Aran Sweater
So my next project, and it's going to be a big challenge is an Aran Sweater (think Irish).

Here are the special stitch techniques I need to master:

TWB = knit into back of second st on left hand needle, then knit into front of first st, slipping both sts off needle together

TWF = knit into front of second st on left hand needle, then knit into front of first st, slipping both sts off together

TWP = purl into front of second st on left hand needle, then into front of first st, slipping both sts off needle together

TWL = slip next st onto cable needle and leave at front, P1, then K1 from cable needle

TWR = slip next st onto cable needle and leave at back of work, K1, then P1 from cable needle

CABLE = slip next 3 sts onto cable needle and leave at front, (K1tbl, P1) twice, then K1tbl, P1, K1tbl, from cable needle.

Yikes - much homework to do!!
