    Tacky Christmas Sweater

    It is, actually! He was so disappointed that it was so "normal" until I started gluing stuff on. The gauge is very loose so I probably wouldn't make it for a man to wear normally, and there's no shaping for a woman in it, but it's a good basic sweater that could be adapted several ways.

    He decided that the ratty straw cowboy hat "completed the look," haha!

    Tacky Christmas Sweater

    Hahah, actually, he wanted to enter the contest, but he told me he was only going to do it if he was going to WIN. I said, "I think we can manage that," and then walked off cackling a little bit.
