  • I’ve just cast on Baldric. It’s a lovely pattern. Can’t wait to wear it!

  • There’s plenty of Weekenders using Aran weight.

  • I’m finding myself enchanted with sweaters made with this weight yarn this fall. Going on my needles this week are Alanis by Elizabeth Smith Knits and Ash in Plain and Simple by Pam Allen. With all this heat and humidity in Kentucky, I can’t wait for fall!

    • And I love my Hadley!

    • Boy do I hear ya! Middle Tennessee is lush n lovely n HUMID right now …

  • I made the Nurtured sweater for my daughter. It turned out beautiful. I’m going to make one for myself. But first I’m going to do the Weekender. Too many patterns, not enough time!

  • Another great option is Mondo Cable Cardi by Bonne Marie Burns.

    • I love all of your suggestions! Thank you so much for sharing them! 🙂

    • I have been pondering which sweater will be my *first ever* and now I’m thinking it’s down to the Baldric and Felix

      • I have sworn off sweaters. I have sworn off sweaters for a little while. Dang it…Winterburn & Wainright have me mesmerized ❤️

    • I love all you folks, but “fast” and “sweater” represent an oxymoron for me. I enjoy watching knitters who are able to click at warp speed, but I am not one of them. Click on sisters, and brothers…I think I’ll stick to socks.

  • Thank you for all of the wonderful ideas! I fell in love with each one as I viewed it and read your comments, but Gabrielle by Leila Raabe is my favorite, no question about it!

  • Love scouting. Remarkably, or not, some of these are on my list already. I know Deschain; now Gabrielle is on the list, too. And Felix. Thank you.

  • Loving the Gabrielle!

  • Both Nurtured and Felix have my heart! Decisions…Decisions…

  • Hi, all. Has anyone used this yarn in a man’s sweater pattern, and if so, what might you recommend?
