2007 is a new year as we all know, so I decided to start some new knitting. Firstly I started the Tweedy Aran Cardigan which is designed by Norah Gaughan. I am using Rowan Aran Tweed in the Hero colorway which I purchased from Janette's Rare Yarns on ebay last year. It has thin and thick parts in this yarn, and has already snapped in one part. I will have to be more careful. I am only on the bottom part of the border so far, so do not expect major progress on this at any time soon, it may be a sweater that I do a part of a month. Next up is the King Swing jacket, which I am really liking. This is for my nephew Hayden who is turning 10 in February. I am using a woolblend crepe for this, which is machine washable. I am sure his mum will appreciate that. He is an outdoors boy, so I am sure it will get a lot of wear (I hope). I have not knit anything for Hayden since he was a baby so it is time I made another jacket for him. I am planning on making another one too in a different colorway for my other nephew Thomas who turns 5 in March. His will be in a burnt orange colorway, I assume that is what the color is. Well that is all for now, happy knitting!
