Happy Sweater

Last Friday I finished my sweater.  I washed and blocked it last weekend. Yesterday, I could try it on. For me a very exciting moment with a bit of fear.... Would it fit??
When I tried it on and took a look in the mirror I had an "oooh my god" moment.
I'm so happy with the result. The pattern is wonderful. 
I could make a picture of the folded sweater.
But I think you can see the result better when I have it on. 

(So sorry for the overload of pictures of myself... )









Pattern is Corona Borealis by Ann Kingstone
Yarn: J.C. Rennie Lambswool
Needle: 3, 5 mm

Oh my, you are so talented. My mother is left handed and said she couldn't teach me to knit so I didn't learn until much later in life. I guess that is why I quilt! You look stunning in your new sweater!

Oh this looks wonderful on you.....What a perfect choice of colors for you, too.
But as an old lady, I want to wear a turtleneck under a sweater like this! ;->

Congratulations on your smashing success! You look so beautiful and your happiness shines through. I think my favorite parts are neckline-so flattering and youthfully 'hip' & the contrasting colored design that highlights it,(also bringing attention to a lovely aspect of the brilliant design & workmanship). Never too many pictures~thank you!

Hello, I adore your sweater CHEER it suits you to wonder! Would have you the kindness to indicate the colours of the wools to me which you chose with their quantity per color as well as the size that you knitted because we have the same gauge. I see that we share several passions besides knitting, I also make patchwork. I wish you a beautiful day and with the pleasure of reading you. Thank you in advance.
