Knitting

I am almost finished with this one. Dominik's sweater for this winter. I hope I will show you the whole piece soon.
By the way, where are good yarn stores? I bought this yarn through handpaintedyarn.com, it is good but I want to try something different. Any advice?

I wish I was better at knitting..yours looks wonderful! You could try sourcing alpaca wool, it is very good, soft and silky.

Can't wait to see the whole thing! Have you checked Etsy for nice yarns? Personally, I'm in love with larimeloom's yarns @ etsy, though on the pricey side. If I ever go back to knitting, perhaps I'll treat myself to some!

Thanks, Fine Little Day, for reminding me what I do every day. I should think more about my preferences. Just reading a book would be nice. Apart from that, I started PhD, formally, that is all so far.

Great pattern! I love the cables. I have not made a sweater for a long time - just have not had the time to focus on it. I have 18 days off during Christmas! Can you believe it!! Perfect for a knitting project.

The pattern and the yarn, both look so good.

I know that many are buying yarn from here, but I have no personal experience with it. http://shop.strato.de/epages/61425309.sf/en_US/?ObjectPath=/Shops/61425309/Categories

This is a Finnish yarn store which delivers into EU countries and this one I can recommend. International orders must be done by e-mail.

www.yarn.com. They are an American company. I don't know how their international shipping rates are, but they have everything. And good prices too. I just ordered from them and was very pleased!
