Na Craga

I wanted a classic Aran for ages and bought this yarn called Navia at the sale, it´s mixture of faroese, shetlandic and australian lambs wool. A nice 3 ply that knits nicely on needles 4,5.
I borrowed Alice Starmore´s book at the library and will soon add it to my own library. I fell in love with this model instantly and even though this yarn is thicker than my usual preferences I like knitting with it. I payed 200 dkr for 20 balls. a very good price!

Beautiful work. I think I have a couple of Alice Starmore's books - fascinating artistry, but a little bit beyond my abilities and patience. I am glad to see that you are not afraid to tackle an Aran sweater!
