Cheesy Puffs

Have you seen the new issue of Knitty?

Lately (IMNSHO) many of the patterns there have been written mostly for the (to quote Carolyn) "mindless boobless 20 somethings".

In this Winter issue though, there is a men's pullover called Cheesy Puffs that caught my eye. I've been wanting to knit something different. I can think of no one I'd rather knit my first 2006 project for than my sweet Benny. 12 years later, he still shows me how much he appreciates everything I do for him, as when our relationship was brand new.

He likes the pattern and the color. We ordered some Gjestal Norwegian wool in Deep Gold

It's almost an unspun roving that's a bit felted. Benny really likes it. I'll show the finished product, hopefully by the end of January.

I saw that sweater and liked it too. The yarn is a good choice. Lucky Benny!

That is a super pattern. Reminds me of those slip-stitch sweaters in "The Knit Stitch" only it is more interesting looking. And I love the yarn. It is going to be delicious. Manly and yet kewl.
