I cast on 6 days ago for a raglan pullover and I modified a collar with some short row shaping in the back so it was sort of a polo collar. I will admit I considered and started making a hood but it just wasn't working. Anyway, I think it turned out wonderfully! James has BIG blue eyes and I know this will look great on him.
So yesterday afternoon after I finished this I had a moment of panic. I didn't have a single project on my needles and my hands were at a loss with nothing to do! For the first time in ages I watched an hour of tv without knitting...un-natural! So I grabbed the leftover yarn from this sweater and cast on some mittens for James' older brother.
