Ok so it's not exactly the way the magazine shows, but I finally finished seaming it today! It needs some serious blocking (a bit short) but I love it! Oh, do I wash it before or after blocking?

Congratulations, it looks great! I have yet to knit an Aran sweater, though I did crochet one. When you block it will we get to see you in it?

Oh, I have that pattern in one of my magazines. I think the one I saw was pink but I love it in the blue color you picked out. Very good job! :cheering:

Thank you Lisa, it is pink in the mag, but I couldn't find the same pretty pink here in Patons, but if I make it again I may just use Plymouth Encore. So I don't hafta handwash :teehee:
