Erin is totally done and worn for the first time today. Our local library has a knit hour twice a week. Today the librarian and I were the only ones there and we had a super time just yakking and knitting. Not sure she believed that Erin was a hand made sweater.










It was a fun knit. Not sure I would put 13 buttons on a sweater again as buttonholes aren' t my favorite thing. I will reblock the arms as I stretched them too long on the woolyboard. Scottish wool is pretty forgiving so it should block back a bit.


What's next? Working on Fulmar. Half a chart repeat to go to have the top of the back long enough. Next will be to pick up the front saddles and start the top of the cardigan fronts.

Wow this is amazing-tied the link from fair isle knitting but it didn't work-you must be thrilled with it-love the colour combination!
Wish it was cold enough in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)to wear something like this!

Dear Anne, your Erin is really lovely. I love the buttons. I bet Erin looks fabulous on. It makes me wonder just why I haven't knitted that beauty. I really like it - the colors are perfect and the 'beasties' delighful

Congratulations on a super FO.

It's unbelievable, that's why, it looks like it's machine knit, it's so even. Gorgeous colors too...you seem to have a talent for selecting colors.

This sweater is absolutely gorgeous. I'm working hard to learn to knit continental so that I can do colorwork two-handed. You are an inspiration!
