Full Tilt

Yesterday at our weekly knitting meet up some news of interest was shared, but as it isn't my news to to tell, I will say no more and wait for the information to be revealed in due time.

What I can talk about however, is that among our little group there was a lot of interest in knitting, Norah Gaughan's Tilted Duster from the Fall 2007, Interweave Knits Magazine.
So we have decided to have a Tilted Duster KAL that we're planning to start in January, (Holiday knitting and all taking precedence) although some of us may be starting earlier.

We haven't made any decisions on how we are going to do the kal yet but if there is enough interest we could start a blog for the Kal . Ravelry has a Kal starting in January but not everyone is on Ravelry so maybe, we'll have Duster Knit Along blog as well.
The magazine is sold out but, Interweave Knits has made the pattern available as a download from their site.

Yoke Detail, It's the two button closure that makes it for me.

So we all are getting excited about the project and we are now getting excited about getting gauge. But before I get gauge I need to get yarn. I made an impulse buy a week or two ago of this Paton's Classic wool in their Autumn color way because, well because I like autumn colors.
Of course when I got the yarn home, I thought just what are you going to knit with that anyway? I don't know, I was thinking maybe an afghan? using small squares of colors or something, I don't know. I hadn't thought that far, it was on sale and it's pretty.

So I'm going to play around with this a bit and see if I can come up with something that might work for the duster. If not, so be it I have another month to come up with the right yarn for the job.

Anyone else interested in knitting a duster along with us?

do a few samples with that yarn if you're thinking of doing the duster with it. I used a different color and hated the way it pooled on one project, but with a different stitch count it turned out nicely.

so, if you can't spill the news, who's blog do we need to stalk to look for it?
