D's big sweater.

Here's the project that's currently soaking up all of my knitting time:

Men's Irish Cardigan

I'm knitting it in Jo Sharp Classic DK Wool in Slate. So far I've done the back and front panels and one sleeve. God, I hope this works out. I've spent way too much time on it to have it look awful. But I told Dennis that he's wearing it no matter what.

It wasn't my first choice for sweater patterns, but it actually knits up pretty easily, and the twist stitch pattern helps keep things interesting. That's usually my beef with big projects: the repetitive boringness of it.

Maybe I'll get it done just in time for next winter...
