"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

It's finished!

 

 
I'm pretty happy with it!  I wanted it longer in the back, so I tried to block it to be so.  It's a swingy coat more than a sweater.....just what I had hoped to produce!  The cuffs are quite generous, and perhaps if I were to knit it again, I would make them shorter.  There was much discussion surrounding sleeve length, so I can't say that I was not warned.  All in all, I like the coziness of it.  I think it's a terrific way of using up odd skeins of handspun yarns!  (Not that any of us have those or anything.  lol).

Gorgeous! The rolled up cuffs look fine and probably add a little warmth.

Fun! That looks like it was a lot of work. It turned out great and looks very cozy and warm. Pretty colors, too!

Beautiful!!! I love the way it is in the back. I don't have any handspun yarns around but surely I could find something to use. :-)

It is a work of art! I love the way you mixed the colos of your handspun yarn. It looks great on you too. Great job!
