Maybe they could knit Roswell a kitty-sweater too!! lol
Milla needs the sweater, she's hairless at the moment.
is good for that sort of thing. Lemme check to see if her fingers can handle the weight yarn you're going to need.
And what Hemingway is wearing is only partly a sweater. It looks to be a sweater/suede hybrid. Do you want a suede or fabric front, or are you just looking for the burly turtleneck style? (the non-sweater bit might be on top of knitted material - from the way it is hanging it looks to be that rather than a chest attached to knitted shoulders and neck).

You are toggling the Knitterverse. I need to learn to knit, myself. I'd like to make myself a whole series of necklers, little soft over the head turtlenecks, but not attached to a sweater. Just enough to keep my neck warm.
has a sweater neck & sleeves -- I guess it's kind of every thing but the sweater....
ooh. that is pretty dang awesome. I'd totally just buy one if I hadn't posted this first. Now the idea of a one-of-a-kind blog-inspired-hybrid is ringing my bells. Plus, I'd rather spend my money on blog-peeps if I have the opportunity. How did you find that so quick?
so true. thanks for pointing that out.
Those are not uncommon sweaters over here.
The usual ones are the ones with suede on the shoulders, but I have seen a suede front panel one a few years ago.
I am going to repost and nudge a friend who knits. She may be interested in a commission.
At any other time of the year, I would be at your doorstep with yarn I'm fairly sure matches and what looks like a pair of fairly small circular needles.
The giant pile of books currently sitting on me (aka grad school) is rather a hindrence these days, however, I think a hemingway-esque collar would be rather quick and simple, being so unfitted and such.
woo hoo! we must meet at some point in time anyway. when's grad school over?
You have many knitter fans, including myself. I'll spread this around Ravelry and I'm sure I can find a suitable qualified person quickly.
Judging from past comments, I think that my reader base goes like this:
2) pet people
4) gun owners
5) zombie hunters
6) science-fiction fans
8) Dresden Doll fans
Hi there. I'm a knitter. Possibly a little far away to be of any use to you though in Australia. :)
But seriously, if you want something hand made, best place to ask is Alchemy on Etsy. You'll find someone who'll make what you want for the price you want. Just so you're pre-warned though, a man sized sweater isn't a small job! ;)
i don't want a whole sweater, i just want a neck attached to the one i got!
I'm a knitter and could TOTALLY do something like this for you, I'm going to e-mail you right now.
i wonder if it would be possible to knit a carrying case/pouch/sweater-attachment for roswell.
This would be even easier than the neck part. No picking up old stitches!
kyle, dude. seriously. ros is way more interesting (not to mention photogenic) than your sweater.
I'm also a knitter who could totally hook you up, but I imagine you have lots of offers already so I'll do some mini sweaters instead. I love the idea of helping the homeless in such a great way. Thank you for posting about this. I'm going to repost your post so my knitting friends can get in on the action. :D
