A is for Aran - 4th finish

A is for Aran. This is the first letter in a
alphabet series by Brookes Books. As
one of my stitching projects I picked
out for this year - I will complete each
letter. This was a challenge - lots of
beads with a lot of off white colors
along with white. Really like her designs.
Now, what is Aran - Of course it looked like
a sweater so I did a search and this is
a breif description - Aran Islands is a

place where they make hand knit sweaters-
click here for the full description.
I did learn something making this first letter.

I love how it turned out. The beads are great and so is the "cable knit" stitch.

It's very pretty. And such a lot of beads too!

Very cute- nice finish!

Christine said...

That is sweet. Aran knitting is characterised by its textures and cables and the design captures that perfectly

Carol said...

Oh, so pretty, Cindy! That does look like a lot of work, but the beads finish it off so beautifully... Good luck with stitching all of the letters this year :)

Very pretty, Cindy! We are about 1/2 hour from one of the Aran Islands. Beautiful stitching, reminiscent of a beautiful place.

that is really cute ... is this an Irish alphabet pattern or how come they chose Aran, not exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think "A" :-)
