steeking!!!

This year I have a knitting plan to accomplish: to produce a sweater each for my family. It's quite a task, and I foresee I'll need more than a year, but I have thrown myself into it with enthusiasm.

I have already produced a nice sweater for mum, so I just need only anothe 6 sweaters after all (+ one for myself, maybe).

So the most sensible plan was to start with the smaller one.....

and maybe throw in something new to learn, such as steeking! And color work, using icelandic wool.

The pattern is Olga by Olga Hallgrímsdóttir.
It is really easy and satisfying.

And it was a success!
