Theo's Mint Chocolate Chip Sweater

I am very proud to say that I have completed my first human-sized sweater as a knitter!

I am usually really hard on myself when it comes to handcrafted items, but in spite of many mistakes (that I can see, but you probably can't) I am in LOVE!  This is the cutest sweater EVER and on Theo... oh my word.  I can't stand it!

Not the greatest shot, but catching him still is almost impossible.  I take what I can get!
It reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream.  That may be why I love it so much.  Theo loves the pocket and practically refuses to take it off.  Of course this makes me love him more! <3

Finished sweater!  

I got the pattern from the book The Yarn Girl's Guide to Knits for Older Kids.  I used Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool  yarn in Nature's Brown for the body.  For the pocket and stripes on the hood I used Bamboospun yarn in Limey.

I am participating in Just Something I Whipped Up over at The Girl Creative and the Sew Darn Crafty party at Sew Many Ways today.
