:cheering: :yay: :woohoo: :happydance: :woot:

I cast on the sleeves looong ago in May - then summer came and I put it away (and even failed to post here for months!) but when the weather changed I pulled it out and just finished tonight!

Without further ado, please take a look at my handsome dh in Durrow! Knit with Knit Picks Swish, and pattern (which is available on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/durrow)) modified to knit in the round as much as possible:

It's beautiful!!! He ain't half bad, either!

Beautiful sweater! I love the color, and the cables on the sleeve. Hubby looks very proud!

Thanks so much all!

This was my first adult sweater, and dh picked the color himself, but I love it with his red beard! He doesn't wear jackets much, really prefers to wear sweaters so having a custom sweater does mean a lot to him. :heart:

I love the colour too.
Such a nice sweater.... so glad you were able to find the time.... did I read that correctly - you are homeschooling 3 children....?! And still finding time to knit?!
Wow! I'm impressed....!

To Knit or not to Knit, that is the question.

Thanks! Great work! And thanks so much for the link to your Ravelry! I was able to acquire the free pattern through the Ravelry Durrow page! What a great sweater! I've added it to my Queue! As if it's not long enough already!

Your DH looks fabulous, and very happy with his new sweater!

That's a fine looking sweater, I'm sure he'll wear it with pride. :thumbsup:

Great job - perfect fit! He looks happy to wrapped in the sweater you knit for him - kinda like a nice big hug he can carry with him.

Durrow sounds what? Irish? Your hubby looks like he could be a little Irish too. I know what you mean about how pleased he is to have a custom made sweater. My hubby is like that too. More earthy, huh? Looks very nice on him, he picked a nice color.

Merigold, yep, Irish roots on both counts!

Both he and the sweater look great!

Homeschooling was great fun, and I got a lot of crocheting done at the kitchen table.
