I am very excited to announce that the I Heart Aran patter is officially available for purchase on my website and on Ravelry! This is my first sweater pattern and I am very happy to finally be able to share my completed vision with you all. You may remember me blogging about it still being a WIP back in February. After a few months and several tweaks to the pattern to get it exactly how I wanted it, it's ready for prime time!
I owe a very big thank you to my mom for test knitting the pattern for me. She did a great job! She knit hers in a new colourway called 'Dove,' look for it to launch on the website this weekend. And another big thank you to Julie for tech editing and cheering me on through countless e-mails.
