A Summer Sweater Knit-Along

The lovely and fabulous Shannon of luvinthemommyhood has put together a very cool summer knit-along over on her superb blog and of course I am all for that!

If you'd like a little cyber-company in your knitting this summer and you're looking for something fun to make, this just might be the event for you.

Everyone will be knitting Knitbot's completely awesome Effortless Cardigan:

Which is a great choice for beginners and experienced knitters alike. Hannah's easy-to-follow instructions and uncomplicated style make it a great project for everyone.

The knit-along will run from June 15 (so there's still time to sign up, get your pattern—which you can do here—and pick out your yarn) until September 1 (giving you just enough time to knit, knit, knit and have your finished sweater ready for the cooler weather).

Along the way you can share your progress in the luvinthemommyhood flickr group.

And I hear {ahem} that there will be lots of lovely prizes at the end. How fun!

Happy knitting!

It's so nice, isn't it? You could always do it on your own when you have more time!

Thanks for the link love my dear. Just wanted to add that the knit along is for ANY pattern of your choice as long as it is a sweater or cardigan. Hope to see you all join in!
