I'm currently knitting Christian an Aran sweater in a pattern I designed. Well, I didn't design the actual sweater pattern, Vogue did that, but I did design the center panel.
I'm a moron:
While cabling isn't difficult, good God almighty is it time-consuming. I'm further along with it now than in this picture, but I'm scared of armhole shaping so I'm taking a break while I learn some music I have to sing this weekend.
It's turning out beautifully, however. I taught myself how to correct cabling mistakes several rows later. It's fancy.
After a long, happy and fulfilling life and when it's time for his final journey, Christian will be buried in this sweater.
