Did it work out? I want to see your pattern or a photo of what you're working on.

Good luck with your new stitches! You've already got the cable stitch accomplished in your lovely masculine scarf, so you're one up on that one. An Aran Sweater is such an ambitious project - I look forward to seeing it in progress and when you're done. It will be just lovely!

For better or worse I've decided to not to the Aran Sweater as it's too complex and requires so much silence when knitting. I am, however, now doing a raglan sweater that's a much easier cable pattern (see under what'cha knitting, too). I will, in time, get back to the Aran Sweater once I'm more experienced.

David, I've been there, done that, too! If a knit is causes too much trouble, why bother? There are too many designs to choose from, designs that are just as handsome, but much more fun to knit!

I think you have the skill set to knit this Aran Sweater, but I concur with your decision to move on to the other Cable and Rib pullover. I'd do the same thing.
