FO: St Brigid finally got its zipper!

It is wonderful - the St Brigid, from the knitting master - Alice Starmore. I reworked it as a cardigan, and put a zipper in, a great idea, since it more a "jacket" in this thick yarn - bought on a great trip with Sticka to the Dala-Floda Spinnery - Vålbergs! And the yarn is also Vålbergs - very much dyed of the old master. As you can see - with some interesting colour-changes. Ok - I am seriously thinking of knitting this again some day. In thinner yarn, and as a sweater. It has actually been ready since November about two years ago (rather embarassing to tell)... but it just took me the best so long to get the zipper in place... But - I am happy I did!
Perfect for the first snow fall, and to snuggle up in!
Time to get ready for the holidays! Hopefully filled with lots of knitting!

Oj oj vilken snygg jacka! Det måste ha gått åt en massa timmar till alla flätor...en mycket härlig färgton, tror den kan likna rinnande honung.
