Some green in the Spring snow!

That was indeed one of those sunny days but very windy and the light powder snow from the night before was furiously flying in the air, blinding the view, causing cars to stop and slide and roads to close. Don’t let the white fool you: spring is absolutely in the air!

For this cross-country skying escapade, pushed by the wind, I was wearing the Gamaldags sweater I knit for myself: I made the short version which suits my figure better and used for the main color Léttlopi bright green specially dyed for the Handknitting Association of Iceland (for sale on my website) and regular Léttlopi colors #1408, #1403 and #0051. Although that was the plan, I’m still amazed myself how so much different the yokes look when changing the colors and the way they are combined!

The pattern and kits are for sale on my website and finally also on Ravelry (you can now link your projects!)

And here is what it looks like on the inside!

PS: my students from the Edinburgh Yarn Festival will recognize the sweater (see East London Knit blogpost from March 31st, 2015), then half finished!
