Sophisticate KAL and Winner

Hi all. I’m excited to announce a couple of things, including the lucky winner of the sophisticate cardigan from last week’s post (winner below). FIRST, I was thrilled by the number of commenters who thought this would be a good first sweater to knit. I agree with you – it is simple, but classic, and is perfect for you sweater newbies. They are so much easier than you think and its great to make a kiddo one your first – so much faster. As a result of the response, I want to announce my first Knit-A-Long. Lets do it together and you newbie sweater knitters can ask questions along the way. I will only ask that you buy the pattern for $5 and, if you want to join, I will enroll you in the KAL, which will be a hosted group on Ravelry. It will be my first KAL, so we’ll figure out all the new stuff together as we go along.

AND without further ado . . . . Allie is jumping for joy . . . .

the winner is . . .


Melinda, I did not have your email address. If you leave it in the comments below or send me an email (address below), I will send you the PDF. Congratulations!

And, I do hope the rest of you decide to join me to make a sweet little cardi for the little girl in your life this fall. I think I might go more girly for this one. I was thinking about adding hook and eye fasteners to close it and perhaps add some knit flower embellishments in appropriate colors – fun. You’ll have to join the KAL! Email me at flaxandtwine(at)gmail(dot)com if you have any questions.
