FO Aran sweater
I just finished an Aran sweater for my sister-in-law. It was worked from the top down with set in sleeves that were worked along with the body because I don't like sewing seams, especially fitted sleeves. I was completely winging it while deciding where and how to do the increases. Here is a close up of the sleeves in progress:


Here is the finished sweater. It is my own design, but not very original.

Beautiful. I love the look of Aran sweaters. You did a great job with the design. I have never attempted anything that complicated. I'm impressed.
