This pattern is from cosmicpluto knits and the yarn is Lamb's Pride Worsted. It went pretty well and I'm happy with it overall. Some of the finishing was a pain and didn't come out looking as good as I would like (you have to look pretty close to see it) but I will probably be wearing this a lot!

There are more pics and information on Ravelry (I am threegoodrats) and on my blog.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

You did a really nice job on this.  That's the kind of sweater that you'll still be wearing 20 years from now!  I recently gave one of those to my daughter!  She loves it as much as I did!

I hope you're right! I chose this pattern because it looks so classic and versatile - I suspect I'll be wearing it frequently.

It took me four and a half months, but I didn't work on it steadily - I worked on some other projects as well.

I really like the argyle look of the pattern as well. It's all knits and purls so it's easy, but looks really nice!

Oh man I've been eyeing this pattern for awhile. Can't decide if I want to buy it and start, but yours is absolutely gorgeous!
