Mr. Kate’s sweater is still in the works. I haven’t been this faithful to a project in ages, but as Mr. Kate keeps reminding me, he’d like to wear it for fishing this fall.

Front and back are finished:

I love the stitch definition with this yarn (the darker colour is more accurate though):

I do enjoy working on it, but hope to have it finished soon. I am craving more projects!!


  1. I know exactly how you feel. I’m on the second sleeve of the sweater for my husband–so close to the end–but SO BORED.

  2. oh wow kate – it’s looking so amazing!
    i know you can totally plow through and finish!!
    (it’s been years since i’ve knit a sweater for brian… i don’t know if i have it in me to make him another one.)

  3. It’s looking great. Love the pattern! Can’t wait to see the finished sweater so hurry up. (just kidding)

  4. Wow, you’re amazing, kate! I admire your perserverence, it looks like your nearing the finish line. Love the colour, too, it’s perfect. And while I’ve got you, I misspelled Nora Vaughn’s last name in one of my replies to you, then seeing her name spelled correctly by you and in a knitting newsletter (Paton’s, Berroco? don’t recall). Is this sweater pattern called, Beagle? Love it, I once had a Beagle I called Lady.

  5. WOW!!!!

  6. How did I miss this post when I went on my commenting frenzy the other day?? Anyway…this looks amazing and perfect for fall fishing. I can imagine you will be glad to be done with it and start on other things…a true testament to your love for your husband! ;)

  7. Wow! It looks wonderful! I’d have a cardigan if I could display the same commitment. But I only have a back. Love the bobbles and cabling, as well as the halo of the yarn. Mr. Kate will be quite warm indeed.

Welcome! I always like to hear what people think of a post, it often leads to a great discussion! I am now responding to comments and questions right in the comments themselves, so other people can follow the conversation.
