I started on Beau after the Thanksgiving holiday. I neglected to get a good photograph early in the process, and now the back is already complete. It has been sitting idle in my bag for about a week as I am diligently working to complete my other knits. The checkerboard pattern on the chest was quite fun to knit – it added a wonderful textural element to the pullover. Initially, I was concerned that it would be too “busy” for Kris’s taste, but he commented that he liked it. That is a good sign!
Plain ol’ Patons Classic Merino Wool in the Chesnut colorway. Working up like a charm.
I am hoping to finish this sweater over the next month – there are three opportunities to give it to Kris during that time: Christmas, his birthday, and our anniversary. Since our anniversary – January 5th – is the last of the succession, I will shoot for that. So, if I do finish earlier, I will be pleasantly surprised.
