A is for Aidez
To start, I would like to A-cknowledge ARLEE BIRD!
Thank you for this challenge! Thank you for something to be excited and enthusiastic about!!
In April 2012, I placed pattern in my Ravelry library called Aidez. "Aidez is a feminine fitted cardigan that has all the cozy antique appeal of traditional Aran texture." These words were a perfect knitters seduction.....feminine, cozy, texture. I looked the pattern over several times hoping that one day I would have the nerve to take it on.
On January 16 of this year I got an email from my LYS (local yarn store) the Black Purl. The spring knit along was the Aidez. I knew my time was here. I took my gift card the family gave me for my birthday and picked out my yarn. A beautiful wool in an oatmeal/grey color. I would have slept with the yarn under my pillow to keep it close if my hubby had let me!
I started my project on February 13th. So far it has 2 arms, a left front and half of a right front! It is cozy with beautiful cables and has really been an enjoyable endeavor. I hope that as April comes to a close I will be able to celebrate completing by first cardigan and my first A-Z challenge!
