(Hey you! Get your mind out of the gutter over there! )
I knit my man a sweater and is he ever happy. Check it out:
He likes the long sleeves with snug wrists that keep his arms warm. He likes the longish body that doesn't ride up when he sits down. I think the short rows help with that:
The blue band right below the traveling stitches is short rows. (He's got a cute back-end, eh?)
He likes the spiral on the yoke:
I like the fact that there is no hole at the end of my grafting.
Jim and I were out and about this morning. It's really cold. With the wind chill, it feels like -20°C. But this sweater kept him warm and comfy. I just love making my man happy!
