Love the Pinwheel !

I stumbled on this sweater pattern and all else came to a halt. Immediately ordered the yarn from Elann and can't wait for it to arrive. Was so excited to see this KAL!

Thannk you for starting the group! I, too, stumbled onto the pattern while researching Elizabeth Zimmerman's Pi shawl. I started my Pinwheel yesterday. I am using a mixture of variegated hand dyed yarn by Claudia and two shades of brown from Filatura Di Crosa's 501 line. I am just finishing up a very similar sweater that is a pattern my local yarn store, Gottaknit.net, adapted from the vogue fall 2005 cover sweater. However, I am just enthralled with the eyelets in the pinwheel. Has anyone though of doing a variation with a small lace or cable pattern in the sections (like with EZ's Pi are Squared shawl)? I have been knitting less than a year, but am fascinated by knitting patterns done in the round and have recently resolved to learn more! This is my first knit-along and I'm very excited. i am not completely clear of protocol so please let me know if i do anything "taboo". I also just started blogging about my knitting to go with my first knit-along. Any feedback would be highly appreciate! Cheers - Stephanie
