I’m on a roll with my Aaron’s Aran Sweater! Done with the main parts:
(Ha! I just realized the “front” is backwards. Sorry.) Now to the “finishing”, my very least favorite part. I even thought about trying to adapt the pattern so I wouldn’t have all that seaming to do, but then I realized that it would be a lot of work to do that. Plus, I will be teaching a class with this sweater and if I went and changed the pattern a whole bunch, that would be confusing for the participants. This will also be a great pattern for teaching how to knit a sweater and how to do the finishing. So there. I did it for the knitting students. Let’s see if I can actually get it finished so that I can actually offer it as a class.
