Pushing the Envelope

Knitters know about the 'Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater.'  You knit him a sweater - he's gone!  Although the esteemed source notes that this curse is not backed by a controlled study, few myths are.  But throwing cautions to the blustering winds, I decided last birthday season that a sweater was in order.  I will not complete said sweater before the 2010 birthday season later this month, but we have a start.  The start of a sleeve that is.

Although sweaters have been known to morph as they are being creative, think 'Cobblestone.'   But with ribbing, not the seed stitch borders as the intended wearer can be something of a traditionalist.  But when the pattern was first published in Interweave Knits (Fall 2007), the comment was, 'I would wear this.'  High praise, indeed!
