....and it must be a nice change from all the repair and alteration work!
LOL. I should call this the Taliesin hoodie (Or maybe the "Frankenhoodie)... Frank Lloyd Wright was always rebuilding his own house, Taliesin...when ever I make a sweater, the minute I try it on, if I am not 100% pleased with it, I retailor it until I am completely satisfied.
I've retailored the sides, took the front of the shoulders out and short -rowed them after the whole garment was knit. I did the hood about 3 times, did 3 different sets of under arm gussets...(The original design didn't have them, and the armholes were too snug). I still have to redesign the invisible ribbing at the bottom hem as I'm not 100% pleased with it.
A change from repair and alteration? IF ONLY! LOL!
Very hip. You'd get by well in the hood with the hoody. Fantiastic job!
I wish I were knitting now.
yeah - I'd wear that - except that when you have the general shape of bloated pear; well - you know what I mean. But I'd *like* to wear it.

Nice job. I love the pattern work across the chest, and the hood...Nice work.
It's fabulous - and from the look of your face it's easy to see how comfortable it is. Asplund
Bob, your jacket looks great, well done. Lucky Joe to have you on his couch!
Looks great and comfy to me, I'm going to take a fair isle class at the end of Feb and am excited about getting color into my knitting in a pattern other than horizontal stripes.
I love it too! Can I borrow it sometime?
It's fantastic, I love design.
What a fabulous looking jacket - and the model ain't half bad either! Congratulations.
Isn't that just a wet dream?
