WIP Wednesday – An Aran For J

IMG_2586

With the weather cooling off here and just a tinge of color appearing on leaves, thoughts turn to warm wooly things and cozy sweaters.

A friend had asked if I would be interested in knitting an Aran sweater for her son and I jumped at the chance.  I love knitting cables had the prefect pattern in mind.  Ever since I received a copy of Jane Austen Knits 2011, I have been itching to knit An Aran For Frederick by Kathleen Dames .  The meandering and twisty cables in the center panel, the shape and style of the sweater, and all that wonderful texture … makes for a dreamy pattern! I’ve got  a few inches done and am loving the way that it looks.  It is going to be such a wonderfully cozy sweater!

What have you been working on lately?  Started knitting a pattern that you’ve been dreaming about for a while?  I’d love to hear!
