I think Todd was getting a little impatient to see my finished Expedition. (Kidding Todd!)
...but really I don't blame him. I should have had it finished and photographed weeks ago.
Pattern: Expedition Pullover by Todd Gocken (rav. link)
Needles: US 7
Yarn: Bartlett Yarns 2-ply Fisherman's Wool in Light Heather, 6.5 skeins
Time Taken: To knit? September 23, 2009-November 17, 2009. To finish? Add another three weeks.
I finally went outside today to take some pictures and, well, they're less-than-stellar. It was getting dark (at freaking 3:30pm!), I was by my onesies, and I was all sorts of cold. I'll try to force someone to go outside with me tomorrow to take better pictures.
I do like my buttons, I think they finished off the piece nicely. It took me about two weeks (really only about 5 minutes) to sew them on.
I also threw in a contrasting hem on the cuffs and the bottom of the sweater.
The pattern features an underarm gusset, which I tried to show you here, I think it's a nice touch. And do you see that cable?
I didn't really get a good picture of it, but I love, love, love it.
It goes around the armholes in the front and the back. ...the back being the other thing I didn't photograph today.
and I'll leave you with some blurry great pictures of me in awkward poses making strange faces.
I'll do better tomorrow, I promise! Off to record another podcast episode (woot!)
