I'm getting better at the aran pattern; at this point, I am even able to listen to music and sing along whilst knitting. No TV though. But tomorrow night is the Fedex Bowl, and I think I can aran during football.


Don't worry; 2009 won't only be knitblogging.

Looks beautiful so far!

Ditto. I love "making of" pictures!

Eventually you'll be able to aran through anything. And spontaneously create your own patterns without even trying!

Ha, well, I hope I don't do too much spontaneous pattern creation on this one, cuz that will mean I'm doing it wrong :)

Wow! Beeee-autiful! :-) And I'm still too scared to start a pair of socks... but you've reminded me that I should get that crocheted blanket out to work on during tomorrow night's game! What a great football project! :-)

I meant you'd create a sweater ex nihilo via total improvisation, not change the pattern on this one halfway ... though you could start a new fad and get rich. One knitter's error is another wearer's fashion.

Pretty! I LOVE cabling! I'm working on some legwarmers and a sweater right now that has lots of cable work!

I'll never knit but I do find the stuff you write on it interesting...Ever thought of starting a mini-companion blog just for the knitting stuff? More work I know but you could just write a special RSS feed to pull only the knitting stuff you're already putting up here...K, done geeking out for now..

Sorry I've disappeared recently. The aran pattern is beautiful. I don't think I could ever pull it off without pulling my hair out. I started a scarf right around Xmas, and still only have about 12 inches done. *sigh*. I will probably just stick with crocheting. I just don't have the necessary patience for knitting. It is beautiful, though.
