Took me three months to finish, but I learned a lot in the process. This is a "Weasley Sweater" from "Charmed Knits" by Alison Hansel, based on the sweaters Mrs. Weasley made for the boys for Christmas. I started it at the beginning of November in hopes of finishing it for a Christmas present for my brother. Took January as well to finish it. Not perfect, but I'm happy with the way it turned out.
I made it with acrylic yarn on the theory that nobody is allergic to acrylic. Don't know if that's true, but I wanted to reduce the chances of a problem. Found a really nice burgundy yarn from Red Heart called Claret Fleck. It has different color fibers every so often to give it sort of a tweedy look. Perfect for this sweater.
