WIP – Midsummer Aran Sweater

Friends, I have a problem. A knitting problem, in case you hadn’t figured that out. I was going along just fine, getting some work done on projects that I actually have to finish, when I got the new Interweave Knits Magazine in the mail. I fell in love with EVERY SINGLE PROJECT, but especially the Midsummer Aran (photo from the Interweave magazine):

I love this color, and the yarn is really soft, so I’m looking forward to being able to test it out. I also love that it’s knit in one piece to the arms – seams can be useful in construction but generally they’re a pain, especially when lace is involved. I’m a perfectionist (as are most knitters), and I will obsessively take out and re-sew a seam if the lace panels don’t match. The middle cable is beautiful, and now that the husband sweater is all done, I needed a new cable project:

I’m so excited to finish it! And after that…I’ll be making every other pattern in this issue :P.

    • Thank you! I just can’t pull off that color green, it is NOT a good color on me :P. It got pushed back with graduation gifts to be made, but I’m planning on working on it for the plane trip back :).
