Aran finish

Two years ago I started knitting myself an aran cardigan.
I was determined that I would get it finished before the year was out.
Everything else has been put to the side in order for me to focus on the grand finish.
Last week, I am proud to say I actually finished it.( yippee)
I am for the most part really pleased with it, but am a little disappointed on the length.
It could do to be a little bit longer but I have to say it will be nice and cuddly warm during these cold winter  months.
Not the best photo, but you get the idea.
In detail.


There is something very satifying about making your own things.
Now onto my next item, something for my youngest daughter. Mind you, it will be a simple , straight forward stocking stitch jumper.

Hope you are keeping warm.

  1. These photos don't do justice to your gorgeous cardy. You are right about the satisfaction of making your own things. Now you need to wear it with your corduroy skirt.

  2. beautiful work Ruth, I have knit many arans before but find they take so much time to make now that I lose interest but I've started one that my daughter wants and hopefully will have it finished for her for Christmas 2013!!!!!
