FO: Mens' Simple Sweater
Here is the finished project. Finally a sweater of my own! Now back to the sweatshop for my wife.
Izzy thinks it should be her sweater. I suppose she is next.

The simplest styles on men are always the best, and they say men like simple styles! There is a great book called "Knitting a Sweater that He Will Wear!" It is really an eye-opener!

Your sweater is just wonderful! Well knit, good fit, and great color for him!

I like it very much. I think a simple sweater with clean lines looks best on men. I really like the length of the sleeves - nothing worse than skimpy sleeves on men!!!
