Celtic Knot Pullover

It's done! And just in the nick of time too. My parcel from Elann arrived this afternoon as I was putting the finishing touches on an "extra" neckline.



The original rolled neckline was too loose and gaping for my liking so I added a second, rolled neckline just inside. It brings the neckline up and in a little and I think it also gives the sweater a more finished look.

The sweater fits great, is comfortable and looks pretty good too. Isn't it great when that happens?!

When my parcel arrived, I didn't open it even though I know it contains some lovely new yarn and two books I have really been wanting. I had promised myself that I would finish my sweater and write a blog entry about it before getting involved with something new. Now with those two tasks accomplished........it's time to cook supper. Rats.

Hmmm....Elann for dessert?

It's absolutely gorgeous! And the color is perfect. I've asked for the chart to be mailed to me. It's your fault. ;)

I will start this sweater mid-Summer for next Fall.

I love the tweedy look of the Stone Cotton. The color looks lovely on you. I think the 2nd rolled collar was a good idea. I tried to imagine the sweater without it, and it just wouldn't have been as nice.
