PW Sweater Finished


Hubby's Philosopher's Wool pullover is finished and is a perfect fit! Too warm to wear it now but it will get plenty of wear this Fall. I did run out of one color and was able to match it almost exactly, have plenty of the main color left over. I joined the sleeves with a 3 needle bind off, first time I have tried that, and am very happy with the results. The yarn did bleed quite a bit when it was washed but did no harm. It was knitted with size 7 Addi circular needles.

Hi Shirley, It fits your DH perfectly and looks great on him. Job well done! I purchased a PW kit at MS&W. One day I may even start it.

It's fabulous! Makes me anxious to start mine. In the basement, where it's cooler in the summer. I love the colors!

Looks just like a male model!!! Just kidding. Isn't it nice to give the DHs just what they wanted in a sweater. Now that he has his done, you can sock away while we FI the summer away.

What a great sweater and a great model too! I only wish my DH would ever wear any of the sweaters I've made him. sigh
