January: Aran Sweater

The first project in EZ's "Knitter's Alamanc" is an Aran sweater.

I have some lovely local worsted that I am going to use. I bought eight skeins at SAFF a few years ago and it has been waiting for a project.

My sweater will be a cardigan. I wear these more than pullovers and really want a cream colored one.

Tonight I am going to start the swatch piece and see if I can get the gauge I need... From how I see it, I will have to knit about four inches every day to finish this by the end of the month. That will give me three days to work up my courage to cut the sweater to sew in the sleeves and another three days to recover...


  1. This is beautiful! I can only knit simple, non-tailored things.

  2. This is a lovely project Matty. An Aran cardigan will take you anywhere.
