Last Minute = One Year
It was just about a year ago... I was sitting in a hotel room in Montana starting the Men's Zipped Raglan. Little did I know, the stupid zipper would be the end of me. Not really. I was just lazy. It took me three tries to get the thing in there since I ended up not liking the brown thread with the orange zipper. The clear thread stuff proved to be the perfect fit for this project. Behold:
Scott isn't totally in love with it, but he likes it. Good enough for me. I really don't like the collar. The pattern isn't written well in that regards and now that I am a more experienced knitter, I know things like that! It looks a little bit nicer open and will probably end up being used as more of a jacket. I am happy. It is done.
Pattern: Men's Zipped Raglan from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay in #G (coffee)
Measurements: 42" chest, Medium
Started: October 28, 2005
Finished: October 28, 2006
Other Details: This project was a good knit overall. There were a few major mistakes in the pattern, and the zipper was a pain, but it was fine overall. You really can't pass up on the Manos, its just so beautiful in the rib!
