scarves and hats and sweaters, oh my!
I've been knitting up a storm! I feel like a have a bit of a handle on my Christmas knits now.

Still no modeling from Jim, so I'm posting the sweater anyway. Putting in the zipper was a PITA! I now have an intimate relationship with the seam ripper.

GAH!!! THAT SWEATER IS TO DIE FOR! I'm in LOVE!
Everything else is great too, but that sweater kinda steals the show.

Thanks Silver! That means a lot coming from you

It took forever though...took 27 skeins of Jo Sharp Silkroad Ultra and weighs a ton! I started it Oct. 6 and finished on Sunday. I worked on it an hour or two each night.

Oh man.. I can almost feel it... seriously, I have goosebumps thinking about it. I love the cozy feeling from a heavy sweater. What gem you've made. Just lovely!

AND JIM BETTER MODEL IT SOON!

Just in case anyone (Kristin!) is interested the pattern is in THIS Debbie Bliss book. It's actually a woman's pattern, but Jim loved the cables so much he didnt' care. Plus I got lucky...the yarn I wanted to use was a bigger gauge and the math worked out so I could just follow the instructions for the woman's small (he's 6'4" and has LONG arms. thus the amount of yarn.) For a woman's small it's only 15 balls aran weight.

Wow great stuff! And that sweater, the cables are amazing! I am nervous about tackling cables for fingerless mitts, but to do them in a sweater, wow.
