A Cardigan for Arwen KAL

Ever since I laid eyes on the Cardigan for Arwen, I've been smitten. Cables? Love 'em. Kate Gilbert? Love her. But there's also a slightly less knit-noble reason: Arwen is a strong sexy character and Liv Tyler is breath-takingly beautiful. I'd move to Rivendell for her. What's not to love??

Now, if only someone would design a sweater for Galadriel. Meow.

...hello, Mafia? get your mind out of the gutter and back to the knitting...

I've been obsessing about this sweater for the past few days, and whenever I see Beth on the train, we discuss little else. So clearly we should invite more people into this conversation, right? Well, we did.

Go see the brand spankin' new: A Cardigan for Arwen Knit-Along!

It's still a baby blog, but Beth's creating a button, and we're planning contests and prizes. For now, since the Interweave Knits Winter 2006 issue won't hit newstands until November 14th, we'll be discussing yarn options and hunting for sale prices.

To join us, drop an email to ACardiganForArwen AT gmail DOT com and we'll sign you up. Fun!

I really hope Kate follows up with something for Eowyn, because she is at least a factor of ten cooler than Arwen. (Hello! She was out there doing combat with the Witch-King while Arwen was lolling on her fainting couch.)

But still. I can't wait to get my hands on this pattern.

Okay, the hood sold me on it. And heck, all the cool kids are doing it. Might as well.

Proof that I am not up on the LOTR thing: I saw the listing for the new Kate Gilbert sweater and thought "Oh, Arwen must be what she named the Tadpole!"
If I had bothered to examine the photo I'd have seen it was not in fact a baby sweater.

Depending on how much I can get done, I may use up some CTH to make Arwen. Will have to see!

Well that's pretty tempting - I would love to have a cardigan that would allow me to pretend I have Liv Tyler's stuning beauty.
