Knit Along Anyone?
nona has a feeling -- call it knitter's intuition -- that you, like nona, love, love, love Alison's nothin' but a t-shirt pattern published a few days ago on MagKnits. What great shape and details! And did you see that schematic -- nona's in heaven. This t-shirt is begging -- yes begging -- us to create our own versions. What word will you use? Will it be on the front or the back? Will you use Calmer or another equally wonderful yarn? Will you crop yours? Remove the sleeves? Or will you knit it exactly as is?
This pattern needs -- no requires -- a knit along, so nona proposes just that. I know many of us are in the thick of finishing our Sockapolooza socks, so the nothin' but a t-shirt knit along will officially commence on April 1st! Care to join in? Post a comment or send nona an email. nona's curious to see your t-shirt creation! Are you curious to see hers?
i'm IN. I'm so in, i'm leaving a comment as well as sending you an email.

I have purple calmer in the stash but no other colors. I will either resign myself to being monochromatic or put the call out to the blog community to see if anyone is willing to do some trading so that I will have a complementary color to work with. In any event, count me in!

I'm in! As soon as I saw that pattern, I ran out and bought lilac for the body and maroon for the trim. I am hoping it will look funky instead of awful... And I am planning to put my name on the front, if I can really quickly learn intarsia.

Dear Nona -- You are the bomb. We received the fingerless gloves yesterday to much jubilation. Sarah will wear them, probably, along with her LEGWARMERS - which are, despite all reason, quite popular again. Perhaps we should knit some?

To my sis--above...YES WE CAN KNIT THAT. To nona--I want to knit that in Sedona...do you think I can get the pattern and yarn quickly enough? I too am sending you an email!

I'd like to joint the knit-along. Have you any substitutes for the All seasons cotton? Is that an Aran weight or heavy worsted weight cotton yarn? Thanks.

Oh, I'm so IN!

I'm so in! I have some Zeal and Bleached Calmer in stash. Woot!

Count me in. I'll be using some Eden Bamboo (100% bamboo fibre)
Since I am Larger Than Most, I will knit in bustline darts and skip the fitted look.
I will be tempted to lengthen the sleeves, to make it 3-season, but that would defeat the idea of being the perfect summer top!

Count me in!! Too cute! Hmmm...I can't get my hands on any Calmer here so I'll have to improvise. Cezanne by Filati is on sale so maybe I'll give that a try - the tension is fairly close and it's the right weight...what's the worst that could happen right? Must remember to swatch!!

I wanna join!!!

OOOooooo. That is cute. But that may be too hard for me to attempt on my own.
Posted by: Donna S. | Mar 8, 2005 2:50:28 PM
Me too. I'm in, but I want to change the neckline, and what do I want on the front???

I'd like to join... this will be my first kint along! And I even have Calmer that was going to be something else but didn't want to! Know it will become the t-shirt, but I too need to buy another color and pick a word.

I'm in. My LYS doesn't carry Calmer. The owner even tried to talk me out of using it. ("Don't knit with Calmer unless you've used it before." How is that possible?) So I'm looking...and excited to start!

I am SO in!!! I just found this pattern and wanted to knit it yesterday! I still have to get the yarn, but should be no problem to get it in time for the knit along. :)

that's quite a knit along you have there
Posted by: anna | Mar 9, 2005 12:57:25 PM

I just emailed but wanted to post and say hi. I hadn't seen this issue of mag knits yet... I love this pattern and am really looking forward to making one (or 2) of them :-)
