While I'm Dreaming......

Two intriguing KAL's and the mention of a third of peaked my interest. The first is Janet Szabo's Follow the Leader Aran. More details will be up soon on the Aranknit Yahoo group and the Start is set at January 1, 2006. Another also interesting KAL in the works to be hosted over at January One. The details are in her post Crossed in Translation. I dare you to go look at the pics. The sweater is beautiful but the catch is it is a Japanese pattern, one size. Word has it the charts are very clear and it may be easy to adjust the size.

The third is based on this sweater:

 Posted by Picasa It is a casual hooded cabled sweater that appeared in the Aug 23 1977 Family Circle. My Mom made this sweater for my sister. My sister didn't like it when it was finished and I wanted it. My Mom wouldn't give it to me because it was for my sister and since I knew how to knit she figured I should do it myself. Well, 30 years later (gulp!) I've seen a few references to it and was able to get a copy of the pattern as well as the magazine off a recent EBay auction. Soooo, I'll check with Family Circle, the Author, and try to track down whoever I need to regarding copyright. Maybe this pattern can be available again for a KAL.

Back to reality! Some tough decisions will have to be made on what project/KALs to start in January. I have enough yarn for two of the projects. Time, well, that's another story. Speaking of time, specifically saving it, Look what my Hubby made for me! It's not quite finished but it is usable.
