He says She says

He says that it's too tight and not "a guy colour".
She says it's fitted and the colours are deep and rich yet darkly masculine (and certainly does not refer to the purple as "lilac" or "lavender" in his presence).

I think that Kyle is handsome anyway and that the sweater only makes him more so. But since when has a teenage boy listened to what his mother wants hime to wear! LMAO
Well, I love it and gladly wear it. Kyle really thought that he would like it, or maybe he was just being sweet because I wanted to make it for him so much. Anyway, this is Kyle wearing his my York from Noro Knits by Jane Ellison.
Kenny is trying to make a sweater selection for some Iro that he has and has asked for input. Now I know that you are all very shy, but that you do have opinions. Canadians can practice their voting by going over and letting Kenny know what you think.

It doesn't look terribly fitted on Kyle - I made it so that he could grow into it a bit. (I have truly deluded myself into believing that he may still want to wear it at some future time!) My only change for this sweater would be to shorten up the armholes a bit.

  1. I think Kyle looks very handsome in York and I do not see any lavender or lilac ;-)

    I just noticed the Knotted Openwork Scarf on your side bar - I love that pattern, I can't believe you wrote it! I am making it in Knit Picks Andean Treasure in Summer Sky.

  2. Brian thinks it looks good. He doesn't see any girly colours.

  3. the sweater looks excellent on him - you don't really see the purple but strong men aren't intimidated by colours like pink or mauve - he should wear it with confidence!

  5. I think the sweater looks great on him, but what do I know ... I'm only a mother too. *lol* You did a wonderful job. :)

  7. The sweater looks great but I can kinda agree with Kyle. It's a bit much for a teenage boy. My teenage cousin only wears solids and mostly blue,black,tan, and white. It's the "whole blending in and not standing out" thing. I can see him really pulling it off when he's a little bit older and more confident with the color scheme.

  8. You son doesn't know what he's talking about. Tell him that this fashion tip is coming from a classy gay guy... well, maybe not. But that York cardigan is beautiful on him. Yes, it's a tad bit big, but I could just imagine that on him when he grows up.... it looks great. Thanks for posting the picture. Now I think I'll make york using the original kureyon and just make something else with Iro.

    Hi,Wannietta it is your cousin Donna. Kyle looks great in the sweater but from one mom to another mom with teenage boys I know that Brent and Cody would not wear the sweater either. That is just not the style they like to wear these days. I do not even buy them clothes anymore i just give them money and they buy what they like. Their taste is so different then mine.I think you did a great job though.

  10. I love it and think Kyle is truly handsome, but I do think it is not quite masculine enough. Love the colors!

  11. Your son is very handsome and looks great in that sweater. However, I used to work as a highschool teacher until last year . . . and I'm sure that he'd rather wear something hideously gross like all the other boys in high school.

    Perhaps its good that you made it big. Perhaps as he matures, his tastes will mature too . . . and he'll realize how lucky he is to have a talented mother who can make really stylish clothing.

  12. I agree with the celtic knitter. When Kyle matures a little more, he will definitely take that sweater back from you! :-)
