Here it is almost Christmas and I just got done, except for the buttons, with son’s sweater.  This is only the second sweater that I have ever made and I think it turned out very nice.  When I asked son what he wanted for christmas he said he wanted me to knit him an Irish type sweater so I gulped and said sure why not, but only if he would  pick out the yarn he wanted it in and the style of sweater.  He went and picked out Lion Brand Fisheman’s  yarn in 100% wool and oatmeal color.  There was just noway I could get enough spun in the timeframe to make a sweater, this was just after Thanksgiving. The way it was it took me close to a month to machine knit the sweater.  I used the KX350 knitting machine.  So here are some pictures of the sweater.
