Chris loves his Brownstone Pullover so much, that he decided to knit himself another one, this time with a few simple mods to turn it into the perfect, scholarly cardigan. He prefers wooden toggles to regular buttons, and I can't say that I blame him, they look perfect on this sweater. The yarn is the very sheepy and wooly Lismore Sheep Farm yarn that we picked up while at our cottage out East this summer. This is Chris' second favorite yarn in the world (second only to TFA of course!) it's definitely on the rustic side, probably too itchy for most, but Chris doesn't mind it at all.
Chris used to claim that he wasn't a cardigan person, but clearly this sweater proves him wrong. I think its the elbow patches that make him love it so much. They are "vintage" brown suede elbow patches that my mom has been hoarding away since the 70's!
Chris hates modeling, he's much more comfortable with a prop, so we took a bunch of photo's of him with our most photogenic family member.
Possibly the best part? The night after Chris cast off he settled into the sofa for a casual night of tv, and within 10 minutes of sitting there he became antsy and wanted something new to cast on for! He's a real knitter!
