    Just gorgeous Lolly! Your pictures capture the joy you have for ‘finally’ making a sweater that was one of your initial inspirations as you started to knit. I’m sure it will be well worn this winter. :) Once the holidays are over I’ll be picking up my 1st sweater to work on – I’ve missed it as I’ve been gift knitting.

    Beautiful work and the color is perfect too with your eyes and skin!

    O.K. this came out amazing! You look absolutely gorgeous in blue–one of your best colors I must say:)

  11. Carla

    The large hood looks elegant and romantic. The lovely blue which brings out your wonderful eyes doesn’t hurt, either.

    Lolly – so, so gorgeous!!! And, I think the hood looks very Elizabethan. Love it.

    I will add my “what a fabulous sweater” comment to the mix here, Lolly. It looks great, you did such a good job, it suits you quite well!

    Congrats on an awesome sweater! It matches your eyes!

  15. carrie m

    it looks so lovely! and i say hold off on the zipper for now — zippers are a pain!
    happy holidays dear lolly!

  16. Stacey

    Gorgeous :) Very nice work.

  17. Jennifer

    Gorgeous sweater! Gorgeous colour on you! Quick question: Is the yarn you made it with scratchy? I looked at the link to the mill you bought it from and think it would be perfect for a project I have in mind.

    Beautiful, Lolly! Looks great on you! You did a fabulous job!

    Your hoodie is gorgeous and looks fabulous on you. I’ve had similar mishaps with non-separating zippers. Why do they make those in all of the colors you want?

    Wonderful sweater!

  21. Kat with a K

    Looks great!

  22. Mome-rath

    I actually love the deep hood. There’s something so…satisfying about it! Plus, I feel like I look silly in shallow hoods, but kind of elvish in deep ones. I’ve never attempted to knit one, though…baby steps. Congrats on finishing!

  23. Moni

    I LOVE It! wow! the color is simply gorgeous and so are you. I can tell that that is going to get a lot of use.

  24. katie m.

    Soooo pretty! The color is wonderful — so blue and rich.

  25. connie

    It’s so cute on you! It was definitely worth it, despite the time it required. Blue is a very good color for you :)

  26. Vik

    That is such a beautiful sweater!

  27. ali

    That is an absolutely gorgeous blue! Turned out great- looks cozy!

    Happy knitting-

  28. Bette

    What a gorgeous sweater!! That color blue looks totally fab on you!

  29. Tami

    Love the Hoodie! That color looks great on you.

    Happy Holidays!

    wow, that color is gorgeous on you. i’ve been reading your blog for awhile as a lurker, but i had to post about this. i’m going to give that yarn a try…

    i think wooden toggle buttons would be cute on the front of that sweater. (someone linked to crocheted loops and buttons at knitscene–if you scroll down, you’ll see an example of wooden toggle buttons too). or a zipper. imo, you might get tired of having no way of closing the front.

  31. KnitPastis

    Stunning! This one of my most favorite colors of blue too.

  32. strikkelise

    It’s lovely, a great colour. And it looks great on you! I saw this on Flickr earlier. Hope you’re having a good holiday.

  33. carolyn

    wonderful job, beautiful sweater, gorgeous on you!

  34. Lynne

    It’s great, Lolly…you’ve inspired me to finish my own SSH! Beautifully done.

    [...] As I bound off on the shawl yesterday, I had the inspiration to focus on the natural ivory of the yarn, pairing it with some white clothing.  From there, I wanted to experiment with some photographic elements, and I asked Kris to help me put together a photoshoot.  We picked up a Strobist Kit with remote flashes last year.  Kris uses it a lot for his aquarium photography and I have used it occasionally for both light box photography and FO shoots.
