After knitting like crazy on my Peacock Feathers Shawl, I have temporarily abandoned it and am almost done with my aran knit sweater. The catalyst was learning that we would be moving from West Virginia to Michigan. While in West Virginia, I have been inspired to knit with cotton. After pondering the Michigan winters I have been inspired to return to warm winter objects.
I have finally finished the sleeves on my aran knit sweater. All that remains is to sew it up and knit the collar. The collar in this pattern is knit with straight needles. I have always knit collars in the round before and am tempted to do so with this one except I figured I should try this method just because it is new.
