That is stunning! You are the king of stranded knitting! Did you design this?

Yes it is a personal design....more or less I make up things as I go along

I know I'm not your "particular someone"... But I'll pretend to be if that means you'll send me the sweater :-)

Seriously though... wow! you blow my mind.

Grace and Peace,

OK... I've thought about it some more. Having seen some of your knitting and having seen you're pictures.... I've decided you're not human. My best guess is android....

Holy heck....you don't need to compliment me on my Morgan at all....if you can knit something like this, then you're a knitting God.

WOW
Absolutely beautiful sweater. The colors are great and your stranding looks perfect. The sizing and finishing is very professional as well. How about a picture of you wearing it?

Jason1978's picture

hahaha I would, but it's too big for me....I look dorky wearing it

Very, very beautiful. The recipient should be thrilled. And you should be very proud of your wonderful work.

Quite impressive work. I'm not usually fond of stranded knitting with a white background, but in this style with the polo collar and button band, it looks quite fine.

I also love the color pattern just below the chest...I've never seen anything quite like it.

I hesitate to ask, but how long did this masterpiece take you?

Jason1978's picture

it took me a little under 2 weeks...

You hand-knit that in the course of two-weeks? What's the gauge? I'm impressed. I'm not much for stranded on white either, but I love the polo neck, and it looks beautifully done.

Impeccably crafted. Your work is amazing and you certainly are gifted to create and execute something so complex on so many levels. Thank you for sharing your work with us.

I'm dating myself...but the thing I like most about it is the kind of "Space Invaders" quality to the graphic of the fair-isle. You made it up as you went along? That's the coolest part. I love designing on the fly: Makes for very interesting garments.

i'd date myself, but i can't afford me :) it's also complicated. for example, consider breaking up with oneself should it not work out? awkward...and the sleeping arrangements, custody issues...the mind wobbles

It's AMAZING!!! I don't have any plans for making a garment anytime soon, but when I look at what you did, it makes me think... hmmmm...

Great work Jason!!!

I showed this to everyone here at work, and no one believes someone actually hand-knit it. LOL

When I said, "He did it in less than two weeks," they actually said, no hint of sarcasm, "Is that actually possible?" I told them a story about a lady in a knitting tutorial video who knit nearly a whole row of stitches in the time it took me to do five or six. LMAO

wow...thanks for all the lovely comments...I guess I could no publicly tell you I knitted it for yugidean....he seems to be a fan of my knitting....and NO, we are not romantically involved

'Why are you weeping? Did you imagine that I was immortal?'

What a magnificent accomplishment. I'm sure that you have some "hot shot" knitting guru's drooling at your work about now.

Mnjack's picture

Beautiful work. I really like the style, where did you find the pattern.?

Jason1978's picture

The pattern is my own.....i use pieces of different patterns sometimes, but over all, I try to always come up with something myself, I like seeing where my mood takes me
