They both stretched quite a bit, in fact one so much that I gave it to the local zoo for a chilly gorilla...ok, that is a bit of an exaggeration, but not much! I was v.disappointed as the yarn feels and looks beautiful and was lovely to knit with. Obviously this could have been mum's fault (though I've never said that to her!) but just thought I'd pass it on...after all that work....and looking so good x
Thank you very much for the advice I'll be extra careful with washing it. Maybe i'll just have to block it again after the washing .

Hi girl!

Sorry, I'm always last to say something. Knit a little slower - it might help.

May be if I was as good a knitter as you my man would wear whatever I'd knit for him.

Love,
Tamar

Thank you again Hubby already got to wear the sweater outside and many people are noticing it's handknit. I'm so glad he's proud of it.

Thank you, thank you I'm glad that my work is an inspiraton for others . What i did was show DH the pattern for approval, than i got the yarn in a colourway he liked and the rest is history. I think that way you can knit something that will be worn and loved. It's also important to check allergies and level of sensitivity to "itchyness".

The funny thing is that this yarn does stretch. It's heavy, so the sweater is pulling itself down, it's already an inch longer.

Thank you for the compliments. I'm not such a fast knitter. This sweater took me about 6 months. It's my first ever *normal* sweater, so i just took the jump and tried. When i didn't know what to do (i learned new increases on this one), i turned to Amy's videos or searched the forum. It wasn't easy, but it definitely fills me with pride to look at it .
