Knit Night

I Heart Aran Sweater
Knit Night is on Wednesdays and now that I’ve amassed a pretty nice collection of hand knits, I think share them here “in situ.” I finished this I Heart Aran sweater just in time to wear during our coldest months. I was looking for something that I could swap out with the Sweatshirt Sweater I knit last year — and wore nearly every day from December through February. I admired this sweater on another Knit Night pal and with her assurance that it was a straightforward knit, I requested appropriate yarn last Christmas and started knitting in October. Yesterday’s maiden voyage proved this will be the perfect addition to my winter sweater wardrobe.

The sweater close up. Here’s the Ravelry link to my project, and to the pattern from Tanis Fiber Arts.

I loved knitting this neck. It was so satisfying to pick up all the stitches and see the pretty ribbing grow, and to have it all turn out so neatly. Sewing knitting used to scare me. Now it doesn’t. Kitchener stitch is another story.

  1. Nice. Love the boots too. I’m going to start my first pair of toe up socks next week. Sweaters still scare me!
