The perfect bridal sweater

You may remember this blog post about the Fimmvörðuháls sweater I had made for a bride. Since then I received many questions about the sweater and more demands, among them this one:

“My name is Carla and I live in Alaska.  I am getting married in September to my love. I have been scouring the Internet for the perfect sweater to wear with my wedding dress and I stumbled upon your site!  My Fiancé is Norwegian and we are having a large Nordic wedding.The lopapeysa you made for the bride in your blog is absolutely stunning and exactly what I have been looking for.”

It’s not often that I make custom fit ready-made sweaters but I can’t say no to a bride… Fortunately Theodóra was here to help with the finishing!

And without further talking, here are pictures from Carla’s wedding (credit to those amazing photos goes to Anna Christine)…
