INCREDIBLY COMFY. I have been wearing it everyday for 3 days. LOVE. IT!
Wow! That looks so warm and soft. Great work!

Isn't that just a wet dream?
Hot, hunky man in nice warm sweater that he designed and knit sitting on my couch. Can I offer a foot massage?
haha. am i the only one who finds it.....hot/semi-erotic to give/get a foot massage from their man when lounding on each other on the couch?
HA! No, the bf here likes the feet.....and I love getting the massage :)
What a fabulous looking jacket - and the model ain't half bad either! Congratulations.
It's fantastic, I love design.

I love it too! Can I borrow it sometime?
Looks great and comfy to me, I'm going to take a fair isle class at the end of Feb and am excited about getting color into my knitting in a pattern other than horizontal stripes.
Bob, your jacket looks great, well done. Lucky Joe to have you on his couch!
It's fabulous - and from the look of your face it's easy to see how comfortable it is. Asplund
Nice job. I love the pattern work across the chest, and the hood...Nice work.
yeah - I'd wear that - except that when you have the general shape of bloated pear; well - you know what I mean. But I'd *like* to wear it.

Very hip. You'd get by well in the hood with the hoody. Fantiastic job!
I wish I were knitting now.
....and it must be a nice change from all the repair and alteration work!
LOL. I should call this the Taliesin hoodie (Or maybe the "Frankenhoodie)... Frank Lloyd Wright was always rebuilding his own house, Taliesin...when ever I make a sweater, the minute I try it on, if I am not 100% pleased with it, I retailor it until I am completely satisfied.
I've retailored the sides, took the front of the shoulders out and short -rowed them after the whole garment was knit. I did the hood about 3 times, did 3 different sets of under arm gussets...(The original design didn't have them, and the armholes were too snug). I still have to redesign the invisible ribbing at the bottom hem as I'm not 100% pleased with it.
A change from repair and alteration? IF ONLY! LOL!

*waits patiently to see how this one plays out* :D I love happy endings!
This is such a great looking sweater jacket. Are you taking orders?
Rock on Bob! Come to the East Coast! Give some classes!!!! I'll sign up!!!!
