the perfect sweater!

... many months in the knitting (well, actually, only about 3 days in the knitting but spread out over a long time). The pattern is found at masondixonknitting.com.

This is a detail of the LOVELY yarn:


Yarn: Fleece Artist Kid Silk 2 ply (70% kid, 30% silk) - most of two skeins (total weight approx. 450 g). Colour is called "blue rainbow"
Needle size: 4 mm (bamboo)
size: small

I loved working with this yarn - and the sweater will be luxurious to wear. For once, am hoping for cold weather tomorrow.

And - the sweater fits as though it were made for me!
