OK, so this is more likely to be a sensible fit in winter 2011/12, but we'll gloss over that for now and concentrate on how much I love this sweater. Apart from the throwing-down-the-stairs-before-deigning-to-wear-it that seems to happen with everything I knit for Teddy (I have convinced myself it's a good luck ritual that he hasn't told me about), he seems pretty happy with it too.
I cast this on the day before Christmas eve and finished it a day or two after boxing day, which is pretty good going for me (mark one in its favour). I am also completely in love with the yarn (mark two), which is a mix of 75% British (Cornish, to be precise) organic wool and 25% Peruvian alpaca, making it lovely and soft while retaining a real 'wool' feel (you know what I mean, right? not too smooth and perfect). The colours are gorgeous - saturated and yet not too bright and garish. I live in hope that they might add a few more to the range so I can knit more things from this yarn. Even so, I suspect some might find its way into a baby knit or two (although not from this batch - I finished the sweater with literally four yards of the cream left and not much more in the blue).
My gauge was off and I picked a size up, so naturally the finished sweater is enormous, but I figure at least he'll get maximum wear out of it! (mark three). It could also do with being a fraction more in proportion (it's a little wider than it ought to be for the length), but even that isn't enough to make me resent it. I'm actually tempted to cast on another one in a cotton/wool blend yarn for summer.
