NaKniSweMo Day 30 (or) I Win

Coming in at a total of 67,886 stitches, I’ve completed my Aran with little time to spare.  Luckily, I had someone on hand to model the finished garment (and think about waffles in the process).  I’m overall pleased with the finished item, I’m only concerned about the sleeves being long enough.

This is the Aran for Frederick – something that has been in my queue for a couple of years.  It was delightful to knit, even with the miscrossed cable disasters.  I’ll give more of a background to this sweater after it is in the hands of the recipient, but know that it is a huge relief to me for it to have been completed.

The yarn is Berrocco Vintage in color 5175 (so original).  I adore this yarn.  It’s wonderful for projects that are going to see a lot of use, since it’s wool and acrylic, washable, but soft and warm.

And, now that November is over, I don’t want to pick up a set of needles for a few days.  I don’t really want to touch yarn for a while.  This was a lot more intense than I anticipated.
