Join the Japanese Aran Knitalong

edited: Dec. 22, 2005
The Knitalong will begin January 1, 2006. Cara of will be setting up a knitalong blog so members only can post their progress there.

We will be knitting from a Japanese language pattern book. The aran cardigan pattern:
Am KaminThe pattern book is call "nitsuto ni koishite shimada toshiyuki no se ta butsuku dentou nitsuto no atarashii densetsu ~ by shimada toshiyuki"
a.k.a. New Style of Heirloom Knitting
ISBN: 4529039927
Here is the initial info she posted about it.

I ordered the pattern book from and it took a about a week to arrive from California.

It has 17 gorgeous designs. Here are some of the pics.

Check out Mary's
swatches . She made them even before she received the pattern book. And she provides a sample of the
Swatch Chart she used too. Awesome!

edit: I've joined two discussion groups that touch on this pattern. Recently there were discussions about yarn choices, questions on swatching and resizing the pattern. You can join them at Aranknit Yahoo Group, Knitting Beyond the Hebrides list
