A Sweater he will actually wear...

Recognize the fetching "Eaton's Catalog Pointing Pose" favoured by male models of the 70's.

It's Elizabeth Morrison's Adirondack Sweater. I made one for DH before and he loved it (ok, he wore it...Dh is rarely inpired to emotion by articles of clothing) but I made a tactical error in using merino wool. It pilled horribly after a few wearings and required constant shaving and grooming to look presentable. This one is made out of a coarser Galway yarn and hopefully it will hold up to more punishment.

Oh, and the work of a very bad retriever...

The sweater looks great (the pose is what really makes it!); I wish I had the patience to knit Todd a sweater. If he's lucky, he might get a pair of socks.

What a fantastic sweater! It looks so comfy on him. :)

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog, they mean a lot. :)

I guess Haley was really hungry?

The sweater looks really nice. I agree with previous comments about making sweaters for men. I haven't in years and most likely won't in the near future.

Is Haley alright after eating all that stuff?
