I've got about half a sleeve to go, but I can't finish until I go to the store and buy some new needles!  I somehow lost one of mine.  I guess that's what I get for lugging it around everywhere I go in an open knitting bag.

So I should sew the pieces together first, THEN block, right?

DH is getting impatient (I don't know why -- it's 95 degrees outside!!!).

I guess you would block afterwards. I dunno really. I've always done it that way, but then, I 'm a bit of a non conformist when it comes to instructions!  I think that's why I love it here so much!

How's everyone doing? I'm still not making as much progress as I'd hoped.It may turn into a New Year's present at this rate...

Mine is finished!  I posted this on the S&B board also.  Here it is:





It looks much better since I blocked it, another new experience for me, blocking.  Now we are just tapping our feet wondering why it is 90 degrees outside in the middle of October... DH is dying to wear his new sweater!

By the way, my yarn sub was Caron Perfect Match for the MC, and Caron Simply Soft for the CC.  It's very heavy and very warm, but not too too bulky, and the first swatch I knitted for gauge was perfect using the recommended needle sizes.  And it's a pretty cheap yarn too (I got it for $2.50 a skein, and I used 2 1/2 skeins of MC, and not even half of the CC).  And it was easy and fun to knit with.  I highly recommend it.   Cool

Very Awesome!!! Did you find the pattern was well suited to "normal" sizes of premade clothing? I'm wondering if my sweater is going to fit hubby correctly.

I was pleasantly surprised that the medium pattern fits him perfectly.  I was worried that the pieces looked small while I was knitting them (and DH has been a fan of the junk food lately!).

I just re-read my post, and I don't know if my answer was clear -- um, yes.  He normally wears a medium, I knit a medium, and it fits.    Smiley

I understood! Wink Thanks! I'm so glad, because I was wondering how my hubby was going to look...lol either in a sweater that looked like it ate him or shrunk...both pretty funny visuals, but not so much when you think of all the work.

heh...if I stop finding other things to knit instead of this I may still get it done in time for festivus.....but at the current rate of laziness, its either going to be new years or valentines....because every time he pisses me off, I put the sweater down and make something for someone else....heh heh. one would think that knowing how cold winter in canada is that he would WANT a fancy flamey sweater....heh heh.

and tangemeenie!!!! that sweater is awesome!!!! well done!!!
