I bought this great icebreaker material at the local fabric-a-brac. Icebreaker clothes are made of very cool material for outdoor wear. I'd been saving this material for a while, and decided to use it to make my first ever boys sweatshirt. Shows the importance of making something new out of cheap material first! The zip is even with the bottom and the pockets align, but it finishes an inch short of the neckline. Shows which end I started at! Its nice and warm, but I really should finish off the sleeves for wearing next winter. Still, if I wait till next winter to do the sleeves, it won't matter how much eldest son has grown in the meantime!
