Finally got it stitched together. Now my brother wants me to knit him a sweater, want's a jacket with a shawl collar, ordered yarn today for a chart I found on Revelry. And it's unisex. may do one for myself too as it has buttons.

:applesauce: :applesauce: :applesauce: It looks fabulous and will be so lovely and snuggly warm during your cold days.
I am not surprised your brother wants you to knit something for him too. :)

:applesauce: :applesauce: That is a lovely sweater. You knit absolutely beautifully. I knitted one thing in my lifetime and it was a vest that I wore only because I had knitted it, not because it fit properly (didn't), was beautiful (wasn't) or because I liked it (didn't). My aunt who was an amazing knitter helped me. Hardest thing I ever made. I really admire your talent.

Wow, that's fantastic!! I can crochet but I just can't knit. I tried. I think there was just too much counting (said the person who loves counted cross stitch).

I bought an electronic counter that fits on my thumb. Push a button and your row is counted. Only cost me $8. Best thing since sliced bread lol

Wow, it is a lovely warm sweater. :applesauce: :applesauce: :applesauce:
The colour is ideal as it will go with everything. I like knitting but it takes me so long to knit a sweater.
I am not surprise that you are now getting orders! :D
