Yesterday, my husband said I could make him a fisherman's sweater :woot::woohoo:. To a knitter that's like catnip! MAKE me knit, MAKE me buy yarn, WEAR my stuff! :woohoo:. Funny thing is he decided this after I made a Christmas coffee Cozy, and he figures if I don't make him something soon he'll have tons of socks I make which he doesn't like :nails: and I'll soon be making cozies for crazy things around the house. LOL!
OK, so that might not seem like such a big deal, but he's NOT a sweater wearer, and we live in the South, so it's not often cold enough for him to wear one.
So..............my mission, should I choose to accept it (and you guys can help me here!).............is to find an aran/fisherman's sweater pattern which is free. I know I can do a Raverly search, but I love to get personal feedback from KHers on stuff they've seen or knitted. Photos are always appreciated and enjoyed
Another thing is he doesn't like wool, might be a little allergic to it, AND since it's not ever very cold around here [COLOR=Red]wants me to make it in 100% acryllic[/COLOR]. :noway: I tried talking him into some Wool Ease (80% acryllic 20% wool) but he insists............so if you have made one in all acryllic I'd also love to know which and how it turned out.
