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.
