FO - Aran Sweater


So my UFO is finally finished after approximately 5 years. The sweater was supposed to have a crewneck. I knitted it and liked the neck so much the way it was that I did not fold it over and tack it in place.

This sweater was knitted with Patons Classic Merino in a forest green that they don't seem to make any more. I have about 6 skeins left which means that I overbought. I never recorded how much I used though and I don't remember. I will have to think of another project for the rest of the yarn.

For my next sweater I wanted to knit Leaves in Relief from Knitty. I think I might use Patons Merino in sage this time. The merino is so soft that you can wear it next to your skin which I usually can't do with wool.
