Is finished! I'm so excited to have this thing off the needles with seams sewn and all the ends woven in. I'm embarrassed to admit this took me 11 months to do! It quickly became "That big project that I work on when I'm bored of my other stuff", which means it didn't get worked on a whole ton. I had a big spurt of knitting on it right after Christmas (when I found the pattern!) and then it languished again. I finally decided that April was my month for finishing this kind of stuff up, so here it is!
Its slightly more teal that the photo is showing, and I think it will fit my brother pretty well! Hopefully i can get a shot of him wearing this weekend when he is home for Easter :)
