People's Choice

Remember your voting on a yarn color for my Olivier pullover?  The sweater is finished and I knew you'd all want to see it.  It was very cold during the photo shoot...not to much hanging around for retakes.


Actually, it's been done for a week but  had to wait for it's turn in the blog rota.  So, I've been wearing it to keep warm in our deep freeze this past couple of days.  I can report that it's warm, comfy and the yarn is so soft.  And I had enough left  to make a hat and neck warmer.



I love the cables and the collar.  There are also fake elbow patches but I'm not so crazy about those.  My elbows must be stuck in the wrong place - the patches are nowhere near them.  Not too hard, though, I could be tempted to make another.
Thanks, everyone, for choosing this color.  It's perfect.

Only a few days left to enter my giveaway draw.  Leave a comment on the Giveaway post - to the right in sidebar.

I looks great. I love the ribbing at the side seam and how they angle together.

It's beautiful, I love the collar and the variation in the stitching on the front! Now you are making me want to see those elbow patches!

Once again, I stand in awe of your talent with sticks and string. Your work is outstanding and the color looks perfect on you.

I hope it keeps you cozy during your deep freeze.

It really looks good on you. I was thinking about your sweater yesterday. This cold snap is a bit much.
