Ta da! I finished the orange sweater with some ultra crafty problem solving when I ran out of orange yarn and didn't want to buy more.
I made the 42 inch chest because I wanted a roomy sweater and it's a little too roomy but I bet I'll like it when winter returns. I find tight fitting wool sweaters not as warm as loose fitting ones. It's the same for mittens and socks for me.
I do like how I striped the ribbings of the body and the sleeves to get my length and to save as much orange wool as possible.
