Raglan Wool Sweater for a Man

I got some really really great wool, and I think it's turning me into a yarn snob. It's so furry and squishy and lustrous! I ordered this from Knitpicks. 100% wool, worsted weight, and the color is called "Caribou". I started working with a vintage pattern for a men's sweater. Then I decided I liked the Wrong Side better, so I made that the right side. I also changed the decreases at the top. I think it will make it fit better. Look at those luscious stitches! On the needle right now are the pocket linings.

I'm allergic to wool, but I do love the way a good wool sweater looks!

I just wish I could wear one.
