Plotulopi Sweater

I knew this sweater would find a campaign! It is a small adult size, knit of Icelandic plotulopi which is unspun roving. It is very light and VERY warm, too warm for me to be comfortable. The pattern is a traditional pattern that I followed pretty much exactly so I would learn how to make this type of sweater. There are NO seams, just a bit of grafting at the underarm. I entered the sweater in a local fair earlier this month and it took fourth place. I didn't see what the other entries were like but I am OK with fourth. Now it will go to keep some child warm and I hope he or she likes it.

WOW! A child in Afghanistan is going to be quite warm with this sweater.

This is an example that for many of us, it's the knitting...whether the challenge of a new stitch or pattern, a new yarn to try or simply the calming effect knitting gives that keeps us going. And to be able to share with others is icing on the cake.

I'm using 'knitting' as in inclusive word because that's what I do. I know there are crocheters who read this...this goes for them, too.
