Third time was the charm, Chris. The sweater is beautiful and I love this color- what is it called and what is the fiber and brand? How long did it take to knit in fingering weight?

Hi Albert, Thanks for the responce.The yarn is 50/50 wool/alpaca in a Russian made yarn bought 5 years ago as a close out.I used it double and got 5 sts.per inch on#7 needles. the color, a little darker than photo. The lable was in Russian.It took about 3 weeks. The new sweater is in Green Mountain Spinnery Cotton Comfort.I'm getting 6 sts. per inch on #4 needles and I have 3 inches to go before assembling body and sleeves for the yolk. This has already taken 3 weeks.
