Little Aran Jumper

About 6 years ago I went through a non-knitting phase and decided to clean out and donate a bunch of knitting books to the library. OF COURSE I started knitting again as I always do and now I have to go to the library to get some of my books.....

This book is one of them and it is not available anywhere on the planet that I can find. It is an Australian book that I got at a yarn store about 10 years ago. Thank goodness I donated it to the library instead of selling or giving it away because now I can go back and get it when I want to. Which is exactly what I did this summer. I made the "Aran Jumper" and have had it completed for several months, but did not get the buttons on the shoulder band until a few days ago. I haven't blocked it and I don't think I will bother. An adorable sweater for I don't know who yet.
