I just finished putting the buttons on the most amazing sweater. It’s downright epic.
I have misplaced my camera, so you’ll have to go by scrappy webcam-photos. But trust me when I say that it’s just perfect.
I used Elizabeth Zimmermann’s directions for the “Three and One Sweater” from the Opinionated Knitter, but just freestyled the colour-pattern, because I cannot be contained by directions. It extra-long, to fit my relatively long torso, it’s fitted perfectly to my measurements and it’s light as a feather – only 250 grams. If you’re a non-yarnie, that means I’ve knitted this with a very thin thread – running 600 metres pr. 100 grams. It’s the New Zealand Lambswool (available here) I love this yarn, it doesn’t scratch at all, and the colours are amazing. Buttons are from Wollsucht in Flensburg – an amazing yarn shop, I have to say.
