Nu er den vasket og tør og så skal den med til USA, så niecen kan få den. Jeg er yderst taknemmelig for, at det ikke er mig der skal bruge sådan en fin, hvid sweater - jeg ville garanteret skynde mig at spilde noget farveægte på den!
And then the pretty Rowan-sweater got done! It took an entire month using size 4 and 4.5 mm needles, but it was worth the work. All the cables look really nice, and it wasn't too difficult sewing the cable to the neck.
Now it is washed and dry, and then it will go to the US to my niece. I'm really grateful that I'm not the one using a pretty, white sweater like this - I would immediately spill something really colorful and dye-fast on it!
Min niece glæder sig til at få den og har lovet at gå med den, selv om det er halv-varmt i Michigan allerede. Nu skal den bare pakkes i plastic, så den ikke får pletter på vej derover! Jeg er så DÅRLIG til hvidt tøj og bliver nærmest paranoid!
The sweater is called "Ewden", the yarn is Rowan Alpaca Merino DK, and it's really delicious and soft. It's nice and warm and only weighs 265 grams. The yarn is made of a knit thread and leads to a really nice structure. I bought it at Tine's place.
My niece is really looking forward to having it and promised to wear it, although it's half summer in Michigan already. Now I just need to wrap it in plastic, to protect it from spots on the way there! I am incompatible with white clothes, which makes me paranoid!
