Aruba is Done!

The Aruba Beach sweater is now off the needles! Done! Although the original plans were to embellish the sweater with beads, I like it as is. So, plans have changed, and I am currently thinking of designs for a necklace to wear with it. I also see this with a long tan tunic top, a short or long tube skirt, tights or leggings, and boots (not the nylon undergarment and white jeans). ...Stylin'!

This creation is the result of a knit-a-long conceived on Ravelry's Jane Thornley group. We were asked to come up with a summer travel destination, and re-create it in a project. Thinking beaches, I found an image of the beautiful white sand and greenish-blue waters of Aruba. I used Jane's Scotian Meadow Wrap pattern as a starting
point, and then switched stitching and turned a ragged rectangle into a sweater with long sleeves.


  1. You look great in it. I love the colors and the pattern and the texture. Great job!

  2. Hi Mardi, And now I've discovered your wonderful blog! Thanks so much for visiting mine! I just love your sweater - the color palette, the flow, the redesign of Jane's wrap - beautiful!

  3. Ooh, I love praises! Thanks!
