From refined to rugged...

I got back to working on Lorenz's sweater (another project from Last Minute Knitted Gifts) last night.

No point in knitting on and on if he wasn't going to like it. He took a peak and gave me the green light, so I made some progress last night and now I'm starting to love it. Because of this wool's irregular dye lots, I'm switching between two skeins every couple of rows, which is producing a subtle variegated effect:
