Bulldog/slouchy cardigan knit along

Here's my Henry!
He loves my knitting, but then, he'll eat anything ...

By the way, I am all set to cast on!

Ready to Roll?

I am! Not so sure how I feel about a couple pounds of alpaca stockinette in my lap, since the temps here (Illinois) are in the triple digits, but I'm sure by the time I make that much headway the temperature will have cooled down.

Actually, I just wanted to post to make sure I could actually post. And since I don't have any Slouchy Cardigan pics yet, I hope you don't mind a picture of my bulldog, Thor.

hi everyone,
I am excited about this project and it is my first time participating in a knitalong. Do you think Noro's silk garden will work?

Would any KnitPicks yarns be suitable?

Just waiting for my book ... and am thinking about which yarn to use. I believe I read that the gauge was 19 stitches (not sure what size needles -- maybe 7US?). Is anyone thinking of using a KnitPicks yarn?

Anxious to hear other people's choices/substitutions.

Welcome to the Slouchy Cardigan KAL from "Greetings from Knit Cafe". The start date for the KAL is August 1st, just in time for the cooler tempatures of the fall.

There are pattern corrections available online. The author is very excited that there is interest in a KAL and is working on adjusting the pattern for a larger women's sweater. I will make sure to post information as it becomes available.

If you want to join the KAL, please email me at ddwms AT excite DOT com and leave a comment on the site with your email address. I'm looking forward to knitting with all of you!
