He needed a sweater to survive in the Arctic chill that is his office.
So I made him a sweater


A very simple raglan top down sweater - no cables or anything else, just deep ribbing at the hem and a rolled collar and sleeve hems.


The yarn is thick and heavy and when I used it for the Wall Street Cables, resulted in DeQuervain's syndrome - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeQuervain%27s_syndrome
:/

Anyways, in different light, he looks like a medieval knight in chain mail, or an Irish militant.


We both love it

Now that is a very nice man's sweater! I like it a lot and would actually wear it quite a bit myself. Truthfully, that would be one of those gifts that's "For you, but secretly for me."  Grin
