Starmore-mates

Dear friend and soul knitter "Born to knit" and I at a get-together for knitters yesterday afternoon. We'd known each other for quite some time through our Flickr photos before we finally met a few years ago - and today we even live in the same area of Stockholm. Thanks Maria for being a photographer as well as knitter!

Alice Starmore's "Henry VIII" was so much fun to knit and I'm in love with the colours: they're stunning indoors and almost explode in daylight. Well, daylightish. I normally choose projects that I want to make and am less interested in the finished garments - but in this case I wanted the sweater just as much as I wanted the joy of making it.

The sweater is very comfortable too (Starmore's 2ply Hebridean wool), and so warm I actually hope it gets a bit colder. Never thought I'd write something like that - until the sweater was finished I actually enjoyed our mild winter.
