FO: Big Sister Aran
Pattern: Aran Pullover from Knitting for Baby [Ravelry Project Page]
Size: 24 months for my niece Frances
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton in Bone
Mods: just subbing the Organic Cotton for the superwash wool called for
Like the model? She really did pose for this one, which is actually for my niece rather than Isobel, though Miss Is wants one now. I just don't think I can knit another cabled sweater in cotton for a while, though, so I will have to find another yarn. My gauge wasn't spot on, but that's OK. This is a sweater to grow into and then out of (my niece did so with her first one, which is now being worn by her baby brother). Great pattern - this is the fourth time I've made one. Can't wait to meet my nephew and hope to get a picture of both kids in their Aran Pullovers over Thanksgiving.
