The Husband sweater, although it needs a better name, is flying along. I've successfully avoided Sleeve Island (hey Pixie, try knitting the sleeves first. That way you don't get stuck with a pile of almost-vests) and started the body this weekend. I'm going to try and finish it up by the end of the month, so I guess that makes me an official NaKniSweMo participant.
I know I said originally that I was going to try and design this sucker myself, but I've decided not to. Everytime I sat down to work out the math or tweak some part of the cobbled together pattern I kept thinking that someone must have done this work before me. And better. And I was right. I decided to use the Elizabeth Zimmerman Seamless Hybrid pattern from Knitting Without Tears. I showed some pictures to the Husband and got immediate approval, so I'm taking the pressure off myself of having to create THE Sweater. The yarn is Cascade 220 in the imaginatively named colour 9459.
