Scrappy Doo Sweater completed -

kylewilliam's picture

somehow I was able to finish this entire sweater in 9 days - I am a bit amazed that I got it completed so quickly! It's a little more feminine than I thought it'd be... in the beginning I thought I'd wear it, but now I think it's going to be a gift for someone else... (just not quite sure who yet)

I started a new one on Sunday - using 2 colors of Noro Kureyon - 2 rows of color A, then 2 rows of color B - same top down raglan pattern... it's quite colorful - I'm reserving judgement as to who it'll be worn by for after it's completed....

Kyle this is AWESOME! Seriously, it came out so well. Congratulations! I would totally wear this sweater and I dress like a lesbian!

Interesting mental image for me, since the lesbians I worked with made me feel a little feminine! Which was a little difficult for a 6'4" guy!

LOL! That's my point

LOL! That's my point exactly! I don't think that this sweater is too feminine for guy to wear in the least and I would wear it despite my usual shorts, baseball cap, Adidas sandals and T-shirt ensemble.

Love the blanket and the sweater. Did you get the pattern for the blanket from the book "knitalong" by Larissa Brown. I have done the pinwheel blanket from that book a couple of times. Never thought about making it big enough for an adult. Have to put some thought into that.

Kyle, given that you

Kyle, given that you revealed every waking moment was spent working on this sweater, neither you nor any of us should be surprised at the completion speed!

I get into jags like that as well. When you want something that has a beginning, middle and an end. So little in life like that, is there? Beautiful work.
