It's almost finished as I joined up the sleeves with the body and completed the colour work in the yolk.
I love this colour-work pattern (even if it is a 30 stitch repeat). It's based on some of the oldest known knitted artifacts. I feel a real sense of connection with all the knitters around the world and when I knit this. We may all be different people knitting different things at different times with every other thing about our lives being different. But, we all knit. It makes me feel very fortunate to be part of such a noble tradition. I think the combination of all the different elements of this sweater being from different times and different places really brings that feeling home for me.

The Sweater Adventures
I am thinking that I really should give The Sweater a proper name soon.
