Tröja Lilah in Blueberry forest

Summer days are great days for knitting, finally a finished project! I adore the colour on this cardigan and although the motifs are a bit peculiar I am happy with how it turned out. I had intended to make it in a much bigger size but the lace took up much more yarn than I had anticipated so this is probably the the tightest yoke I have ever done, fortunately it fits nicely because it stretches so much.

I knitted the Lilah cardigan with Garnstudio Drops Alpaca yarn in the color denim (number 8120) using double threads on 4mm needles. 

 This is probably the best button row ever, something always happens when I knit the final edges and I have to fix them many times to get it right, this time it turned out perfect. Well almost perfect, you can't really see it from this picture but I lost the last ninth button and had to sew on a larger button instead... 

Some summer meditation by the lake, planning the next knitting project...
