Notes

I really love the result.
The yarn is not very soft even after i washed it, but when i wear it it’s really ok, even with a short sleeves tshirt under !

A year and a half later
I wear it all the times in winter, that’s my favorite pullover. It did not pill at all, did not move or grow.

1st and 2nd pictures : I washed it with the machine (cold program). Those where taken 1.5 years after : as you can see, the stitches are intact, no pilling, perfect.
You can check my review of this yarn here. The color did not change, even if the pictures seem to show the contrary, it’s just that the light is different :)

2 years later
Last picture : my very first wear and tear hole in a knitting project. I cross my finger i can find some left over yarn from this one to repair it.
found it, it’s all new and perfect again :)
