*My own Norwegian
In German sweaters like this are simply called Norwegians, thus it seemed just appropriate to attend the concert of Kings Of Convenience (Norwegians!) in April wearing my very own Norwegian! Truly a motivation for finally finishing this Elizabeth Zimmermann Seamless Yoke Sweater.
Almost five months after having started working on it... happy it got finished eventually.
I love the yarn (ravelry link). It is soft and durable and gets more beautiful over time. The sweater has been worn almost every day since I finished it, been washed and gently dried in the dryer (to increase the density of the fabric a little), too, and see, photographed as well. After all. If I don't do it right after finishing, things tend to just be incorporated into my wardrobe, never being spoken of again.
The slight pilling which occurs under the arms and some other areas after some time of wearing the sweater is nothing to complain about. It is getting less and less and can easily be removed. I'd say in case of this yarn the fabric is simply maturing from its maiden condition right after being knitted. No fault or flaw.
The fit isn't perfect but well enough, with or without a blouse.
And as I said earlier, having been finishing this one, Dagny and I just love going out together, dressed all おそろい (osoroi = matching). So much fun!
Have a good day!
