Where did you get the box pattern!! I love it. And can't wait to see a full shot of the sweater. Hmmm, maybe I should make an Antarctica sweater???

Brenda

Very nice box. I have great admiration for anyone who can create anything that requires a sewing machine!

margene

Whatever it is I love it! The sweater is good looking good, too. You never know who you'll have wanting to 'pet' you.

It's such a relief to have the unknown (outcome of vague instructions) behind us. The collar is great! And a zipper would be much easier than you think.... but won't those beautiful fasteners be sooo classy? Think of it as something you'll keep forever and how long most zippers actually last. heh

I've made the fabric bowls myself but never the boxes (don't own the book yet); its on my list of things to do this summer.

My father spent 4 summers at the South Pole. I was a novice knitter then and made him scarves but never a sweater. I'm sure Matt is very much enjoying his (and his time at the pole!)

MUHAHAHA sewing machines are taking over the knitting blog community! MUHAHAH! :)

I'm glad the collar worked out for you. The fabric box is gorgeous!

You must have been waiting to use that title for ages -- good pun! The sweater looks wonderful! Are you going to make another one to keep when this one goes to your mom?

Sharon

Blogdog, this isn't for my mom. It's for ME. I'm the MOM. I made an alpaca sweater for my son in Antarctica (Matt's Antarctica Sweater), and I loved it so much, I had to make one for me. In fact, it was MY mom who suggested that I make a jacket, rather than a pullover sweater like I did for my son. And it's loosely patterned after Sally Melville's Not Your Mother's Suit Coat in her Purl book. So I named it Mom's Antarctica Jacket. But it's mine mine mine. All mine.

Chris, the box pattern is from the book Fabric Boxes by Linda Johansen. There's also a title called Fabric Bowls available. I know the online bookclub, Crafter's Choice is carrying them. I got mine at Country Stitches, a local sewing/quilting store.

And Laura, I'm on my way out to Yarn Garden right now to get more of the fasteners.

Sharon, your box is adorable! you are inspiring me to dust off my sewing machine!

Karen

The jacket/sweater looks really nice and warm. I Bet it feels great on. I have been toying with buying sweater wizard but haven't made the leap yet. I am still trying to decide if it is beyond me at this time. Which other pattern did you generate with it?

General Ginger

Love that fabric box. Storage and beauty all in one package. Sounds like Matt gives a great testimonial for your knitting.
