I set out to knit four sweaters as presents this year. This is number five!

Dude needs to look a little more thrilled with his amazing new sweater.
It’s me. I’m really happy with the results but kind of bummed i now have to box it up and give it as a gift.
Keep it 😈
After All..Why Not? Why shouldn't he keeps it.
Yes … why not. It’s become very precious to me … my … precious
It’s for my father, so it’s not like i’ll never see it again
I love this sweater!! It's awesome! :)
That's awesome! That it was a snap of you, OP, did briefly cross my mind -- and then flittered away -- because as the OK (original knitter) you should also have a massive smile at having knitted such an amazing sweater to show to us.
I get the apprehension of giving away such a masterpiece though. I sometimes have gifter apprehension when I 10-out-of-10 a project, too.
It’s for my father, so it’s not a tragedy, it’s just hard to let go of something once you spend that much time on something
The pattern is [Auster (for him) by Michele Wang](https://brooklyntweed.com/products/auster-for-him) and the colorway is Autumn from [New Lanark Spinning Company](https://www.newlanarkspinning.com/)
This was a really satisfying one to finish.
Thanks for sharing! It's really nice. I might try it for my hubs - that way it at least stays in the house! 😉
What was it like working with this yarn? I recently scored a good amount of New Lanark Spinning Co yarn from eBay. I've never worked with it before but I'm really excited to try it, especially after seeing your work!
It was really nice to work with. It’s not the softest ever, but it’s really warm, it knits up nicely and it’s very satisfying to work with
Five this year?! Holy smokes!
Love it. I like the pattern and color combination. Great stitch definition.
Thank you :)
Looks great! Whish I was that productive ❣️
It’s mostly done during train commutes and lunch breaks. It’s amazing how much gets done when you put three hours a day into the project
You are actually making me jealous that I don’t have a commute 😀
People at work couldn’t understand why i said i love commuting until they saw my knitting output increase dramatically :)
Amazing! I hope you’ll keep at least one sweater for yourself.
Have a couple in the queue when winter kicks in. Currently working on the bonus round sweater for my wife’s godson
I love the texture of this knit! So cool and different. Awesome job!
How long did this take?? Looks great
Roughly six weeks, but to be fair, the sleeves are straight stockinette and i did those two-at-a-time, so they went real fast
I've done 2 at a time socks, but haven't thought of sleeves. I'm trying to figure in my mind how to fo it with the sweater body in the way.
The sweater was done in four pieces, worked flat, and then seamed together. Since the sleeves were just cruising in stockinette, i was able to keep them on one long circular needle and work my way across both, doing all increases and decreases simultaneously
This is a great tip! I'm working on sleeves for a sweater now and wish I'd known that, but am almost done with the first one now.
Looking forward to seeing your finished work :)
OMG, congratulations on beautiful work AND crushing your goal for the year! You are knitspiration✨
Wow! Fits perfectly. Nice
That is very impressive! Fantastic work and beautiful piece.
Wow, the fit on that is excellent!
Impressive! Keep up the good work
You're crazy talented
The pattern is surprisingly easy to memorize. Honestly, it looks way more intimidating than it actually is. I recommend it if you want a cable project that makes you look like a rockstar :)
