The colour is actually a lot bluer than this photo shows it to be.
It also seems a lot bigger than I expected - and hey, I did swatch - and I did measure accurately! But then it is meant to be a generous fit. It has taken me longer than any man's sweater I have ever knitted before - by the time I finished it only half an hour ago I was heartily sick of it!
This is the second time I have made this sweater. If I never see this pattern again it will be too soon!
Back to baby sweaters for me!
