Dude needs to look a little more thrilled with his amazing new sweater.


K3tbl

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 😈


PurpleSnapdragons

After All..Why Not? Why shouldn't he keeps it.


K3tbl

Yes … why not. It’s become very precious to me … my … precious


K3tbl

It’s for my father, so it’s not like i’ll never see it again


JackJill0608

I love this sweater!! It's awesome! :)


afelgent

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.


K3tbl

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


K3tbl

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! 😉


twoplaidstella

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!


K3tbl

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


Jen-Walters

Five this year?! Holy smokes!


Legal-Ad8308

Love it. I like the pattern and color combination. Great stitch definition.


K3tbl

Thank you :)

Looks great! Whish I was that productive ❣️


K3tbl

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


Wonderful_Ad_5911

You are actually making me jealous that I don’t have a commute 😀


K3tbl

People at work couldn’t understand why i said i love commuting until they saw my knitting output increase dramatically :)


Lyzard55

Amazing! I hope you’ll keep at least one sweater for yourself.


K3tbl

Have a couple in the queue when winter kicks in. Currently working on the bonus round sweater for my wife’s godson


bonefarmer

I love the texture of this knit! So cool and different. Awesome job!


Educational-Report53

How long did this take?? Looks great


K3tbl

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


Plumbing6

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.


K3tbl

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


alittlebrownbird

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.


K3tbl

Looking forward to seeing your finished work :)


JivecatQueen

CatMommy1951

Wow! Fits perfectly. Nice


QueenOfShibas

That is very impressive! Fantastic work and beautiful piece.


K3tbl

Thank you :)


AntiquePangolin

Wow, the fit on that is excellent!


blueberryamaranth

Impressive! Keep up the good work


K3tbl

Thanks :)


FrostedFruityPebbles

You're crazy talented


K3tbl

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 :)
