FO: John's Jacket!
THE PATTERN: My own pattern, using Sweater Wizard 3.0
YARN: Elann Peruvian Highland Donegal Wool (12 skeins)
TOTAL YDS: 1308
SIZE: 44"
COLOR: Cypress
PATTERN STITCH: Faux Rib

Well, here it is, finally done! My DH likes it better than the basketweave sweater I made him in 2006! Yeah! He might even wear this one!




The yarn is really this color! Outside lighting faded the color a bit!

That is just gorgeous! My DH would LOVE it (and wear it!) but I think he'd drop dead of a heart attack if I ever made anything that nice lol!!

Dollyce, that is exactly the kind of pattern I've been looking for. Michael can't wear pullover's because he gets to warm (due to M.S.). Are you going to sell the pattern anywhere? I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

You do such gorgeous work; do you ever tire of us saying that?
