After almost of year of my knitting being in suspended animation, I have recently gotten back into my needlework, partly due to finding a very good knitting video cast called Sittin and Knittin with Dianna. She has inspired me to take up my needles again in a big way, I am back to my ongoing syndrome of "start-itis". I just love starting new patterns, but my Celtic Dreams aran sweater is an old one. I was on the sleeves and had to rip back to figure out where I was.
This is a great pattern, but I found I did not like doing the sleeves in the round because I had to constanly turn the whole sweater, so I decided to not connect the sleeves as the pattern calls for, but am knitting them back and forth and then will just seam them up. This yarn is Patons Classic Wool, "Plum Heather". Its gorgeous and good to work with.
