Glentrekker KAL!

I'm back to talk about the Glentrekker Cardigan again, because

Yes, we are having not one, but two simultaneous knitalongs of the Glentrekker Cardigan and hats. One of them is on our Figheadh Fans Ravelry Group and the other is on the Bare Naked Wools Ravelry Group. BNW is selling kits with our pattern and their yarn and if you are using BNW for your Glentrekker, jump in with that group. If you are using any other yarn, then come join us in the FF group. I'll be monitoring both groups, but I will be making another cardigan with this luscious yarn that just came today!
The first Glentrekker (top picture) was knit with BNW Breakfast Blend DK in Bakery Rye. This second one will be knit with their Kent DK in Driftwood. Breakfast Blend is an merino/alpaca blend and Kent is a merino/romney blend, so I will be comparing the two. They are both soft and lovely, I can tell you that much.

The Glentrekker KAL starts today and runs through February 1 of next year. There will be prizes and lots of tips and we'll share our progress along the way. Join us!

I'll be back in a day or two with a post about swatching for this project. In the meantime, I hope to see you in the KAL thread!
