Hand knitted pullover in blue. No chance to wear it this winter. All the snow went down in the USA, green winter in Germany. The sun is shining, birds are singing, it feels like spring.


Warm Wishes to all Cuties

How wonderful it would be to be able to knit like this. Your stitches are so neat and the pattern so wonderfully striking.
Here where I live in Australia it never gets cold enough to wear something so warm but I am sure down south in the winter they would love to have it to wear.

With my lousy low blood pressure I`m allways cold. When we went to Florida on vacation, I had 4 lb of wool in my luggage. The first two days my familly stayed inside, I on the porch, thawing and knitting happily away. Ahhhhh.... finally warm.

It's a shame that you can't wear it, but you could send it to me. I'd happily wear it for you. :)

Beautiful. If it was a little cold, you could wear this and be your own snow fall.

My mom and granny knitted every day from November till February and had no time to teach me. One day when I was 8 years old, I took the yarn and needles and went to our neighbours granny. She showed me to knit the right meshes. My aunt showed me the left stitches when I turned 11. From there on, I had to find out on my own.

I am amazed at the amount of work went into that sweater. Too bad you are not able to wear it right now. No snow in the part of USA where I am. Just rain, but cold enough where I would love to wear a sweater like this one.

The knitting does not take long. I`m a fast knitter. The most amount of work and time goes into the finishing. The knitting is fun, the finishing is ambition.

Your sweater is beautiful!
I, too, wish we had a bit of real winter - cold and sunny - instead of the autumn weather - drizzle, rain and too high temperatures for this time of the year.
