Calista Yoo's Aran Off-Shoulder Sweater

Hello everyone, this is the first time I have actually posted, but I joined this KAL earlier in the fall. This is the progress I have made so far on my sweater. I am working on this sweater for both the Fall '06 Cable KAL and the Red Sweater KAL. This is my first attempt at knitting a sweater and also knitting in the round. I only started knitting in June of this year. I taught myself using a kit from LionBrand. I learned to crochet at an early age, but no one I knew knit. I finally found some time this summer and taught myself. I have really enjoyed reading everyone elses posts. The sweaters and yarn are so pretty! Happy Knitting!

WOW! For a beginner knitter, you are doing a fantastic job. It looks beautiful and good for you on jumping in there and trying this beautiful sweater!

Fabulous! It's coming along great. I *love* that braid up the center. :-)

I'm pretty impressed! Never attempted cabling and diamonding in the round before - always flat - so you're way ahead of me on this! Well done indeed. What's the pattern?
