He used to ask me not to knit in public. Not that I listened.
When I first offered to make him a sweater about a year ago, the response I was, "No. Please don't."
So, when we were in Joann's before Christmas picking up some glitter for the kids ornaments they were making, you can imagine my surprise when I found him by the yarn.
He thought maybe he would like a sweater. He picked out the yarn and everything. Of course, he has no memory of ever saying that he did not want his wife to knit him something.
Although I did not love knitting this one, the end result is so worth it. Once I got to the yoke, I enjoyed it a lot more. A little more variety, and you could really see it come together.
Pattern: Cobblestone, by Jared Flood.
Yarn: Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool in brown, about 2.5 skeins
Size: I cast on for the size small, but I followed the length for the XL. My husband is about 6' 2", but he is really slim.
