Aran Cardigan

Finally I can start new projects without having that Tumbling Blocks sweater looming over me. It feels good to be free of colour work and to be able to do cables. They are relaxing to me, I've always enjoyed watching them travel up a piece of work.

I started this last Thursday and it feels so good to do fun stuff again. It's just a bit strange as my grandmother knit this same cardigan for my dad a long time ago. He can't find it anymore which bummed me out. I have nothing that my grandmother knit. She taught me to knit 28 years ago, now I'm doing the same sweater she did at least 30 or more years ago. The smell of the wool with the natural oils still in it makes me high LOL! I love that smell.
