Aran Sweaters

It's been knitting full week after Christmas. I didn't do anything else but knit and eat and grocery shop and knit and eat.

After a few starts and some frogging I finally finished the second Aran sweater.

Next on the list is a crocheted summer top for my SD.

I'll be busy again, until the top is done.

I'll say it are just amazing!! I finished my plain garter stitch scarf for the veterans and that was a big deal!! You have knit two beautiful sweaters!! But I imagine you have been knitting longer than I have. I only learned to knit about a year ago. How long have you been knitting?

Thank You, Janet.

I've been knitting since my early teens. I learned to knit when I was about 8, but didn't like knitting socks and mittens, so I cried until my mom did my homework, haha. I made my first major work when I was 12, a tube dress (chocolate brown) for me, and my sister (hers was golden yellow). After that I have had only a few breaks from knitting. Crocheting as well as some painting and drawing have replaced knitting a few times.
