A New Project

So, it's been a while since I've started an exciting new knitting project, but today is the day - I've ordered the yarn and paid for it - gulp (yarn is rather expensive these days) and today it has arrived and I can't wait to get started. I'm going to turn this

Into this

and I literally cannot wait - I have been desperate to knit something meaty for ages but hadn't found anything that tickled my fancy - then I came across this pattern and it was love at first sight. Now I know, you may say, what use will I have for an aran patterned cardigan here in Oman where, even in the winter it hardly ever gets below 20 degrees C - and I know, you are right - but hey - what the heck - I haven't knitted myself a cosy cardy in coming on for 7 years and it just has to be done - so to heck with it - I'm doing it and if I can only wear it in the house with the air con on full - so be it !!!!

Can't wait x
