Per 50 years! and Stone Circles completed!

 It is my wonderful husbands 50th birthday today. And Olympics is of course starting in his honour ;-)
My dearest wears Kaffe Fassett's "Stone Circles", that could be called either Pebbles, or why not "Water drops". I think that is more suitable. Washed soft, and with a lot of cutting, fixing and extra work I am so happy it works out.
It is a mix of yarn, Rowan Scottish tweed, Gunga Din, Mojärv 2-thread, Klippan, Wollmeise, Färgkraft 1thread and Rauma Finull (from cone, all the white), which I have used in mixed and together, all in wool of course. But I had to use some Bohus for the collar to make it extra soft. I do want him to wear it. Of course much to hot today - when the sun actually shines. But I hope it will work out. It sure took me some months to knit, so I am very happy with the result. Pattern is available free (in Ravelry), but I had it in an old Rowan Magazine.
