Hi Theresa - I started on Jan 2nd and am on the 5th
pattern repeat of the back. St. Brigid has been sidelined by Mariah (from
knitty.com). I'm using Cottage Craft which is a bit stiff (never
next-to-skin wear), but has great stitch definition. There is quite a bit
of veggie matter to pick. I just received a flyer from Cottage Craft for
three sweater kits for $99. You get 8 4 oz skeins (ea 272 yds) with each
kit. Individual kits are $34.95, so not much difference in price. I
ordered one extra skein for St. Brigid for piece of mind.
library was able to get me a copy of Aran Knitting much faster
anticipated, now I have to make some decisions!
