Out with the old and an FO

And in with the new... fireplace screen, that is.

The old:

The naked...

The new:

In use:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Where's the hot chocolate?

Here is hubby in his finished Cobblestone:

The yarn is Sirdar Country DK and the gauge was 22 sts = 4" so I had to fudge the numbers for a size that fit. I think it came out pretty well. Whew. There was a lot of stockinette but the short row shaping held my interest.

I think Jim will stay warm and I hope you do too.

The sweater looks great, and it looks like it fits him perfectly! And I love the new fireplace too!

I'm late commenting. The new screen is nice, but the Cobblestone is outstanding. The color is beautiful, and you did a great job with both the pattern and the fit. Happy Nutcracker!
