Finished and blocked Lopi sweater, just in time. Flying to Iceland tomorrow for some R&R with friends. This sweater should be WARM, at least warmer than I'll ever need in Central California. It was a fun knit and really my first bit of color work of this size Yarn is the Lett Lopi yarn knitted on size US6 and US7 needles in the round, bottom up to sleeves, then sleeves are knitted and all are attached and yoke is completed.

That is a very nice piece of knitting. I like the triangle and slanting rectangles with the color progression. Very sophisticated. Enjoy your trip and the chance to show off your new sweater.
