FO: Lil' Gentleman's Sweater
The title says it. I made a 'grown up' sweater for my son. I asked him "to look busy" and these are the photos I got. The raglan line is a bit strange because I used kfb increase, and it's a bit raised... I didn't like it at first but then made peace with it. The yarn is 60% wool, 40% alpaca, brought from Ukraine last May. I had to buy a new travelling bag because I discovered that natural fibre yarns are so much cheaper there

Also, it took me a year (A YEAR!) to finish it when I was working full-time and studying part-time. (Now I am in school full-time). Also, this is the first big-ish project with Sport weight yarn and 3 mm needles. Now I feel much more comfortable with fine yarns thanks to this little sweater.











Thanks for looking!
