This is the nicest sweater to knit up when you are in a hurry to send something warm to your grown child.
I used Sheepsdown wool [from School House Press], knitting needles for MY gauge and my knitting bible - Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac.
The finished sweater weighs only 2.53 pounds. Details on how to knit this wonderful sweater is in the Knitter's Almanac.
Do you see my personal message in the hem at the back? Once again, I used wool...
I wish everyone could have a sweater like this to wrap themselves up in because it's like a big hug!
