Well... I do have a finished item to show you... though I will do that in the next post. In the meantime, I started the Hubby's jumper with the wool he picked in Australia. Which is a pain to knit with but knits up fast.
This is what it looks like up close
It reminds me a little of this....
See the similarity
So when it's finished, the hubby will be like a big wooly sheep and hopefuly just as warm.
