I had finished this sweater as a Christmas present for my husband.  It was the first sweater I actually finished for him, so even though it's not perfect (the neckline seems a bit too boatneck for a man) he really likes it and wears it quite a lot.

Pattern: Adirondack Sweater
Yarn: Jaeger Matchmaker Merino DK 10 balls
Notes: The pattern is very easy to follow, it is a simple top down raglan but with a seed stitch ribbing.  I think it took me about a month of breakneck knitting to get it done.  The fit isn't the greatest but it is very comfy and his first sweater so he damn well better wear it!

Thanks tinybits, I actually didn't change the neckline at all, which is what he doesn't like.  It's just a bit too wide and floppy, so next time I'll have to remember to pick up less stitches or keep knitting until its more narrow.
