Celtic Knot Sweater Nearing Completion

I'm finally seaming the Celtic Knot Sweater! I've actually only got a wee bit of the seaming left, but these photos are from several days ago when the light was good (finally) for showing off the knot:

I'm glad I ordered two extra balls! I only needed one extra, but one too many is way better than one too few... especially with how fast that yarn sold out at Elann! The Elann brand 100% silk seems the same as the Estelle (a friend bought some of the Elann brand version), but it would have been a different dye lot.

Wow, that is beautiful. Somehow I don't remember seeing it here before (but that's typical for me).

I love it, can't wait to see it done!

Thanks!

Before now it's always looked like boring orange rectangles, because I didn't have good light. The flash really washes out the cables.

YOu chose a beautiful color and you did a great job, Andrea!

noricum said...

Thanks! I think Jess was just teasing me about liking blue. ;)

what a beautiful sweater! and such a gorgeous color, would you be interested in knitting another and selling it?

noricum said...

Thank you, but no.

It wasn't that hard to knit... why don't you knit one yourself?
