Paul, it looks incredible!!!

Paul, it looks incredible!!! I like the slim fit. I'm finishing up a cardigan right now in a similar weight, so I know exactly how much time goes into it, but well worth the time. Your execution was awesome!

Rod's jumper looks great

Rod's jumper looks great Paul, I much prefer those knitted hems to ribbing. You've done a great job. That Beluga is a great colour, I was looking at it in Morris & Sons last week.

Boys - thanks so much

Boys - thanks so much *blush* yes 4ply on 3.25mm needles was a big call for a man who is 6'5". But worth it as the weight is perfect for our climate.

Based on the Erika Knight Classic V neck in "Classic mens knits" but I altered it significantly.

All the boring details are in my ravelry projects (same username) - but in short, knitted hems instead of ribbing. knitted in the round and started much smaller around the waist and increased up as I went along.

Making a few baby things now to recover from the BIG job :)

Thanks again - you made my day

Wow...I love the look of the fit. What size yarn and needles did you use? I would like to see more men's patterns in fingering and sport weight yarn, but since people prefer quicker knits, you don't see them often.

It's funny how I almost get offended when people say this, but I mean it in the best looks like you could buy it at the store, being so well-executed and so stylish and so well fit. Gosh. That'll be the day, when I knit a sweater that looks that great! Kudos!

I love the jumper! Is it a published pattern or one of your own design? I especially like the neckline and the hem on the sleeves. Great job!
