When I was first learning to knit last winter, I reached out to Shannon for help. I knew her through a few channels and she is a wonderful person. She had great advice and patterns and resources for a newby and as I quickly worked my way through hats, scarves and sweaters, I get to participate through ravelry and blogs for knit alongs!
I’m excited to be able to participate in the summer sweater knit along and for this I pulled out a project I hadn’t started but had intentions to start. I was all prepped with the pattern, yarn and skills! Then swimming lessons hit, and I knew it was time to drag out a knitting project for those half hour sections of sitting still at the pool.

I have finished the body and one sleeve so far. just one sleeve and the collar. But, as I am knitting I am realizing I am going to run out of yarn before I get the collar done. So, do you think that a collar of a coordinating solid would look odd? I can get another skein of the tigerlilly I am just a little overwhelmed by the final cost of this sweater already. I think I need wholesale yarn accounts…
