Just Finished: Strokkur

Do you know Ysolda Teagues Strokkur Sweater? I love this pattern so much that I had to knit it twice! I chose Ysoldas Strokkur Sweater as a first time color-work project and I couldn't have been luckier with my choice. The sweater knits up very fast thanks to thick, fluffy yarn. While you work your way bottom up you can prepare yourself mentally for that final color-work part. The good news color work isn't that hard and this particular pattern is really easy to knit.
For my second Strokkur I chose a limited edition yarn I had in my stash for ages. The yarn is called Drops Loves You IV by Garnstudio, it's a wool-alpaca-mixture with 5% linen. I was really surprise how soft and fluffy this yarn feels.
