Second 2012 Christmas Sweater

Christmas Sweater knitting has been slow going this summer, I  just finished my second of six...
Pattern: Tiny Top Down #608 by Cabin Fever (with modifications)
Yarn: Cascade 220
Colorway: Mallard and Cordovan
Amount: 2 skeins of each
Needle Size: US Size 5 and 6

The basic sweater line is from the Cabin Fever pattern but I added cuffs at the wrists and bottom.
I love this sweater for my youngest Grandkiddo! Earlier I had started this sweater for Nephew Joe. At first, I was concerned about the contrast between the two colors. I realized it wasn't the two color combinations bothering me but the age appropriateness of the colors for an 8th grader. In my school world it just wasn't going to work - I am almost certain it would have turned into an "Auntie" sweater onlypulled out when I appeared....
