….finally….after months of working on this on and off

got the yarn back in 2017, when Isabel (yes, her name is Isabel too ;) came all the way from Australia to Germany to meet her mom - and squeezed in a day trip to Frankfurt where the two of us met

the yarn is just lovely - a merino (70%) alpaca (30%) blend that knits up to a heavenly soft and ‘old sweatshirt like’ fabric - I could live in this sweater! (…I have to block it first, but then ;)

more on the oversized range regarding fit, with a still unfinished neckline (I will probably leave it the way it is now and add a few finishing options to the pattern) and a rather cropped length

randomly added purl sections (I translated the morse code into knitting at some points) make this so cute…and a pretty cool canvas for a statement, right?

Pattern will be ready for testing as soon as I made up my mind about the neck (and the options to be added to the pattern)

please let noddingviolets know about your interest in testing - she will take a note of your interest and when it comes to testing, we will choose testers from all who expressed their interest and send out a test call to them
