When I saw there was a KAL on KR, I thought it would be fun to join you. I don't have a blog, but I have the impression that is not necessary (if it is, I'll have to decline your invitation). I've knit the body up to the sleeve openings and am now knitting the sleeves - about ready to switch to St St. I'm using the Rowan Felted Tweed in Whisper, a light blue. If you're interested, I have a gallery:
which shows not only my work in progress, but also about 50 completed sweaters, etc. I look forward to sharing with all of you.
