Tartan Jacket Knitalong

Okay, I finally decided that I can't wait any longer. I'm going to make the official announcement about the Tartan Jacket Knitalong. The pattern is, obviously, Tartan Jacket from the Fall 2004 issue of Interweave Knits. A picture can be seen here. The start date is not until January 1, although there's no reason to be too strict with that. If you can dig yourself out from under your holiday knitting to start sooner, go ahead. And people joining after January 1 are definitely welcome. If you would like to be a part of it, leave me a comment and let me know. I'll get a button up here sooner or later. (Fathom has mentioned that she would be interested in making one.) I can't wait to start knitting along with everyone!

Count me in.
I have bought some very icelandic unspun lopi in colours very similar to Teva Durhams. The gauge doesn't fit very well, but I will try to knit the jacket one size larger and hope for the best. (And do some math as well.) My blog is in Swedish so far. Maybe the Tartan posts will appear in English, haven't figured that out yet.

Hi!! Yep, I will make a button this evening on CorelDraw if I can tear myself away from knitting. Then we will be a REAL knitalong.
I will be reunited with the yarn I have for the jacket when I am at my parents' home for Christmas. Hope I have enough, I dont really remember how many skeins I got!

I was thinking about starting this jacket in January too! Perfect timing on the knitalong. Can't wait to start.

This will be my first knitalong and a knitting challenge for me - I can't wait for my yarn to arrive!
