Thank you, cristeen! The yarn is Universal Classic Worsted Tapestry; it's an acrylic/wool blend.

Great sweater!

How did you like the Universal Classic Worsted Tapestry? I have some stashed but have never used it.

Thank you, ah!

I like knitting with it, the sweater turned out cushy. I did find if my needles tips were somewhat sharp, the yarn would easily split. I haven't washed the sweater yet and do hope that it will soften up a bit.

When I bought the yarn, I thought it was plain ole' varigated. Fun to start seeing a pattern emerge!

My grandson tried on the sweater today and it fits!

How fun to find that the sweater fits as well as looks terrific! Kudos on being brave enough to try it. And even more for succeeding so spectacularly!
