I'm still a fairly knitter and new here, but I am thoroughly enjoying reading through the posts and learning all the ins and outs of knitting.
I decided to try something a bit ambitious for me, and it turned out wonderfully. It turned out to be a lot easier than I thought. I have so few knitting friends in real life, that I figured I'd post here.
The pattern is here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176869
and I used Patons Shetland Chunky High Plains Variegated.
