More Bohus Knitting - Skogsmörkret

So I digged in to my christmas present to my beloved. It is the Bohusknitting sweater Skogsmörkret "Forest darkness", an UFO that has been waiting to get picked up. It is black with a wonderful greenish blue. Beatuiful and like the soft touch of my dearest, the yarn is just wonderful to knit. It is of course from Solsilke (se link on the right). I have now digged into what I call the motorway knitting. That is I'm done with all the pattern, and have the body and arms downwards (you knit this from the top down). I have counted that it is about 8 full days of knittingleft to do, so when working, It might take quite some time.... but hopefully it will be done until Christmas. The picture is from Solveig's cardigan with same pattern.

Hi Wendy!
I saw yours in green?! I'm doing mine in black as background colour. Yes, isn't the yarn so wonderful to knit! I also noted that your blog was just filled with comments. I'm a true Bohus fan, and have bought most of Solveig's kits... Also had the luck to see several original Bohus knittings in real! But I guess I never get enough! You blog isnfantastic by the way. Very impressed with all your Starmore's!
