Hello and welcome! My FO today is near and dear to my heart--my second ever Aran jumper! It took me about 5 months to knit (off and on) and I finished it way back in March and didn't get around to posting it (due to the move). So here she is, in all her cabled glory!
My first Aran knit was a project I finished for my Mum-in-law for my Grandma, I posted about it here. I had so much yarn left over, that I decided I'd make a sweater for myself. I call it my feed mill sweater, because I plan on it keeping me warm during work in the winter. One of the many layers I'll be wearing.
It is a free pattern, raglan aran pullover, by Hayfield. I loved knitting this, and I even liked that it was sewn. There is something so satisfying about finishing a section and starting the next. I wasn't too sure about the first at first, because it is shorter than a traditional Aran jumper, but I've grown to really like it. The yarn is Hayfield bonus tweed. I did have to buy a small amount to finish, but really, I needed less than 100g's to do so.
If you haven't ever knit an Aran jumper, I do recommend it. It is so very addictive and fun!
