CC-Sweater EDIT: FINISHED!!!
Since we have this new forum, I thought I would post my progress on my first self-designed sweater.
I still haven't found an acceptable name for it , so untill I find one it's name will be CC-Sweater(CC for cozy and cabled).
It's a basic sweater with a cable running up on the front and similare cables on the sleeves. There will be minimal(aka none) shaping, because it's a stay-at-home-sweater(sahs ).
Anyway, I completed the front up to the armholes, but I'm not sure how much to decrease for them. I have calculated the shaping according to a passage on "Sweater design in plain english", but I think that's too much decreasing. I have stopped knitting after decreasing 11 sts on each size and will now begin knitting the back.
It's too dark to make a pic now, but for those who haven't already seen it here's an older progress pic.

Thanks for reminding me! Totally forgot to tell you.
It was an Ebay(evil :devil: ) purchase. On the Label it sais:
"Blarney Woollen Mills"
Knits to Traditional Aran Type Patterns
It's 100% wool and made in Ireland, no gauge or needle size given. I googled a bit and found a store in Ireland where they sell "tourist" stuff and of course also Aran sweaters. They don't list yarn in that shop though.

Yeah for boring tv programm! Honestly, "Gangs of New York" is probably the worst movie I saw this year...even worse than that bollywood thing :rollseyes:
But it helped me to knit most of the back as you can see in the pic!
The other pic is a scan of my projects plan. Yep, my drawing abilities are poor, but who cares

I LOVE Bollywood movies in all their corniness!! The music is usually AMAZING! And, I have an Indian friend from whom I can borrow as many as I like...

That sweater looks REALLY great, Javede.....
