Another one bites the dust!

Yup, more knitting!
This was made as a special request for my nephew who is 16 years old. He wanted an old fashioned but traditional Icelandic wool sweater. So I suggested the free patterns found here (sorry, they are in Icelandic only) and he found one that he loved. So, the wool was bought and delivered and I started it. Last night I finished it and tonight he came over to pick it up. I couldn’t take pictures of him wearing it since it is too dark for picture taking, but hopefully one day I can show you a picture of him in it.

  8. Gorgeous. I love “old fashioned but traditional Icelandic sweaters.” (We just call them Icelandic sweaters, sorry.) I used to have a one done up in raspberry Lopi. I wonder what became of it. (Besides the sweater becoming too small…or was that me too big?)
