my Nuuk in stripes

This t-shirt pullover pattern was easy to follow and a great knit. I knitted this with two colors due to huge hue difference in the dye lots even thou they were from the same patch – or so i was told :-S But i think like this – it works beautifully – gives the knit a little more “umph”. 

My main color was Hedgehog Fibres Merino DK in Salty Tales – beautiful squishy yarn. For CC i used Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic DK – bold white for the vibrant but dark Salty Tales. 

The knit flew off the needles pretty fast – only hinderance was that i needed one more skein of Salty Tales and couldn’t find it from local shops. Until i heard they were ordering some more – and had the opportunity to have a skein held for me.

So far i have finished two of these – all with some variations into the original pattern. Different neckline, longer sleeves, very long sleeves -> my yellow summer tee & furry green
