I tried to add this picture to my original post but did not see where I could do the attachment. So started this new thread.
Here is the sweater shown in the book "Hot Knits". It's an easy knit and holding my interest. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2244/1617740596_b0b47a3a3c.jpg?v=0
Love it!!! The red is just beautiful and your work is wonderful!!! I am getting excited about making it as well!
I just finished the back of the sweater. It came out great. Tomorrow I'll begin knitting the front. So far so ...good.
