Yankee Knitter Adult Aran Sweater

Started: November 2005
Finished: January 16, 2006
Knit smallest size (34?) using 6 skeins of Patons Classic Wool in "Tree Bark Mix"

Modifications: Omitted ribbing from cuffs and hem and added turtleneck.

Comments: I wanted to make a fitted aran (I don't remember why), but I'm not really happy with the way this turned out. The upper sleeves are huge and a little too short. To compensate, I picked up stitches at the cuff and added 1 inch of moss stitch, but I still don't like them. I feel like a wee chubette in this sweater. The yarn was really nice to work with, and I like the color, which is greener in real life. (Try photographing a green sweater when everything in your yard is green!)
