    I made a version of Beau for my husband last year. He wears it all the time!

    That’s a gorgeous sweater, Lolly. Your husband is one lucky fella. Rowan does men’s sweaters best I think – classic, but with nice details and touches.

    I have the Cambridge Jacket by Ann Budd from the Spring 06 issue of IK on the needles for my husband. He’s been patiently awaiting it (and a fingerless glove mate) for close to 2 years! Life gets in the way sometimes of personal knitting :)

    I first I thought that was a picture of your husband…

    I love knitting for my hubby too. I’m always on the hunt for more great sweaters to knit for him.

    Lolly, I’m so inspired by your knitting! It’s so extraordinary and I look forward to seeing all of your new projects! Keep up the good work!

    My dh will only wear v-necks so he can wear a collared shirt and tie comfortably. A worsted weight wool would prob. be too hot for him, and I’m afraid a finer weight would never get finished…..so I tend to let eddie bauer knit his sweaters for him!!

    I’ve got the yarn for the Duxbury Point Pullover from Simply Shetland 4 for DH and it’s next up in the queue. Yarn is yummy, pattern gorgeous.. Can’t wait to get to it.

    That’s funny, I have the same Christmas/Anniversary/Birthday lineup, but I think I can squeeze it into a week and a half. Christmas on the 25th of course, Anniversary on the 30th, and his birthday on Jan. 3.

    Someone told me I was NUTS for getting married right after Christmas. We had a party, got married at said party. No big deal, no stress and no white wedding gown.

    Anyway, I am knitting on the garter rib sweater from The Sweater Workshop. It’s a simple pattern and stress free knitting. The ribbed texture gives it interest without pulling in as much as regular ribbing would.

    I have a Beau in line, too…in blue tweed aran.

    first, happy belated birthday dear lolly!! hope it was a fabulous day.
    can you believe that beau had “too much going on” for e? :) i am relying more and more on elizabeth zimmerman in my knitting for him (i knit him a sweater every year for our anniversary too!)… simple and classic!! last year was the seamless hybrid which i LOVE. and the cobblestone has been a big hit… he’s hardly taken it off since i finished it… though i agree it is lovely in a good tweedy yarn!
    there is also (and i’m being lazy now in not finding the pattern), in the first yorkshire tweed book from rowan (a yorkshire tale?)– it has a ton of patterns for the rowanspun line– a zip-up cardigan that i made for e and it is much loved.

    Beau is an excellent choice–Alex wears his all. the. time. And it’s a lot faster and more fun to knit than Cobblestone, aka The Sweater That is Currently Breaking My Balls.

    i just cast on for cobblestone last night for my husband’s christmas present. my first real sweater project! i also love the manly maze from no sheep for you and someday plan to make him dotty from rowan (fall 2006, i think)

    I don’t have any specific favorite men’s patterns. My M is pretty particular. I made the Oxford sweater for him last year and he really loves it. Although M is somewhat slim in nature, he has broad shoulders and likes his sweaters a bit oversized, to the tune of 45-47″ and has a long torso. His sweater did not go quickly. i really liked the Cobblestone sweater, but he didn’t love it. There will be more sweaters in future, because he’s such a sweater lover. I enjoyed your post, because it gave me some more ideas for him.

    I am very love your knitting, and I also want to do something sweet like you for my boyfriend. However, he is quite fat (especially in abdomen’s region) , would you mind give me some advices what style or colours of sweater is suit for him…
    Thank for advance…

    You are talented at hand-art
