The talk was a kind of rehearsal for a talk I am giving at the Guild Convention in Derby, later this month. I don't want to say too much about the talk, and give away the plot, or it might spoil the surprise. But I shan't take to Derby all the sweaters that I had last night - I need to take my own things for the weekend as well. So I can show an Aran sweater that I'm not planning to take to Derby:
It's a man's sweater, very bulky, though not as heavy as it looks. We know the pattern that was used to knit it: Sirdar 2018, issued in 1962. Although it's about 50 years old, it looks up-to-date - if you saw it in a knitting magazine now, you wouldn't assume it was a vintage design.
In the early 60s, spinners don't seem to have made their minds up about the thickness of yarn appropriate for Arans. Here's another Sirdar pattern, issued in about 1960, for an Aran sweater in double knitting yarn - much finer than Supreme. "Aran" did not become a term for a standard yarn weight in the UK, as well as a sweater style, until some years later.
