It is Finished
Yes it is finally finished and as you can see by the photo there is a slight difference in colour of the neckband but on the whole not a bad match. I started my SILs jumper last night and it is the softest wool I have ever knitted. It is Grignasco Tyrol and consists of 60%wool, 30%alpaca and 10%acrylic and knits up to the exact tension of lopi but with none of the scratchinesss that lopi has. I will definately be knitting myself something in it. Yay a long weekend and a chance to relax and have a sleep in, but also a time to reflect on our Anzac past. In peace time it is easy to forget the significance of the sacrifices that young men and women made for the sake of their country. My Grandfathers brother was killed in WW1 and although I never knew him I will take time out to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice that he and many others made in that war and other wars since. LEST WE FORGET.
