FO--Sweater
A lot of you have already seen this but I had to post again since I finally got Jim to model the cable sweater for me. He has acually been wearing it a lot since I finished it, but at night just to keep warm. He had me make the sleeves extra long so he can fold them up or put them down over his hands.

Since he knew I was going to be showing this off to "the girls" (KHers) he wanted to wait until he was all dressed and wearing it out (he wore it to work today). What can I say...he is a reluctant model!

Thanks Julie! This is definitely my "magnum opus" at this point in my knitting career

Thanks everyone. I am really happy with the fit...I cant get things I knit for myself to fit as perfect as that one does. Must've been meant to be
