Frenzied Knitting

My latest project. I can't put it down.
Every now and then you get a project like this. One that you
can't stop working on for no particular reason. It's for me, and I don't have any special
occasion to wear it, but you would think by the way I'm working on it that I need it tomorrow. It's just fun and easy.

I made up the pattern, but you can see the design is a take on a pattern I did before
pictured below. The one below was featured on the monthly web magazine called
Magknits.com and it was a free pattern. That site is no longer up so I don't know where you
would find it now. Ravelry features it but the link leads nowhere.
It's called Trellis and Vine by Sauniell N. Connally and it's a lot of fun to make.
A great pattern for beginning knitters to learn a few new "moves".

Anyhow, my version is in aran weight as opposed to DK and it will be larger and warmer which is what I like. The yarn is Kraemer Yarns Naturally Nazareth and I'm liking it alot.

Check it out, then order it here.
(In case the links are not highlighted, click on the words "Kraemer Yarns"
and the word "here" to link to the yarn and the shop. I've noticed the
highlight function doesn't work well with these fancy templates.)

The designer has the pattern on her site. Look at the links on the right side. To get the PDF you have to register with a service [it's free albeit a bit annoying].
I've been trying to decide on a pattern for a shawl for my mom. This is definitely a possibility. Thanks.
