Aran Dance

I had a wonderful evening knitting on Tuesday knitting with my new friend Michelle at the local coffee shop. I met Michelle in cyberspace through blogland, and then discovered that she practically lives within walking distance. She is new to this area, and I'm so glad she's here!
Michelle thought I should downsize the sweater for Baby L, so I redesigned the pattern. It's now about 2-1/2 inches smaller in circumference. Here's the progress, having started over.

It's a little slow-going because I lost my favorite gull-wing cable needle (again) and am using a toothpick as a (poor) substitute. I tried a dpn, but even the short ones are too long. Hoping to pick up a new gull-wing soon.

That's so sweet! Your sweater looks beautiful, that baby will love it (or at least the parents will!)

That pattern is impressive. Congratulations to you for making it work. So great to have a knitting friend that understands the code peculiar to knitting-ssk, k2tog, psso
and the pain one endures making the decision to start a project over, even though one might get away with a minor error.
