Welcome to week two of our spring KAL for the Goodale Cardigan! I hope everyone’s projects are cruising right along without any issues. I’ve had just a few questions so far, but it seems like a lot of the issues are being cleared up over on the Ravelry thread. Everyone has been so nice and forthcoming with their tips and tricks, it’s so much fun to see everyone helping each other out over there!

The only complaint is that the blue dye left a little residue on my hands after knitting for a couple of hours. I think that is normal with these rich saturated colors, and will just be really careful when soaking and blocking to get as much of it out as possible so that it doesn’t bleed on my clothes. I might also try and set the dye a bit more with a small amount of vinegar as I read in this blog article. I am pretty confident that this will do the trick.

Pediboo, so soft!
Three skeins are actually enough to knit up to a size 45.25” bust Goodale sweater, or use it for another fun project. In all, this yarn is awesome! If you haven’t added yourself to the roll call for the KAL yet, please do so in last week's blog post if you’d like to be in the running to win some of these fabulous prizes for participating! I’ll announce the yarn winners in the Week 5 blog post so be sure to enter by May 15th at Midnight (Pacific Time).
Thanks everyone for tuning in this week, and for joining us on this adventure! We’ll see you next week with a guest post from Goodale designer Cecily Glowik MacDonald!
