I had started this sweater for my sister in November. It was meant to be a Christmas present for her.The pattern is from Hjertegarn and the yarn is soft wool - Lima. I didn't want some itchy yarn for my sister ;0)
But when I all of a sudden had to go to hospital in the beginning of December, I thought to myself that my sister would have to settle for a sweater without sleeves for a while!
Home from hospital I didn't feel fit to knit, but at the same time I really needed to make something with my hands......and I thought that it was so annoying that I couldn't finish the present in time for Christmas. All I had to do was let time pass by.
Luckily it all got a bit better later on and I started working on the sweater. Due to the big needles it didn't take that long to get it done.
Then I only had to wait and see if she liked it and whether it would fit? I did however have some secret conversations with my brother in law, where he told me the measurements of my sister's arms. (Secretly taken from an old sweater of hers).
She liked it!! And now Anne-Sophie would love one too.....
