Hi Everyone!
I just joined the KAL after seeing some completed Silver Belles on Ravelry. I've had the pattern in my queue for awhile. I've wanted to make the cardigan ever since I saw it in Vogue Knitting. But I thought it was probably way beyond my capablility!

I'm glad to see other people's results, encouragement, and tips!

I'm waiting on my yarn to get here. I ordered if from Knit Picks last week. I'm going to use Swish Superwash in Jade. I ordered an extra ball because I've seen posted that several people have run out. Now I'm worried that I still didn't order enough because I want to lengthen my Silver Bell, as well.

Last night I worked through all the lines of the peplum typing it out line by line since with all those charts I figured I'd get really confused. I still need to do that for the sleeves.

It looks like some people started with the sleeves and yoke first to get an idea of how long to make the peplum so now I have to decide if I want to do that too. Any thoughts about which is better? Peplum first or sleeves and yoke first?

Hi Rhonda!!!

So glad you joined us and letting us know what yarn you ordered too!

Yep you may need some more since you plan to lenghten the peplum.

I haven't started on mine yet but I plan to do the same start on the sleeves then yoke as well.

Can't wait to see you cast on!

And I need to type everything out like you are doing as well!

Thanks so much for joining and chiming in right away!
