Old Man Sweater.

It's a heavily modified Kyle Sweater http://berroco.com/exclusives/kyle/kyle.html

I wanted a cardigan not a pullover

and I wanted three pieces to knit instead of five.

It's oversized, comfortable, and just what I was envisioning for knitting on the porch on a chilly day.

Size 10 Needles, double strands of rough spun silk.

I don't think it looks like

I don't think it looks like an old man. Let's just say it a shawl collared classic which makes it timeless! Hows that? I really like the color too, looks like it will be nice with just about whatever you might have on. It's beautiful!

I prefer "classic style

I prefer "classic style sweater"...actually this is quite a rich and beautiful use of bulky yarn. It might be interesting to see you where this sweater in public with the oh-so-trendy Jared Flood hat you just posted...classic below, trendy on top...it'll confuse the crap out of the fashionistas.

looks perfect to me... I am

looks perfect to me... I am quite often accused of wearing "old man" sweaters... and I like the "Kyle" sweater (not only because of it's name) and really like this version as well!

great job!!
