Sweater, colors from plants.

Made it three years ago, but I have never used it.

Great colors and love the paper-doll design around the middle. Did you dye the wool/yarn?

I love it.... When you say the colours are from plants, do you mean you dyed the yarn using plant material, or you took inspiration from say, a bed of marigolds and gallardia?

It's truly beautiful, you should wear it...Such things were not meant to be unloved.

Thank you for commenting. Yes, all the colours are from plant material, and I did it myself. It's a summer activity for me. Plenty of work, but I like it.

Wow- it's beautiful, like a midsummer sunset.

Veni, vidi, kniti.

Thanks! Yes, I think I had a sunset in mind whwn I made it. The sunsets in my homarea are wery beutiful and at midsummer the sun sets at eleven.

It should be a criminal offence to keep something this beautiful hidden in a dark place. Shame on you!

That's easy to fix...Sewing machine steek... I do it for clients all the time.

How big is it? Maybe it would fit me!!!

That is really beautiful, I would wear that every chance I had. To bad it's to large for you, you could send it to me. ;-)
