meg swansen's saddle shoulder aran
i have knitted my second saddle shoulder aran.
needles: 3½, 4 and 4½
yarn: 13 skeins of classic elite skye tweed, upland green (discontinued, argh how could they do this to us)
cables: ribbed cable, sheepfold, fishbone, staghorn plus twisted stitches in between cables. (back panel is actually stolen from alice starmore,s inishmore)
i enjoyed everything about knitting this cardigan and i really enjoy wearing it too. it has a very nice fit and i think it is both a sweater a feminine and a masculine sweater at the same time. it looks great on lanky men and even on more ample men if one can use that expression. the colour is very very unusual. it reminds me a bit of a nice indian curry or something like that. and it is not very photographable.
it is the second sweater i knitted from this pattern and i learned a lot from knitting the first. lots of things occured to me as i went. i will probably knit more of them in the future.
now i am knitting the fishtrap cardigan. that is a lovely knit as well and for the first time i am using yarn that meg and elizabeth recommends i.e. canadian regal. stay tuned.
