The FLAK is done!!! I've not had a sweater fit me so well before and it isn't even blocked yet! The photo makes it look a bit out of square but it isn't really. I learned a lot making this sweater and look forward to making another one with different cables. I added cables down the side where a seam would have been under the arms if this hadn't been knitted in the round.
I've been skimming Janet's new Aran design book and an anxious to start a new Aran. However I WILL wait until I have finished the SFC Fair Isle. This FLAK took 8 skeins of 220 yard skeins of Cascade 220 in a royal blue type color. I would use this yarn again for an Aran as it does show the cables well.
80 degrees today in Maine so won't be using this sweater for awhile. Will get it blocked and ready for fall. Thanks for all the encouragement and participation from the FLAK group.
