Ta Da!!!!!

Yes it is finally done. Julie's Aran pullover. I just have to get the buttons this week.
The front.

The back.

Yarn: Naturally Harmony 10 ply
100% NZ Merino 15 balls.
Needles: 4.5mm

This yarn was so nice to knit with. It doesn't have a tight spin so I could spit splice the ends together and there was no weaving in of the ends.

I also finished and felted my French Market bag.

Yarn: 3-50g balls of Naturally Tussock 10 ply
(deep purple with tweed effects, hard to see in the picture)
1-100g ball of Patons Classic ( leftover)

Needles: 5mm

This pattern from Knitty.com was great to knit too, perfect if your looking for a fairly quick knit. It fits my 10 balls of yarn for the next project and a ball of sock yarn. I decided to make it because I can leave my work in it and just pick it up and go.
Both these yarns can be purchased at Julie's store or on line at her website.
As you can see, I received my Interweave Knits in the mail today. So I'm down for the count with my mag and my Timmy's and thinking about my next project.

And so my friends I leave you with gratuitous child and dog shots.

Julie's aran looks wonderful. You really are a great knitter. I like your marketbag too. How cute and versatile.

You did a great job Rhonda! I look forward to seeing the sweater when I work the day of the Knitters' Fair. The FMB looks great - I'll definitely print off the pattern for that one.

I have bee4n watching that sweater grow- it is absolutely fabulous- it might even tempt me back to aran knitting!!! I also have a request- we are going to a wedding at the War Plane Heritage Museum in a couple of weeks- know of any good places to stay overnight? I haven't a clue as to what is decent and what is not. Thanks! (deb.sean@sympatico.ca)
