Does anyone know if Sarah Flaherty is still knitting Aran sweaters on Inishmore?

Good grief, just thinking about wearing an Aran jumper on a day like today is making me sweat...

I love the Aran sweaters/jumpers in the winter. (Not at the minute though). Next time I'm over I'm going to buy a few for Christmas presents as they always go down a treat.

Our weather is currently 80/27 degrees (3am) but we had a downpour yesterday that helped cool down things a little. (It was awful further up our Coast as well)

We were on the islands a couple weeks ago and I liked the items/designs/prices in the knit shop at don aonghasa. I think there are 3 shops there, but the one we liked the most had only aran knit items. The others I believe had more souvenier stuff and art items. Does anyone know the name of the store I am referring to and whether or not they sell items online?

I foolishly did not purchase some things I was interested in thinking we could either pick them up later at the sweater market in kilronan (which we never made it to) or that we could purchase them at the sweater factory on inis meain (not realizing that was a much different type of aran knit!)

Probably info about prices would be of more interest than weather forecasts!
