Finished on New Years Day! Made as per the pattern, but with 1x1 ribbing instead of 2x2 (it's still a bit loose). Otherwise I love this yarn and pattern :)
When the apocalypse comes, the knitters will be revered as gods. Their ability to churn out inexpensive, stylish knitwear will be valued beyond measure. Knitting cures radiation sickness, helps keep you warm from that pesky nuclear winter, and a chunky sweater (100% wool, of course) can keep a family of four fed for a month.
