Happy Valentines Day

I hope your Valentine's Day is a sweet one!

See...I've been knitting!

I've been plugging away on my Aran Wrap Cardigan, that is until I hit a road block.
I REALLY love knitting this pattern, that is until I came to the place that made me question my knitting abilities! Thanks to some Ravelry friends & the designer herself, Angela Hahn I'm back on the road to finishing it! Vogue Knitting just assumed everyone knew what they were thinking when writing up this pattern! I believe they were trying to save space in the magazine...wrong place to cut back the directions!! So instead of trying to knit along and figure it out I decided to use Ravelry to make some contacts and see if my questions could get answered without me knitting, ripping and re-knitting my precious handspun!

I can't thank Angela enough for her VERY detailed explanation! She assured me I'm NOT the only knitter who's had the same problem in the pattern.

This isn't the first of her designs I've knit, and won't be the last! I have many, many, many more queued for future projects!
Isn't Ravelry an amazing community?!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
