What materials did you use? Kraemer's Tatamy Tweed Worsted - to my estimation this is a lighter worsted then many of the others I have knitted with. Its a cotton/acrylic blend and works up really nice!!

What are you most proud of? That I was able to make him exactly what he wanted. BTW... the placket still needs its buttons. I have not made/found the right ones yet.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the class first so you have some guidance in how to do the measurements and then calculations you need to do to get everything to fit together properly. Also, I would advice learning a bit about plackets and how they attach to the garment. In all honesty, doing that placket sucked!

Thank you! I am hoping that once I give it to him he will let me take a couple pictures of him in it.

Beautiful seaming and nice even stitches. I hope you post pics with him wearing after he gets it!

Thank you! This particular yarn is really nice to work with. And thank you for the comment about my seaming... I really do not like doing that part at all. I hope he will let me take pics.

This is my handsome son. The sweater fits him wonderfully well, thank goodness. He does not look happy in the picture cause, 1 he does not like taking pictures, and 2, he has an abscessed tooth.
