DH Project
I just received an email from DH, it is a riding suit. Obviously should be knit in wool, perhaps a merino blend

Ya think? I suggest the scratchiest acrylic possible! Oh, I know, Phentex! It doesn't stretch. I'm sure it would be very scratchy and much cheaper than wasting good wool.

Does your DH wants you to make this for him? *additional comments bleeped as this is a family friendly site*

If he sticks twigs in it he could use it as a Ghillie suit, like they do in the military for camoflauge.

DH told me if I started knitting it now, he could wear it in his coffin because he wouldn't expect me to finish it before then

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

Oh my! This man-body-sweater is hilarious! Seriously? Someone actually knit this thing?

Well I tell ya, if I was hiking in the woods, and happened upon a man in this getup,
I'd run for my life! The Yeti lives!
