A bit of stealthy knitting since I was a bit overwhelmed with all the lace and cables around me. I desperately wanted to knit with this colourway and this project was next in my Personal Sweater Club queue so I cast on.

And before I knew it I was done. Such a quick enjoyable knit. Even made more enjoyable by the yarn.

Mods: Knitted only 10 inches of the cowl. Added 24 rows of stockinette for the sleeves and I added one more increase at the hips to accommodate my “humvee” hips. Omitted the pockets but thinking about picking up stitches and knitting the pockets on instead of sewing them on. Let’s see.
