This sweater had been sitting on my needles for over 18 months. Finally finished it as a late Christmas present for the Man of the House! Still needs to be properly blocked so the ribs will be flatter though!

  1. Gorgeous sweater!! Did you knit the hat and scarf too? I swear those photos could be in a catalog.

  5. I love that in the later pictures, you can see the details of the snowflakes that have drifted down. That is just the coolest thing I have ever seen! I love this sweater. It’s so classically styled, and the yarn you chose was just perfect. Oh, how I wish I could knit!!

  7. This is AMAZING. I seriously am in awe of your knitting prowess. I can do scarves and things for the dogs, but I’ve yet to master a knit piece of clothing for a human that isn’t lumpy and misshapen. Simon must be loving this!

    • Wow, thank you Steph! I do remember you making a beautiful orange sweater though :)
      And yes, he is loving it. I have yet to get a chance to block it because he wants to wear it all the time in these cold days!
