Woolen delight

By spotogspindel | January 26, 2010

It´s been a cold winter. As you all know. I am always a bit disappointed at the winter-collections in the shops. So many lovely sweaters, and so few of them in wool. Acrylics doesn´t make me too happy, and it certainly doesn´t make me warm. So when I saw this lovely 100% wool tweed-jersey fabric at a fabric-shop in Oslo this weekend, I simply had to get some. Part of the workshop this weekend was about pattern-making, and I used the pattern I made, to cut the pieces for the sweater. A little later on in the day, we had a crash-course on the overlock-machine. All in all it took me less about half-an-hour to throw this thing together, both the pattern and the sewing. (But that is of course because I´ve done similar ones before)

The best part is: it is yummy-warm!
