After many years of saying “no thanks,” the husband is finally open to a handknit sweater. He likes the look of this one, and I think it’s a nice bonus that it’s got kind of a nerdy origin :-)

I’m using the exact same yarn as I did for my Aidez, so we have the potential to be very matchy (which is probably more than the poor guy bargained for when he agreed to this sweater).

I’m using the in-the-round version of the pattern.

Knitting is going quickly, but I’ve run out of stash yarn. Switching to another project while I await reinforcements.

It’s finished, and we both are happy with it. My only complaint is that the cable down the center is a little odd. If I were to make this again, I think I’d substitute another cable design, or at least tweak this one a bit.
