For a sweater for dh’s birthday at the end of January. This’ll be the 3rd year in a row… though he hasn’t worn the one I made last year that much because the sleeves need to be shortened. Maybe I’ll get to that before I finish this 3rd one. He wore the first one quite a lot, and it no longer looks that great. Part of that is that I should do short-rows in the back to make the back longer, and I didn’t on this first one… so it rides up a bit.
Ideally I might have used other colors, but I’m working down that insanely large stash. I tried it as charcoal with navy, but it was harder to see the navy flecks in the charcoal than vice-versa. And his sweater last year was charcoal. I tried flecks of a lightish blue, but he didn’t like them. And I’m saving the red for myself! His color preferences are rather subdued, which doesn’t make for flights of fancy in the knitting. But thankfully this’ll be a quick knit on largish needles.
Yummier than it looks. Easy crust recipe back here at the bottom of the post.
