At Last, a knitting finish

This one has taken quite a little while to finish.  The pattern was easy to do, but being four ply, it took time to grow.
It was made quicker by having a slash neck, the ribbing was done as part of the front and back pieces, so the sewing up part was quicker. 
It's quite a pretty blue, grey colour.  The yarn is Wendy Mode 4 ply, 50% pure merino wool, 50% fine acrylic, so was lovely and soft to knit with.

There is another project waiting for a finish in my knitting back, I just need to do some sleeves, maybe that will see the light of day before the end of the month.

The texture is very fetching. I'm sure it was a slow go, but worth it in the end.

Nicely done!

I do love knitting with 4ply. It takes its time but the result is well worth it. This sweater is evidence of that.
