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!
