10.1.14

in my wardrobe

I have quite a pile of un-finished projects. 
One of the resolutions I made last year was to finish any project before I'd start a new one, 
obviously it didn't happen. 
But, I'm definitely trying hard and I finished this pullover before the end of last year.
It's a simplification of this pattern  knitted with Quince and co wool, basically a neck down pattern. 
It's quite bulky and very, very warm. A happy addition to my wardrobe.
Money spent in quality yarns is never wasted.

*update 11/01: in the second image I was trying to do the focus...I like it and I added it here.

Both pattern & wool look so wonderful, specially on you, dear Alessandra ! Good job on the knitting, that's one of the many skills I do not have !

Oh cara, non torturarti!!! Almeno tu riesci ad iniziarli e poi li puoi sempre finire in base alle priorità! E le priorità cambiano ogni giorno, si sa. Peggio sto io che compro tutto l'occorrente (quando non ne ho già), faccio mille ricerche, studio, ecc e poi non inizio oppure inizio dall'ultimo nella lista delle priorità! Caotica ma mi diverto! :))))
