It's great to see a guy knitting! I taught one of my three sons to knit. He lasted for 2 inches and then gave up. He said it was too boring. My other two sons didn't want to learn to knit, and I think the first son only let me teach him out of pity that I had no daughters to teach. You're doing great. Loved your bathmat, too. :)

Thanks I try to do simple things. The bathmat can also be made as a throwrug.

Thank -you, It was my first sweater. My wife said I should have started with a simpler one, but didn't listen. It turned out ok. This is the male version . If I do another for a lady it will have lace and shaping . But will let my wife take the measurements. Overall a great learning experience.

Thank you. Being my first sweater at first why did I take on a task like this? After having help from Myra and my wife Lisa made it possible. I liked the fit and style. A big deal because I'm not one for sweaters.

I am looking forward to see some of your work. I have a couple of lace shawls being worked on. One is done and drying after blocking...Learning to read charts. The second is just started. Have some math to work out. But it has promise. (trying to stick to the pattern is hard for me not used to it. I tend to go freeform and create. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. So restart when things do not look nice.

>>>>Wandalea I wanted to make one for my guy too--thot I would use a thick, tweedy yarn & Make-1 increases instead of Yarnovers, but he only wants pullovers, darn. This one is great!<<< I was thinking the same thing; there's no reason that this same idea cannot be treated as a pullover as easily as a cardi. Just re-think the math and work as though the pieces are already joined (whether as a V-neck or Crew) as one across the front. Then the only increases will be at the armscye.
