I proudly give you,
The Husbandly Sweater!
Started 18th August.
Finished 26th August (at 11:25pm!) (unless you insist on it being washed and blocked)
Yarn - two strands of DK held together (hence the dithering in the intermediate areas). Yarn was bought at the Sandown Scroatfight (Melbourne, Oz) for 99c a ball. I think I used 8 50g/92m balls of each colour.
Pattern: the top down raglan calculator found here. This is a great calculator but it does not generate a fitted sweater (I made a close-fitted top a couple of years ago and had to fiddle the numbers quite a bit). For DH, I needed to cast on more stitches for the back and fewer for the front - he is a computer geek and has pretty poor posture. But I didn't.
He is happy with the result and it looks pretty good on him, a bit baggy around the chest front but overall I am quite pleased with this. I knitted it in just over a week, which shows how fast I can knit if I want/need to.
Is this my first proper FO for the year? Y'know it might well be - I think I only have a couple of socks, scarves and a hat or two done before now!
