My neighbour Sue and I have started knitting Shalom Cardigans and I thought it would be a lovely idea if I opened this project up here to see if anyone would like to cast on with us and knit along. I really love this pattern, it is so beautiful and quite a quick knit too. How nice it would be if there were a few of us from all over the world knitting the same project at the same time:) The pattern is a free pattern and it can be found on Meghan’s blog called Involving the Senses on her right hand sidebar. If you do a search on Ravelry, you will also find it there and you will be able to see how many of these cardigans have been knitted and the pattern notes that people have made etc… I knitted my first Shalom cardigan last year and it is wonderful, I added long sleeves by picking up stitches around the armholes. You can see it here. The one I have just cast on is being knitted in a handspun natural beige Merino wool.
If you feel you would like to join in, just leave a comment and I will add your blog link in this blog post:) This button will be added to my sidebar and you can also add it to yours if you wish:) This way we can pop over to one another’s blogs by just clicking on their links to see their progress and be inspired by visiting new blogs too. I will be posting my Shalom Cardigan progress each Wednesday.
I have started a new thread on my Mamma4earth Ravelry page for all those on Ravelry who would like to discuss their Shalom progress and post photos etc…
