  1. It’s CUTE!
    I have a question. Where do you get your authentic Aran knitting wool? I went to the UK: the land of sheep and goats, in search of some authentic yarn. They sold Aran sweaters in cotton, synthetic, and wool synthetic blends knitted by machine in China. There was not one single store that sold yarn, patterns, or knitting supplies.

    1. Thank you!
      I’m sorry to hear about your experience! Where did you go in the UK? I know there are plenty of yarn shops there that deal in real wool yarn. I don’t know where you are in the US, but online you could try Harrisville yarns, Webs (yarn.com), Jimmy Beans, ad lots of different farms have websites where they sell their yarn.


    2. I’m in the UK and would agree there aren’t many yarn shops and when you find them they are often just stocking cotton or acrylic mix. I don’t know if you want to buy specifically from the UK Aran weight yarn but I can recommend New Lanark Spinning Aran weight yarn. It’s 100% wool spun at their antique water powered mill. I have a jumper, bag, mittens and a 2nd jumper in progress using it. It wears extremely well but isn’t very soft but I love it.

  2. Oh, this looks great! And yes… if you want to actually wear the sweater by Halloween, you definitely need to be knitting it already. (At least, you would if you were me. I’m not a fast enough sweater knitter to wait before casting on themed sweater patterns. 😉 )

  3. I love it! I think the variegated is fun. Next year I want to make another one with cats using Nightshades for the main color. And maybe I’ll dye some Daylights for the contrasting colors.
