hubby's sweater #1

Need an idea for a man's present?
Every now and then, 
I knit something for my husband.

Sounds pretty normal, I know.
But he is the ultimate picky when it comes to knits.


Doesn't have to be too heavy nor chunky: A.K.A. moi has to knit with small needles.
When it's about hand knits, the collar can't be round 
nor V... and he's not crazy about turtle neck either... 
Uh, and polo collars are good only on summer polo shirts.

What the..???



Result: the hybrid.
not-so-chunky 
not-so-polo 
not-so-fisherman




Here's hubby playing 
American next top model - men edition!

Bottom line: he loves it! 
...Mission accomplished! ;)
