Half a day sweater

Winter meets spring - woollen turtle neck sweater with snowdrops, completed in just a few hours. The lower body part and neck are worked in the round, sleeves are knitted flat and sewn on.

The sweater is in medium ladies' size in 1:12 scale: the body part measures 5 cm in height and 4 cm in width. It is knitted using lace weight merino wool (1400 meters per 100 g) and needles 1.5 mm (US size 000 apparently and not -1 as I first thought). Knitting tension is 60 stitches and 70 rows to 10 cm.

Here is the colour chart for snowdrops and grass, would probably pass for crocuses and cyclamens just as well.

  2. I selected you as one of the recipients because your blog is delightfully and restfully designed and you regularly share stamping, painting, yarnwork and other techniques.

  3. You're so funny!:) You're welcome. I know it will be very hard for some to produce 15 awards. Actually when I got the award and saw the requirements I had to swallow real hard, because I just didn't have the time. But my spirit seems to rise to a challenge on it's own. I knew it would take me an undetermined amount of time to do it, and I did in about 2 months, I think. You earned the award, whether you decide to nominate or not, so place it on your blog if you haven't already. I'm sorry about the 15 recipients thing. Maybe you can start keeping a list of sites you come across that you feel are candidates, even if it takes you 3 years...lol.
