A Pleasant Diversion
Not much to show on Aran Go Round, so I'll amuse you with this lovely jacket from the latest Peruvian Connection catalog:

The jacket

Jacket detail

Isn't it gorgeous? It looks so easy to make -- it's knit horizontally, with drop shoulders. The sleeves appear to be knit horizontally as well. The yarn used in the catalog version is composed of baby alpaca and wool. The jacket retails for $169. Looks like a pretty lightweight yarn -- maybe Baby Cashmerino would work for this?

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery … so I'm gonna sign off like Kerstin of At My Knit's End and Marcia of Purls Before Swine. Those girls rhyme real good:

See ya tomorrow. Not gonna borrow. Can't have no sorrow. Pack up my wheelbarrow. RockStar will play his guitar-o.
