Hi! It's my first post here..
I hadn't been knitting for a few years until recently, had a very hectic time. This jumper was a request from my husband, he had chosen colours himself. I was sceptical first about the  colours, but now think it went pretty well.
This is the result, hope to knit more soon (I also made a jumper and a scarf for a teddy but don't think it counts Smiley )

Nice sweater, cute husband, and I love the arboretum.

that's an awesome sweater - you did great.

(from the thumbnail, I was wondering why anyone would haul a mannequin to a park .... his skin tone is washed out by the bright sunlight, so he looked sort of .... plasticy. You have my apologies! LMAO  Second photo, no silly mistake!)

Wow! That man can pull off his purple. Smiley
And I really like it when someone makes something useful for the men in their lives-- it always seems so tough to do!

Thank you for your nice comments. I had been on and off on it  (more off than on Smiley )  for over a year!
As for the colours, it's colours of their regiment: (british household cavalry)
