Last Christmas Gift!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm done with my brother's IOU gift!!!!!! Now I have to get it to him. Now I'm free of Holiday gifts I've started knitting my 1st sweater for my DH. I hope I can do it. I know I'm going to need alot of help so get ready for a bunch of silly questions.

1st Thank you all This was an easy and quick pattern.

2nd Sorry I forgot to post the sourse and yarn.

The pattern is called the Rustic Celtic. I found it in KNIT Ponchos Wraps & Scarves I got my copy of the book at ACMoore with my 40% off coupon but the price is 21.99. After I bought it I saw it on KP's site for less but c'est la vie.

The yarn was Paton's Classic Merino Aran (my new favorite yarn)

The pattern called for a chunky yarn and #10 1/2s but 9s worked fine with the Merino Aran
