FO: The "Test"-sweater EDIT: pattern added!
I just realized that it has been quite some time since I posted a FO here(lack of time+study kept me busy), so I thought I'll just post my latest one(for others check my blog ).
It's a sweater I call the "Test"-sweater. As the name indicates I knitted it as a test for another sweater out of some Hipknits silk. But since the silk is not cheap and doesn't like to be frogged many times I decided to knit this "test"-sweater. Oh, it's my own pattern btw.
The yarn used is "Linie 12 Clip" from Online, a cotton yarn in a color between pink and orange(depending on light). It's a sweater knit from the top down with an easy lace pattern.
As I already promised on my blog, I'll write down the pattern after knitting the silk version and post it.

Wow! You're so clever! I love the look of the lacey pattern at the bottom - hope the silk one turns out just perfect again like this one - I admire your restraint, knitting a practice project first!
