Well I think we can all see who's the queen of colorwork. Ingrid, your sweaters are really an inspiration!!! But I'm still jealous of your St. Moritz. LOL Osterdalen (Dale's 2004 sweater) is my very NEXT project!

Thank you! I knit my first stitch when I was about 9--in the early Sixties. :rollseyes: I knit periodically, all self-taught, for chunks of time in my teenage years, then again through my pregnant/new mom years.

I didn't really pick it up again until I told my grandson I could knit and he asked me to knit him a sweater. I haven't stopped since. That's been about 3 years I guess.

Thank you everyone!

Whatever the end product, it's still one stitch at a time, one row at a time. I think that everything in knitting looks a lot more difficult than it is. Don't wait for lessons--give it a shot. I'm sure there must be at least a few yards of extra yarn laying around your houses somewhere!

And Silver--the hardest part of the St. Moritz sweater was the mile of plain stockette stitch until I got to the patterning. I think I dozed off a few times, but it was a good carry-around project for a while.
