When my godsister asked for a sweater for her daughter, she also asked for one for her son. This pattern is a free one called Mystery Sweater and I had a bit of adapting to do to get it to his size (around an 8). I used Knit Picks Brava Bulky which was surprisingly soft for an acrylic yarn. The second photo is truer to the color.
I call this a One Week Wonder as I started it on October 1st and finished it on October 7th. This speed was helped not only by the bulky wool but also by a lot of car time this weekend...we went to NJ and back which gave me 10 hours of knitting time. I'm off to the post office tomorrow!
