I took my little helper with me, she wasn´t agreeing with all my color choices and tried to convince me to buy some additional yarns in colors she preferred (black with glitter (gold/silver) are apparently her thing along with acrylic yarns.. not exactly my cup of tea).. she through down 3 shelves full of yarn. I think this was the last time for a while I took her with me yarn shopping.
The pattern I´m knitting is an old Icelandic pattern.
The pattern has been republished, in the book "Knitting with Icelandic wool" so the pattern can be found in English as well.
I fell in love with the color combination in this sweater (eventhough I promised my self to use the sheep's-colors... the natural color of the sheep's as in the picture above).
There is also a sweater on Ravelry with similar color combination (shade darker main color)
I now need to find the perfect buttons, any suggestions on where to find similar buttons (metal) to these on e-bay or anywhere else where they don´t cost an arm or a foot?
