Olympic Liesl is Finished!
No, not the swimmer, but my sweater.
The pattern is Liesl by Ysolda Teague.
The yarn is Aran Silky Merino by Sundara in the Celestial Clouds colorway, a spring color from last year's "Seasons" yarn club. I used 600 yards (3 skeins) of the yarn and the sweater was knit in 8 days on 7.0mm needles.
I found pretty handmade buttons with the colors of the yarn swirled inside. The sweater should be dry and blocked, with buttons attached, and ready for wear on this week's short vacation to the beach.
Be back soon!
