FO- White Peony sweater

It is just stunning - The wonderful flowers that blum, and that I made a sweater that fit just perfect. Ok, I admit, I had to reknit the collar (after fastening it was much to big following the Solveig Hisdahl - Poetry of Stitches (Dikt i maskor)) pattern, I ripped it up and followed my heart, and I am so content. It is just perfect. Colors are so me, and And the yarn PT2 (Per Tyving 2-thread) in pure wool was just honest norweigan wool. It was a really rewarding knit, and I knitted ONE sleeve in a day - but each row of the body took almost a week, so. Im so happy. It is not blocked yet.. but it does not matter. As long as it does not shrink ;-) It is called peony sweater, and of course - I love that I have my garden full of white peonies. (actually 4 different bunches blooming right now. Stressful time though, Weeds are growing, kitchen still needs more work, and both work and research is just very very busy. And all we want is relax and enjoy the beautiful summer (even if it rains it is just fab). And did I mention the sweater is comfortable too? What a hit! I love the lime-olive - and the marine blue edge makes a great edge. Well, I finally got some yarn (from England) so I can complete the COAT. Warm and wintery, but it would be nice. Otherwise I have decided to go on "Cast On Mania - training camp" in June, and cast on at least 10 new items. It is so exiting.
