Stash Buster #9: Valentine's Giftie for my Hubby - A Luscious Striped Finlayson

The Finlayson is vying for the most used pattern in my stash right now.  My DH has a Grey one and this one.  My DF has a BEAUTIFUL ponte one.  My Size S DS (the elder) has one and there is another on my sewing mat right now.

I have made this in Jersey, Ponte, Heavy Weight Knit, and next is a lightweight thermal
This one is in a heavy weight knit - has great body, and looks great on DH (I added a little width to the front above the waistline this time - he's not shy in it at all)  He has worn it 4 times.  <GRIN>
I am proud of the stripe matching at the shoulder and sides of this one.

I have just enough left to do some accent pieces for another one for my son - Stash Buster #13(ish)
