Boxy Sweater is Finished!

Woohoo!!  This is the "preblock" photo, but here it is:
I am hoping after drying the ribbed hem will lie flat and maybe the sleeves will relax a bit--they are a little snug on me.  I did wear it Monday and love it!  I wore a t-shirt underneath.  I think I will get a lot of wear out of it--it is light weight, which is good for our mild coastal winters. The pattern is Boxy, by Joji Locatelli.  Yarn is Wollemeise Pure in Mas Jung color.

While I am debating on the next project, either Drachenfels (shawl) or Vodka Lemonade(cardigan), I am working on Kevin's socks.  I always have socks in progress.  My favorite mindless knitting!
I am about 1" -2" from starting the toe.  he likes his socks a little longer, so I need three skeins of Paton's Kroy (color denim jaquard) to make a pair for him.  Luckily, one of my crafty buddies had purchased extra skeins for a shawl she was crocheting (on big clearance too!) and gave me a third skein.

What is on your needles??
