Life at its worst...

On holiday by Asplund
On holiday, a photo by Asplund on Flickr.
...should be like this: visiting dear friends, lovely weather and a bag full of knitting projects. Not to mention - but not in the photo - a lake nearby, delicious food and a bottle of champagne. (But this being life at its best is certainly good enough!)

It took some time to decide what kind of neckband to make for the "Mystic" sweater. The original has a cabled one; you knit it separately and sew it into place, which makes it similar to St. Brigid. However, I thought a turtleneck would look nice, and something simple would let the anchors be in focus. The ribbing is the same as for the cuffs (3 knit, 2 purl) to make it blend with the cable patterns.

"Så här ska det vara när det är som sämst," som en god vän brukar säga när vi har det som trevligast!

That sounds terrific! Wishing you a very happy holiday, and that the relaxation continues on afterwards.

I like the idea of a turtleneck to show off the anchors of your Mystic sweater.

Og du har ret, livet er dejligt med de ingredienser du nævner.
