Sorry I haven't posted any work. The new editors are running me crazy. This is the latest jacket in print ( 22 more). ( shameless, no?) Check out "Knit and Style" Holiday 2010, pg ~41-42...I haven't done much knitting for men lately,...but hope springs eternal ! This pix is true to the orignal color ( I did not like their foto, but so it goes) What do you guys think...( I respect you guy's comments, more than theirs) ha, ha, The lace insert (sleeve, collar)were much fun ! Hopefully I will not be so long between posts.

Thanks for the comments.

Thanks for the comments. About the use of the dress form.... these handknits are usally done in 3-4 days and have to be in the mail. So I have very little time to foto properly. I take ~ 5hrs to write the pattern and grade the sizes.....so that leave little time for anything else.They request to see the garment in drape form, hence the dress form. AT the rate of 22 sweater and patterns in 6 months...what can I say? They can refence the proportions on the dressform....But, yes it would be nice but not very praticle....in this instance.
We, men , are creeping into the field of knitwear very quickly !

Beautiful, stunning sweater.

Beautiful, stunning sweater. I think the photo would have been much more interesting with a live model or at least presented a la "Territory Ahead" catalog (without the form) given they done lots of photos without models.

A very nice design...somewhat traditional, yet edgy. [No pun intended.] -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
