While this is not a good photo, it was my first attempt to knit anything complicated. And to me, this fit the bill. It is in size XL for my husband. I did this while living in MO, but now we live in south Georgia where we seldom can wear wool.
And this is the "matching" sweater for myself, that I did next. It was so warm & snuggly, yet I seldom get the chance to wear it now. Usually our winters are just too mild. Tho the winter of '09-'10 did give me the chance a couple of times~
Unfortunately my hands no longer like Knitting, so I am confined mostly to crochet. Have recently bought the book "Knit One, Purl Two in Crochet" and hope that will fill the missing spot in my yarning enjoyment~ ~ ~
