The Kangaroo Pockets from "Guy Knits" is progressing. I really like the Berroco Ultra Alpaca in the brown color called Potting Soil. The photo is the back which has a bad cable cross way down about 3” from the bottom. This is one time the mistake is going to stay. The yarn does shed some but is just beautiful. Reviews I’ve read on the yarn says it does stretch lengthwise a bit so I’m making the sweater an inch shorter to compensate. The color is much prettier in person. The photo makes it look washed out. The panels of trinity stitch are smooth, not pucketed as they are appearing. It's a very simple pattern that is perfect for knitting while riding in the truck or watching movies.

I’d started that old panic we all do as in “Do I have enough yardage????”. However I’m not quite through the third ball and have started the arm decreases for the back. I have/had 13 skeins so should have enough even though he has long arms. Right?

It's looking good! I love Potting Soil in Ultra Alpaca. I have not bought that one yet. I have four hanks of Redwood which is sitting around waiting for a project.
