I knit the Leo Sweater for my Dad for his Christmas present that he got in February.  But it fits him like a dream, and it's gorgeous!  Here's some pics:

Wow! Nice color. Was it hard? I saw that pattern and thought it sounded hard because there were so many stitches.

Hey, your neighborhood looks Ladera Ranch-ish. I bet my boys would love to live in a neighborhood with a train!

It wasn't too hard, just really time consuming, but totally worth it when I gave it to him.  I also knit it in the round to the arm pits so it did tend to get kind of heavy since it was in cotton.  I live in Tustin, so actually not too far from Ladera, but I'm moving soon to Mission Viejo.  Yeah the train was really random, still have no idea what that was all about.

Ah, must be Tustin Ranch. Ya, that was very random. I love MV (though we're trying to move). Not far from Yarn Lady.

What yarn did you use for your dad's sweater? I really want to make a sweater for my hubby and that was one of the patterns I was considering.

I used Esprit from Elann.com here's the link:

it's just right for out here, or for a fall sweater for other parts of the country.
