Since I knit quite a bit of this sweater while watching John Adams on HBO we thought it was a fitting place for an excursion.
The weather was chilly and the skies were gray but Dale was warm in his new sweater.
I think the fit is a bit small but it’s just what he wanted. In his words, “I want a sweater that fits like a shirt.” Good thing I knew what he meant.
The pattern is terrific and available from Figheadh Yarnworks. I’d highly recommend it. It’s simple and straightforward, knit in the round from the bottom up and then the sleeves stitches are picked up and knit down. Easy peasy, this one.
After a quick stroll around the grounds we headed home. Dale’s with his new sweater and me with my new pictures. We were both pretty happy with the outcome of this trip.
