prize.

I have not knit this sweater before, so we can all do it together! Head over here to the Ravelry link. Make sure to read the wiki (the tab at the top) and print out your pattern. The designer has requested that yarn stores do not print and hand out this pattern and I will respect that request.

Mine is going to be knit out of Vintage. I love, love, love this yarn. It is so nice and squooshy. Brick red I think, as no more black or grey is allowed into my wardrobe until I achieve some sort of colour balance!
