I Promised...

I did mention that I would try to publish a picture of Rick's Cardigan. Yes, he finally decided on one that would be acceptable and have all the details that he thinks he requires in a sweater. I tell you.... if I didn't absolutely LOVE the guy so much, I think I might have had to hurt him. After many patterns, and possibilities, and possible alterations, and so on and so on, we finally came to the said pattern.

What pattern you ask, well, leave it up to my Beloved to decide that a classic sweater from a Mary Maxim pattern book of mens sweaters from, get this, 1965 - is the one he wants. The crazy thing is, he looked at this pattern before and turned it down. Once things started getting ugly about making all the alterations he wanted on the other pattern - I re-introduced him to this pattern and 'lo and behold' he says "I think that one will do just fine - I like it".

So here is the picture of the current progress - this is the back of the sweater. I still have to figure out how to get a good pic of the finished project..... wait I have an idea.....

....Ha sometimes I actually scare myself.... I took a picture of the picture in the pattern book...DUH!
Just ignore how out of proportion the guy's head and hand are. I was trying not to get the flash reflection. - yes it took a couple trys. Oh and if I could figure out how to crop the pic I would so you would only be looking at the detail of the sweater.

So there it is kids, my Beloved's Cardigan. Now all I have to do is get it done in an extremely timely manner and all will be good. Of course I am still working on Emerald Isle for Annie, and then there are my socks, and Rick's socks, and any number of projects I want to start.

Well, that is all for now, since Rick just came home and we need to visit a bit.

Take Care

Nice lookin! And hey - if he gets really annoying about it, you can knit him something really itchy, just for spite.
