Aran progress

Aran_front
Sophie couldn’t help herself … just had to be in the picture and attack my sweater. I had to pry it out of her paws after this photo.

This is the front. The back is about half done (and looks the same).

It’s coming along ok. When I hold it against my body it almost looks like a corset … very stiff.  The yarn should soften when washed, at least that’s what happened with the swatch.

After the sleeves are finished I’ll start the gansey swatch.

  1. Looks great! It is making me excited to come home and get mine started!
    I am still undecided on what cables I am going to use.
    That Sophie is a little rascal!

  2. What wonderful looking knitting. I like the design of the cables that you’ve created. I can’t wait to see the finished product.

  3. I is a beautiful Aran. I like the way you broke up the larger side cables to make the smaller ones. The whole design hangs together. I look forward to seeing what you do with the assymmetry of the sleeves.
