FO Riddari - My Knight!

Isn't he lovely! My Knight in shining armour - my Riddari (or Riddare as we say in Swedish). Finally a perfect fit. The darker "spots" are just the shadows, since I spent the entire Sunday finishing it, it is a bit late... Spring has arrived. But it is still rather cold outside - the daylight is back. This is a classic Lopi-sweater - in Lett-Lopi from Istex. And the white is 2-strands of Plötulopi. Very 100% wool. Very rewarding to knit. Not as soft as Plötulopi, using needles 3.5 mm (and 4). I am satisfied. I feel like my knitting is progressing. The birds are singing. The best time of the year. The entire summer in front of you!
