Marine blue Neville fair-isle sweater - COMMISSION by KnitLizzy Marine blue Neville fair-isle sweater - COMMISSION by KnitLizzy
A commission for a friend of mine whom wanted to give her boyfriend a warm and traditional norwegian sweater for Christmas (he's from the UK). She contacted me ages ago with the idea, and at the end of august, I got the yarn in the mail to make it. I've been taking my sweet ass time with this one, but the result was so worth it! The reciever is tall and skinny so getting the measurements right was a pain. He's even thinner and taller than my boyfriend, so it does not fit him well at all, but he was my only model.

The yarn was Drop's Merino Extra Fine on 4mm needles

Holy Cow, I thought I recognized that Sweater! I'm working on the exact same pattern! (Although I'm designing my own pattern on the sweater)

 

It looks wonderful!~ Really love the Royal Blue colour, it makes the white stand out like snow~

Thank you  ^^ I worked really slow on this one cause there was no rush to get it finished, but I could maybe have finished it in 3-4 weeks if I wanted to

the only practice I seem to get is dishrags lately. Made some for gifts, now I have to keep churning them out to keep up with demand :)
