Knitted "Old Man" Sweater for Baby

This was a gift for my co-workers baby boy.  It was a pleasure to take up my knitting needles again, and I loved working with the Indigo Sirdar Snuggly that I purchased from Yarn Canada.  Funny that every pattern I have picked up lately has had the same cable pattern.  Love how this one turned out.

While knitting this sweater I was reading the Ann Hood book, The Knitting Circle.  This is a great read for all, but especially if you are a knitter an isn't it true that when you knit you knit love into every stitch. 

Great pattern for an intermediate knitter due to the cables, and the raglan sleeve shaping. Let me know what you think of this "Old Man Sweater"
