I began working on Interweave's Aran Placed Cable this past weekend with my leftover Fisherman's Wool. I like how it's coming out so far.
This will be a real winter sweater. The type of aran worn more for keeping warm rather than being fashionable. I have a bunch of arans from my Michigan winters.
For me there is something calming about knitting with a fisherman's wool. Maybe it's because I find the color soothing, perhaps because I've knitted so many over the years. I like this pattern so much, I may make another one before the year is done.
