New Aran

I was playing on Ravelry and came across a great pattern from Jane Thornley.  It is called Green Before the Gold and is a free download.  Think Tent Sale.  You can buy one ball each of a bunch of fun yarns and make a WOW garment.

Some days writing a blog post comes very easy and other days it is extremely hard.  Today is a hard day.  The computer has been set aside all afternoon and I have been making kits and knitting.  Wild Saffron needed some attention.  I have 51 rows left to finish the back.  Just over a month until the Knitter's Fair!  I need to get working on both my knitting and the booth.

Tweed yarns are hot this season. Naturally brings us a New Zealand made tweed yarn in aran weight. Aran Tweed is a roving yarn with twist applied. It is soft against the skin with all the warmth of merino wool.
There is a great pattern in the new book for a cabled cardigan with interesting shaping.

And from the front.

Now it is time to move upstairs and knit.  I am into the tenth repeat on Malthese.  I think this will be the last repeat and then the top border.  This means that cutting could be happening next week.
