I finished this up last week and gave it the wash and block over the weekend. I finally got around to taking a picture to post on it. The sweater is the Sampler Sweater from Simply Beautiful Sweater For Men. The grey yarn I purchased last year at our knitting guild's annual yarn auction. It came in 2 very large skeins and was unmarked. It is a single ply, loosely spun worsted weight wool.
When I knit the back using the first skein, I finished the back with a good sized ball of yarn left. So I thought I would have plenty to make 2 sleeves from each of the 2 skeins. Well the other skein was obviously a partial, because the front took nearly all of it to make.
I had about 4.5 oz of yarn left, so what to do. The grey yarn has flecks of orange, mustard, blue and green in it. I bourght a scrap of it with me and picked out some Paton's Classic Wool in Paprika, which I thought picked up the color of the orange flecks nicely.
I knit the sleeves from the shoulders down, using half of the leftover yarn for each side before switching to the Paprika Wool. I like the loook of the color combinations and it fits very comfy. Just need a cool day so I can wear it. The gals at the Thursday night Knitting Circle ooohed and ahhhed over it when I showed it to them.
