Finally, me and my knitting nemesis can part ways. It's been a few months, but in the end I think it was worth it.. It's Knitty's Saranac pattern, but done in Debbie Bliss Cotton Denim Aran, with some Cascade 220 for trim at the sleeves & neck. We celebrated the Giving Of The Sweater with something I'll call a Saranac (ha - named a drink!) really a cape codder by any other name.

cranberry juice, soda water & lime - w/ some Absolut fresh from the freezer.

He needed it after a hard afternoon with the ladies. Seems there was a big nail polish incident.


Here's hubby doing the obligatory ta da shot:

Sideways, of course because I still can't remember to rotate these things.

And now here he is in his natural habitat - on the sofa, watching football. The cow puppet isn't part of his setup - that's Zoe's.

That's a really handsome sweater. You did a great job.

Great sweater! So, you just forgot to rotate it, eh? That yarn didn't give Paul special anti-gravity powers, or anything, no?

I was just clicking around your blog and saw the sweater in the post... it's really really nice looking, I'm going to send the link to my knitter of a sister and get her to copy! Take care,
