Thank you all! :blush: You're so kind.

Amber - I think the guy in it is pretty cute too. ;)

schrodinger - The scarf pattern is a pretty simple K&P that the proprietress of my LYS designed, I'll rummage my notebooks and post it. :D

WOW!!! Everything looks sooo great! I am in love :inlove: with those green socks! Can you tell me what yarn and pattern you used for them please?

Thank you so much! You warm my :heart: . :D

Earthchick, yep, that's The Manly Sweater from SNB1. I used Cascade 220, and have completely fallen in love with it. So soft.

Kaye, I used Opal sock yarn for the green socks. It's awesome. A whole pair plus leftover from one ball. The pattern is from their company, a friend brought it to me from a yarn store in New Zealand! But I don't think you have to go that far... I'll see if I can find it online for ya. :lol:

I found the pattern, but I have an attack of conscience - the bottom of the page says no part of the pattern can be reproduced without permission from Carol. :( I'm sorry to be a tease, but I don't want to violate her copyright. If you want, I can PM you her phone number, and I'm sure she'd email it to you.

What is Peter Jackson's younger, better lookin' brother doing in your sweater?!? :lol:

LOVE the sweater! And that scarf. I may have to get you to PM me your LYS proprietress' phone number so that I can get a coyp of that pattern. :)

I noticed that too: he does look just like Peter Jackson!

The socks and scarf are lovely, but the sweater wins the OMG award for its loveliness! And it's your first?! :notworthy: :notworthy:

Everything is awesome, but I have to agree with the others on the sweater! Very nice.
