Here are the choices for this year's KAL:
DROPS jacket in ”Alaska” with cables, raglan sleeves and hood
DROPS jacket in ”Eskimo” or ”Silke-Alpaca” with A-shape and ¾-long or long sleeves
Valpuri - form fitting T with a split neckline and cap sleeves, knit in an eye-appealing variety of cable stitches
All three patterns use larger gauge to make the knitting go a little bit faster, with varied difficulty level to suit a variety of skill levels. The Drops patterns have alternative yarn suggestions. Personally, I plan on stash diving to find something suitable. As much as I hate it, I guess that will mean swatching.
As there are only two of us, so far, that will be participating, I am thinking of a small yarn and/or accessories swap instead of a prize for the first one to complete their sweater. If more members participate, perhaps we could give out a prize based on votes for best fitting sweater. Sweaters still need to be finished and ready to wear by March 31st. More info to follow, and, as always, please post any suggestions in the comments.
I hate to bother you, Michelle, but is there a way to inform all previous participants of this year's March Sweater Madness without sending individual emails?
Happy March Sweater Madness!
