This is finished now, so be sure to look at the last post if you want to see the FO.
Now I have to do an Aran for my husband for Christmas. It is the only type of sweater he likes to wear. I expect I will only have it half done, but I had to finish the one for my sister-in-law, which started out for my husband but morphed into one for her. I am tired of doing single color knitting and have been dying yarn and making swatches for a stranded cardigan for myself, but that will have to wait until after I finish my husband's sweater.
For those who have seen certain web sites where people who design their own projects and have such fantastic drawings of how they want the projects to look and say "I could never do that" here are my swatches and plan for the sweater:
Not such fantastic drawings, I am sure all of you could do at least as well, but they give the idea. I think I will semi fit the sleeves, but not nearly as much as the last sweater since fitted sleeves aren't as important for a man, in my opinion.
Here is a picture of the sweater so far, with only the ribbing done. I am working it from the bottom up.
What is that on the floor? It is a lazy Susan with a bowl on it to hold my yarn. This is my answer to twisting yarn. I just spin the lazy Susan with my foot from time to time to keep the yarn untwisted!
I am editing this because I just realized I wrote WOP instead of WIP! Next time I will get it right.
