Pinwheel Sweater KAL
Well,

I am going to make one of these for our Easter trip away...

I'm double stranding Grignasco Bambi in 5 colours. Three of which I already have (so I can start it at least :D)

Who's with me??

:D

Oh me, absolutely...

Good call - it was thanks to you that i already have the all my colours picked and put in a little cane basket, along with the printed pattern, just waiting to start...

However, I have the Sock Swap to do as well, so is there any time constraints on these?

One day, we can meet for lunch and a knit, maybe halfways between Brissy and Sydney and we can both wear our pinwheel sweater and be twins that knit

I'm in!
Ok, so I've become quite obsessed with this pattern since I first opened it this morning. Count me in! I'm currently trying to choose colors, and I'll hopefully be buying the yarn and needles this Friday!

Are you guys using the elann yarn? It seems like a good price, but I'm still new to knitting so if there's a cheaper yarn of just as good quality out there somewhere, please point me in the right direction.

Oh I'm so excited! This will be my first sweater! If only I could choose between a blue or green color scheme, I'd be set!

No time restraints, kids.. :D

LMAO Dee!! You never know... we plan on taking a trip north soon..

I'm not using the Elann wool, as it costs too much to ship to Australia...

I'm double stranding a 'baby' merino wool that I love to work with :D

I'll be casting on this baby in about a week and a halfs time (if I can restrain myself), as I have a couple of 'deadline' projects about finished...

ooohh, how exciting I'll keep my eye out for you!

I'm not using the Elan wool, same issue with the shipping and all. I'm using some Katia Diana and Mississipi that I have already in my stash, so i'm ready to go, once i finish the multitude of other projects (although i did finish a major project last night, so it's really just the sock swap that i am stressed about at the mo)...

Can't wait to start, I too, am trying very hard to practice the art of restraint!!

Hey all!
I started a thread about this a while back but it became a UFO for me. Maybe I'll join and try to get it finished! I think I only need to do the sleeves...

DH just sent me a link to a Aus wool shop that has great priced yarn...

I may have to rethink my yarn choice :D
