Ariann

I’m sneaking away from company to post this…ok, actually I have my company making me breakfast (and the same company is making me dinner – I know how to have the right company!).  So while my mushroom, onion and cheese omelet is cooking, and Larry makes fresh coffee and toast (honestly, its a really hard life but someone has to be spoiled in this house and I am ok with it being me).

On Thursday, around 2:30 in the afternoon….I finished.

Pattern:  Chic Knits Ariann
Started:  December 29, 2006
Finished:  April 5, 2007
Yarn:  Cascade 220  – I think the colorway was Chestnut Heather – but I can’t find the ball band.

I love the sweater – love it.   I’m so pleased that its cold this weekend so I can wear it (I’ve struggled to not wear it every single day but I’ll admit I’m wearing it today).  This is a great pattern – I highly recommend it.  In fact, I can see making another one – Cieara has asked for one too (which I was really really surprised at since we typically don’t like the same things).  But I love love love this sweater.  The sleeves are a bit long, but I do like them that way.  And I think I’ve mentioned (just once or twice) how much I like Cascade 220 – this is my absolute favorite yarn.  I love working with it, and I love the way it feels.

The color in the picture below is closest to the real color….I need to block it since the bottom is flipping up …but then I couldn’t wear it today so I’m ok with it flipping.

We are going to New Hope today – which is a little town on the border of PA and NJ that has lots of little shops, art galleries, restaurants.  Its a bit cold to be wandering around, but I will be warm and snuggly!  I’m hoping to talk Larry and my brother into a side trip to Twist (I can’t find the link and breakfast is almost ready so I need to publish).  I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and weekend!
