To knit, just fine. To write, not so fine. It was a difficult pattern to write as I wanted to keep the sheep both in row over the sleeves and body, and in height, getting smaller and smaller in an orderly fashion. At the same time.
Thank you so much for the kindest test knitters ever (even though I heard it when you threw it in the wall at some time, FrkChilli!)

The pattern is published both in Norwegian and in English per July 2013.

How many ways are there to say I love Spindrift? Only time will show, I suppose, by knitting lots and lots and lots. I have uploaded 2 pictures showing 6 possible colour combination with Spindrift. And there are more, think reds on black? Greys on black (or off white)? A rainbow combination?

In this yellow the colors 289/Gold, 365/Chartreuse, 998/Autumn, 1160/Scotch Broom,7181/Pistachio, 429/Old Gold (or it might be 230/Yellow Ochre - i have lost the label) are used.

This small cardigan for my younger grandchild (12-18m this winter) weights 102 gram! I used less than 2 skeins of natural white and 6 different yellow-green tones. All the rows of sheep are different in some small detail, and I have tried to make their feet different too, on each row.

It is knitted from the bottom up, with a yoke instead of with raglan. I suppose it could have been a sweater too.
