done like dinner


Pattern: Vancouver 2010 Adult Pullover by Dale of Norway/Dale Design
Yarn: Dale of Norway/Dalegarn Falk in colours black (#90), white (#20) and red (#4018)

Whew. I was happy to weave in my last end on this puppy, though it really was a fun sweater to knit. It has the shock cord at the bottom to cinch it in, the zippered neck (I bought the official Dale zipper) with the doubled collar (black on the outside, red inside), the cool badge. It seems warm and comfortable. It should fit the boy for several years. I just wish it wasn't so warm around here so he could wear it once or twice before next winter.

Now back to our regularly scheduled knitting...
