I have ben knitting and knitting, and purling and purling for ages! :teehee:

But the result is nice! A perfect slim-fit sweater for my daughter. I have used Opal 4 ply yarn, and the whole sweater is only 305 grams! I have knitted it neck down, needles 2,5 mm. She is a small european size 38.

Mmm Opal is a sock yarn. 80% wool, superwash and 20 % nylon.

Wow!!

And I thought just knitting socks with sock yarn was labor intensive!! How many skeins did that take you?

Loverly sweater and your DD looks great in it.
Did you follow a pattern or make it up yourself?

This sweater is great. In sock weight yarn is a lot of work, but definitely worth it. And you can get so much farther, just 300 grams. Perfect sweater.

3 skeins, and a little bit. It is 304 grams.
Not much yarn, at all!
