Now FO! : Leo - Finished 8.20
I'm knitting Leo from Knitty for my dad for christmas.

I've got the front and back done and have just started on the sleeves tonight (I'm trying the 2 sleeves at a time method so I make sure they are the same length and increased the same)

I seamed the shoulders together, and then since I wanted to know how it would look, I safety pinned the sides together and took a couple of pics.





It'll stretch across him more since he's much larger than I am.

Can't wait to post the FO. ^_^


Oh, the yarn I'm using is Plymouth Encore DK #403.
The color in the pics isn't quite right, but close enough.

That's a great start! Does he know he will be getting it, or will it be a complete surprise?

Complete surprise.

I showed it to my step mom. She said he'd like it.

Surprises are fun! Looking very good!

I had never thought of doing 2 sleeves at the same time, but i'm totally going to do it on my sweater!

It's really simple. Good for "mindless" knitting.

I am modifying the sleeves a little bit, because if you go by the pattern, there would be a 10 sts of plain knitting on the underside of the sleeves.

I don't know how well mine will look when it's all done, though. I'll make sure to post how it turns out. :D
