Hi April

I just picked out the yarn also, Iam hoping to use a broze one that Maryann is selling on the swap/sell page.

Iam excited about knitting it, but a little nervous about the cables. I may have to write the chart into word instructions, with it being my first time knitting with a cable chart.

What one are you knitting first
I liked the rogue one but , the bottom hem of the eris was absolutely beautiful

I have knitted the celtic cap, I love it!
And the Rogue... and I have bought the pattern for Eris, but have not started yet. Maybe next year.

I think I will start the Rogue first because it is for my daughter. I may start both at the same time and just switch off. I will probably have to write out the cable chart also. I have never worked from a chart and it looks a bit scary. Good luck. Can't wait for the yarn to come in!

I thought the cap was wonderful, I have a hank of a pale green wool, that I used to knit a sweater and had left over. Iam going to try it in that.

Doing the baby steps with this one, the chart is a bit scary and 14 pages for the hat pattern whoa ...

I have to tell that I am not very used to knit from english patterns, I sometimes find it a bit difficult in a foreign language.
Both the celtic cap and the Rogue was so easy to understand and knit. Side up and side down... many pages, but that is because she tells you how to do it, very detailed.

I thought I would try and ressurect Eris. I got Knit Picks Telemark in Grey Wolf. It knits up really nice so far and gives me almost perfect guage. Who can beat the price .

If anyone is interested, I just started the neck, Iam doing the cardigan, I started it last night, about 1/2 way around I realized I missed a cable and it was really noticable so I had to frog back.

So if anyone wants to share ideas, and work along

Join In.

I want to make this for my daughter's birthday. I don't need to finish by then, simply have the yarn for it and the neck done so I can give her that and then fit it as I go... but I just can't seem to decide on the yarn I want!

I was hoping to check out different yarns people used on the yahoo knit-along that was done for this, but the group is GONE! :(

OMG that sweater is gorgeous! I wish I knew how to knit cables and I'd join in the fun. Maybe I'll order the pattern to just keep around until I master cables.
