I got new knitting needles from our son for Christmas and decided to get started on my sweater. (I actually started a few days before Christmas.) I don't know if I will have enough yardage for a long sleeved sweater or just a vest, so I'm gonna finish the front facing and collar and then decide.
Like all my knitting, I never really follow a pattern. This pattern that I'm not following is from the book A Fine Fleece. I really do enjoy this book, each pattern is worked up in both homespun and store bought yarn. I spend way too much time looking at my book collection. Have I ever mentioned that I just love "how to" books? It's surely my one true weakness.
