I started this sweater for my husband in (gulp) October 2000.
It is one of Hanne Falkenberg's patterns called "Windows", and its brilliance is in the use of only two colors of yarn. The whole effect is created by mosaic knitting, and is a quick knit. Why, you ask, has it taken me so long?

It's all come back into play since my husband asked me why I hadn't been working on any of "his" sweaters lately...interestingly enough, Ms. Falkenberg's design vision incorporates a zipper at the collar, which can have it be worn as open and flat, or a turtleneck. And no, that's not hubby in the picture, but he kinda looks like that guy (at least I think so).
If I can continue to work toward the finish line, he may be able to wear it this winter ... or, more realistically, the next!
