This title makes me think of the time I was addicted to Thai kickboxing...blocking takes on a completely different meaning when you're talking punching and kicking!
Anyway, here's the body of Nerdy Hubby's sweater...ain't it purdy?
Unfortunately, the yarn and cables don't show up so well here, but I've got a close-up photo of the cable, which I'll post next...
The color is pretty accurate, though--the yarn is charcoal gray, with flecks of pumpkin, olive green, and some ochre. Really beautiful!
