About two years ago, I got the urge to knit myself a sweater.  Winters in Northeast Ohio can be pretty cold and I needed something other than the Aran sweater I purchased in Ireland 20 years ago.  Despite my limited knitting skills I had some grandiose ideas about a complicated pattern.  Let’s just say those quickly got tossed as I struggled to make progress.

When a year went by with little to no advancement on the project, I finally got going and made it a goal to get it finished.  Problem is, I finished it last week…just as the hot, muggy weather hit. 

The pattern is very basic; the yarn is Jo Sharp Silk Aran Tweed and at least it fits.  So here I am, modeling the sweater with shorts on.

Now that it’s finished, I’ve put it away in my winter clothes drawer.  I’ll probably forget about it until the weather turns cold again.  Then it will be a welcome surprise when I’m looking for something to keep me warm.
