I decided Alex needed a new, wool sweater for Fall. I was inspired by all the cozy sweaters that Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) wears on the TV show Grimm. They're the comfiest looking Grandpa sweaters and I couldn't see Alex going another Fall without one.
I chose the pattern Brownstone by Jonas Flood on Ravelry. (Photo by Brooklyn Tweed.)
The yarn I'm using is KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Indigo Heather. It's a relatively soft 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. It's ridiculously inexpensive (in fact, it's on sale for $1.99 right now!) and I loaded up at their last sale. (I bought enough to make 4 sweaters!) It's a super sturdy yarn too so I'm sure this sweater will keep Alex dry and toasty on his bus commute to school/work this Fall.
I started sleeve number one on Monday and I've been cruising along.
Wish me luck on those short rows!
