I just finished knitting this sweater for my dad it was a lot of fun, I used a pattern from my local yarn shop, but the add on (the fair isle part) was from a magazine. (I can check which one if anyone wants to know) and the v-neck I added on myself because I thought it would look better. here is a link to the pictures!

That is your first sweater?! :thud:

And so sweet that you made it for your Daddy. I love that fair-isle motif. Hmm, I feel like calling my Daddy . . .

And your Anthropologie capelet looks fabulous!

Thanks for the fabulous coments everyone. Yeah he does seem pleased in it, hence the making it for him rather than my fiance! Lol. But now I am out of projects I am going to have to think of something new to do.
