Egan

Irish Ewe Aran - Nep - Wool
4mm (us5) & 5mm (us7) Denise Circular Needles
For Wooly
Wooly requested that the neck be the satin stitch roll to compliment the nautical theme - Crab Stitch Cable and Trinity Stitch which looks like barnacles. I changed the Long Cable (10 sts) to 'cross' on the 7th of 12 rows, instead of the 1st, so it wouldn't bulk at the rib.
He loves it because it's warm and lumpy bumpy. He wanted it noted that photos add 50 pounds and that he's starting his diet immediately. LOL! ;)
Other Clan Arans I have made him include:
Mahoney
Clan Aran's yarn
This one was made from the kit. We love their yarn - thick & soft!

O'Shaughnessey - Jamieson's Aran in Navy

I did this one with the satin stitch roll neck too. This one is still my all time favorite!

Now that we're done with Egan, it's back to being all about me... until Wooly decides to order again. Did I mention he has his own yarn stash?! He needs to learn how to knit...!

Happy Knitting! Hope you're knitting for yourself! :)

Another success.

He looks amazing in your creations- it must be a pleasure to knit for him.

Wow, it's such a beautiful sweater (and a handsome model, too). I keep hoping that the Marine!Goth will eventually realize the Aran sweater love so I can knit for him again.

Great finish, and I will be ordering from ClanAran on your recommentation sometime soon.
