FINALLY I finished my first sweater. I promised it to the hubby for Thanksgiving... then Christmas... then mid-January.... he finally got to wear it for Valentine's Day. :cheering:

Very cool! What yarn and pattern did you use?

The yarn was Cascade, Jewel Hand-Dyed, Color #9894. It's actually a darker green than it appears in the photo. The pattern was a Brunswick pattern, Choice Classics (884), from a friend, which actually shows six neckline choices. Mine is the single neckband pattern.

Yes, it takes more work than I realized... at least for me. I was really excited at first and then I couldn't wait to get the darn thing done and off the needles! But I LOVE seeing the hubby wearing it and knowing that I knitted all those stitches. xxx
Thank you to everyone who posted a reply--it gives me a warm feeling inside... or maybe it's the wine I'm drinking!

Thanks for the compliments, Webigail! Taking orders?
:roflhard:
No, I don't think so. I'm sticking to small projects for a little while and who knows if I'll ever commit to the time for another sweater... takes me a awhile!

Okay, here's the "lucky guy" who has a wife to knit him a sweater... at least ONE... and many, many scarves.

Beautiful! The first picture makes it look silver! Must husband is silver-haired and has been asking for a silver sweater to make his hair shine. The green is really pretty, however, and looks wonderful on your guy!

You did a wonderful job. I'm sure your hubby loves it.

I can't wait to get stuff completed for my DH so he can wear it around. Though I too knit slow so I don't think I'd have a sweater done in time for him to wear it this winter.
