Tour de France Knit Along! (KAL)

My brother is a big* an avid cyclist and Tour fan (although, sadly, not a knitter. yet.), so I thought this would be a fun KAL to be in. Click here for all the details.

I have decided that Nettie fits nicely into the "market bag" category, and since I'll be knitting it anyway for the class, won't it be more fun to do a KAL? I think so.

I chose the yellow jersey because Nettie fits into my "average skills" category (choose what is average for you, as I understand it). I plan to finish before the race ends, but I will enjoy the group thang.

I don't know when the signup deadline is, but the Tour starts July 7. Bon voyage!

*Edited June 27. My brother is tallish, but he ain't big, lol.

Hi! The signups end when the prologue begins, so you are in plenty of time. And yes, you have it right -- the project should be average for your personal experience. We just designated it that way so if people wanted the opportunity to learn something new and theoretically more difficult for them, they could go with the polka dot jersey. :)


Does your brother race or just like to ride?
