Honey pullover
The handsome model is my husband, but the recipient is my son-in-law for his birthday next month. The yarn is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Honey and the pattern is the man's pullover at the Lion Brand site.

Very nice - you did a great job. Your husband looks so good in it - you should make him one too.

He was my mannequin for this as I was almost sure the sleeves in the pattern were too short (a whoppin' 5 1/2 inches too short.) He tried it on for me on Friday to check the sleeve length and said, "You did a great job on the sweater, but I hate the color." So, we definitely aren't going to make him this color!

What I am going to do is use the original pattern, which has stripes and make him an orange, black and white one as he is a big Tony Stewart fan.

Oh, and thanks a lot btw!

Very nice. My hubby would look so good in that color, too bad he won't wear sweaters though.
