Back in December I was inspired to start knitting again and started a sweater for Clint. He picked out the pattern (actually, asked me to combine two patterns and modify it beyond that, but I think I'll be able to pull it off), yarn, everything. He wanted 100% wool, and we found some lovely dark brown virgin wool that is working beautifully. For the fair isle pattern, he still wanted a natural colour, and since I already had some of the cream colored wool-acrylic blend, he decided it would be a good match.

This was my first time working multiple colours on the same row, but I think I pulled it off alright!

Basically, this is the collar Clint wants, just with one or two more buttons to make it a bit longer, sort of like a turtle-neck. Anyway, it's coming along nicely but slowly. My plan is to get it finished in time for fall weather, so I've got a bit of time to get it done. I do have incentive to finish it, though, because I only allow myself one project at a time (otherwise I would have a million unfinished projects hanging around the house), and I'm wanting to make myself some socks! And a sweater, too, probably, but I think I'll take on a smaller project after this one . . .
