A New Year's Knitting

It's been quite a while since I've posted here. Life just gets in the way sometimes.
I have been knitting and wanted to start regularly to put the pics up here.
I finished a dishcloth sample for K&C. They're doing a dishcloth a month this yr. so be sure to pop over there and check those out.
This month is called Oat stitch and it's pretty whether you use a large needle or a smaller one. The pattern is free on K&C.
I also finished my Son of Aran sweater from Janet Szabo's tutorial. This pattern is still available on the net too.
I learned a lot about measuring and gauge and making a sweater that actually fit! This was the first time that I knit saddles for the shoulders. The sweater is knit all in one piece and it's not hard to follow her excellent instructions.
She is currently leading another aran tutorial called Follow the Leader Aran Knitalong. You can find the instructions here
There is a Yahoo group that is working together to knit this sweater here
This is my next project tho I'm a few days behind. That doesn't matter...since you can work at your own pace.
Come and check out the groups and join the knitting.
Knit on thru all crisises.
