Knitting for love
My dud is the latest recipient of a handknit sweater. I think he's been wearing it for the last week, nonstop.
It's about a million stitches, knit in worsted weight at a pretty tight gauge. I've made three sweaters using this pattern, Easy Raglan from Green Mountain Spinnery, all in Greenwood Hill Farm Merino worsted weight. Something about this combination makes it irresistible to men. Chris, sitting next to me as I write this, says "it's a sweater made out of tiger blood and Adonis DNA" (he was the recipient of the first one I made).
Hey Dud, at least take it off to sleep, okay?
