FO - Choclate Crossing

Ok - Choclate Crossing is ready - Midsummer day! After intense rain-showers and (still) some nasty cold, (but I do get great service when I am sick...). We sneak a photo in the shower breaks posing on our "mediterran" wall... with cermic pots made by me and the great blue lobelia in flowers... Now This knit is not done in a week (which you can believe if you follow the blog)... I knit a lot of knits simultaniously, and this has followed me in the car commuting to work for a very long time. (No, I am NOT driving!)...The cables were so great, and the yarn - Malabrigo is the softest. Love the name colour of the yarn "Rich Choclate"... and the pattern is modified version from Interweave Knits (some years ago)..but I can for sure spot some strawberry in there..... Just need the champange ;-) Sweater is a bit to warm, but will be perfect for fall. Did not do all cables on the back, but some.....Have a wonderful Summer you out there! Take care!

That sweater is gorgeous and it looks so good on you! The pose wasn't as slippery as the one in your garden, eh?
