Featured Finds: Boy Meets Purl

With this section of my blog, I want to highlight the amazing, out-of-this-world, can't live without, things (whether that be a website, a craft book, or a pattern) that I happen across during my Internet stumbling, or stumbling in real life.  For the first edition of Featured Finds I chose to showcase the brilliant talent of a fellow male knitter.

Recently I've become obsessed with the idea of making my own sweater.  For those of you who don't know, I'm a self-proclaimed sweaterholic, and I'm proud of it!  At last count I own enough sweaters to wear a new one everyday for almost two months...that's around 60 sweaters!  I know what you are thinking...if you have that many sweaters why in the world would you want to make your own?  Surely you have enough already!

Enough sweaters?  NEVER!  You can never have too many sweaters, and it isn't like all 60 of them are the same...they are all snowflakes.  :D

But I digress.  Since I've become obsessed with this idea I have been scouring the Internet and knitting books for a modern, stylish pattern and have come up entirely empty handed!  That is until I happened upon this website, Boy Meets Purl.  EVERY SINGLE PATTERN IS AMAZING!  As soon as I saw the patterns, I bought them all!  Now I have the unfortunate dilemma of choosing between all of them for my first sweater project; however, that is a problem I'm happy to have.

So if you are hunting for a modern sweater pattern, whether you are a boy or girl (he has girl sweaters too!), visit his site and be amazed!
