Finn's Aran

A quick aside to show Finn's Aran, complete all but the buttons:

I have lined the hood with some cotton jersey, a lovely vintage Pooh Bear left over from some baby suits I made for Ellie and Luke, to counteract any scratchiness from the Bainin:

I took the inspiration for the patterns from the Clan Aran I knit for Finn's dad, Jos, modifying them to make them daintier for the smaller jacket. Although I must admit Finn's got a bit of growing to do, before he'll fit into it - but at the rate he's feeding, I don't think that will be too long!! ;)
A close-up of the patterns:

Now I just have to find some nice 'leather' or wooden buttons to finish it off. So I'm back to finishing my Rowan 30th Anniversary Bag.

No more blogging before the w/e, because we're off househunting in the New Forest!

  2. That's a really beautiful sweater, heirloom quality.
