St. Brigid: attaching neckband, a photo by Asplund on Flickr.
I added a finishing touch of my own: framing the sleeves with cables that slant in opposite directions. When joined by the sleeve seam they form a new cable pattern.
With this sweater finished I thought I'd return to the 19th century-style "spedetröja" I started a some time ago and that has been lying waiting patiently in my bag the past couple of weeks. But lying under what? Look at the tip of the needle! Perhaps it bent out of resentment being neglected.
Det er den aller vakraste gensaren som finst! Ein vakker dag skal eg ta motet til meg og lage min eigen :o)
Wow, that sweater looks fantastic!
The cables are gorgeous. I really like the attached neck; it's worth the extra effort.
Meget meget smuk bluse
og et flot stykke håndværk.
Just beautiful! Congratulations. I find your knitting so inspirational and hope someday to be the craftsman you are. Thank you for sharing your lovely work.
OMG! Can it be more perfect ? Love it , I wonder what happened to your needel ...
The sweater is spectacular and I agree that the cabled neckband is the right finishing touch. Very clever sleeve seam - you never cease to amaze me.

Glad I stopped by today as I'm planning my St. Brigid. Love what you did to the sleeve. It's beautiful.
Love that you showed the neckband almost on, so much more potent somehow than the finished sweater. And what a glorious sweater it is, Starmore for presdient indeed.
