New knitting magazine

came with the post today.
There were lot of nice summer patterns to knit
and interesting articles to read.
It was wonderful to sit out for a little sun and look through the magazine, read the articles and dream about those nice summer knitwear I wanted to knit.

I finished a "Lopapeysa" wich is not in the traditional style the other day.
It is covered with rope-pattern and lace-holes in between.
I'm not going to say how long it took to knit this sweater but it was a veeeery long time, mainly because I got into trouble with the pattern, and also managed entirely by self to make mistakes in it and had therefore to take some pauses knitting it.

I do not quite understand what wet Lopasweater is irresistable for some cats but this one was sleeping on it for a considerable time.

My Norveginan sweater

is ready.

I'm very happy with it (like with most of the things í knit or crochet or..., hehe). And the buttons, so pretty.

The pattern is from an old copy of "Prjónablaðinu Ýr" (and originally  from Sandnes yarn).  I made no changes with the pattern or the color choice, which is pretty unusual for me. If anything should have been knitted differently, I should maybe have made it 4 cm longer.

The color combination is great and the pattern is beautiful. I had to rip out 11 rounds in the pattern, but it was ok because it was quite okay to knit it again.
