Done at Last!
My First Man-size Sweater. My first cable. My first saddle shoulder (see why I couldn't do another shoulder?)
My goodness, isn't he handsome?
It isn't perfect. I suppose he could use maybe two more inches of ease. Just so he could put a button-down shirt under it comfortably. He would prefer another inch or two in the length, too. The sleeves are perfect, he says. *whew*
I think it fits him nicely. I think that I will make a note or two. I think I may make him another one. If I start soon, I won't have a problem getting it done for his birthday next year. The problem is usually unrealistic expectations, isn't it?
Oh, and yes Laurie finished before me. That was a low-down-dirty trick leading me to believe that she was going to run out of yarn. 5 yards is plenty of wiggle room. I was duped! Not that I would have finished any sooner than I did. Again, let's be real about our expectations. Good job, Laurie, now we have the warmest Hubbies in the 'burgh.
