This Project; Thick and Buttery...




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.

Oh I so agree with you Carolyn. Fisheman's yarn is so good for just the thing you describe.

I love sweaters out of this type of wool. I have picked up a few at resale shops.

Is it really waterproof, fisherman's wool?? I should try making one now that I can wear sweaters again with my discovery of girdles!

Nice knit. But it's not too hot to work on?

That's going to be the perfect snuggling sweater. Love the simple, classic color you're using.

I'm a little behind here, but your shadow cable vest turned out great! It looks downright glamorous in the shot with the pearls. :) And such a pretty color.
