Lopi Sweater

I have finished my Lopi Sweater--and this gives me a chance to show off my new woolly board. I bought the woolly board from Camilla Valley Farm in Canada. The shipping was fast and the cost reasonable. The woolly board was easy to put together and high quality. I'm thrilled to have this as the biggest problem with knitting in Texas is getting yarn to dry quickly. This contraption allows air to circulate and it stretches multi colored knits well.

The sweater is Giselda from the Best of Lopi pattern book. This is the first sweater that I have knit entirely in the round, and it was a fabulous experience! I love how fast this scratchy wool knits, and the color work was a joy. Plus, the sweater fits wonderfully! If I can brave the 100 F temperatures, I'll get the hubby to take a picture!

I used my own color combination, because I wanted a grey/black body to the sweater. I used size 7 needles and the yarn that I purchased on sale from webs. I actually have enough left over that I can make a matching set of mittens!
