I just love how these two match up!
The postcard provided in the Solsilke kit is a nice way to mark how much is left of the pattern on my sweater. Also, it's fun to see that the apples are not the same as the sweater photographed. The postcard sweater has stockinette apples, and the Solsilke/Susanna Hansson pattern uses garter. They not only pop with color, but burst with texture!
I'm not sure if the postcard image is from a museum piece, or a test-knit by the Solveig/Susanna duo. (Perhaps I should check the back of the postcard!) The apples in the larger gauge sweater in Poems of Color introduce a third treatment to the apples. Interesting, this lack of continuity.
I'm just loving the process of this sweater. The photo was taken somewhere around row 38-- there are only 70 colorwork rows in this design. I've certainly slowed down to enjoy it. :)
Unblocked sweater underbelly.
Lots and lots of floats!
Unfortunately, I might just finish the colorwork over the holiday.
Let's see how long I can drag this out...
