Mint Green Aran Sweater


Well I have Finished the Aran Sweater I was working on, have managed to complete it with the Month which I am rather pleased about.

The photo don't show the colour as well as I would like as it a nice Baby Mint Green, the yarn is Robin Baby Aran yarn it came in 400 grm balls & I have done this with 2 balls with some left over.

Now I have done a large garment i will go back to some socks, I want to experiment with trying out & doing some Trainer socks for DH i have some yarn left from a pair of socks I have knitted him so am thinking of using that but doing the heel & toe in black yarn just to make sure I have enough yarn as these will be experimental ones I am not too worry, I do think I can possible get 2 pairs of trainer socks from one ball as there is always yarn over from the ball when I have done a pair of socks & I know I am just a little short when i tried doing 2 pairs of socks for me from a ball, so keep watching this Blog for the results

Your Aran came out beautiful. I love making these sweaters in "non-classic" colors.

Great job!

Janice,
You did a beautiful job! I don't usually do pullovers. I loved the design and stitches. Very nice job!

Oh I grew up with Arans and absolutely love them (Welsh family). You've used a beautiful pattern in a lovely colour.

What a beautiful sweater! Love the color & the design! Is it for you or a baby? I couldn't tell from your blog.

Trainer socks? What are trainer socks, are they sports socks? Can't wait to see them

Your sweater is absolutely beautiful. The color looks good to me. I know what you are saying about photos not really transfering the true color sometimes. However, I must say I look better in photos than how I look sitting here right now...no matter what color the photo shows!!
