I finished this up last week and gave it the wash and block over the weekend.  I finally got around to taking a picture to post on it.  The sweater is the Sampler Sweater from Simply Beautiful Sweater For Men.  The grey yarn I purchased last year at our knitting guild's annual yarn auction.  It came in 2 very large skeins and was unmarked.  It is a single ply, loosely spun worsted weight wool.

Knit A River

is anyone interested in a bit of charity work?

Knit A River is the best petition you'll ever knit! It's a great way to help some of the world's poorest people and share your love of knitting. It's also a great way of using the oddments of blue yarn that are cluttering up your stash.

Knit A River is a unique campaign by I Knit for Wateraid. We need knitters to produce as many blue squares as possible and send them to us so we can sew them together to make a river. The river will (hopefully) flow through London (and more) carrying the message WATER AND TOILETS FOR ALL.

There are currently 1.1 billion people who do not have access to safe water.
