I will join this knitalong. I joined last years. I already started my brother's sweater. He actually wants the same sweater I made him last year, the cambridge jacket from Interweave Knits, Summer 2006 He loved it that much. I'm about 80% done. I have the sleeves, back, and left front done. I am about 1/3 done on the right front. Since he showed that he is so knit worthy, I am upgrading the yarn from last years patons merino to 100% cashmere. (he took it to get dry cleaned and he wore it almost every day to his office
) His co-worker emailed me that he wanted one too.
